    Question Touch Screen Not Responding

    This happens every so often. It has been a while since I've had this problem until now. It seems like it stays unresponsive for a lot longer than before and rebooting it doesn't help at all, it just starts working again when it feels like it and when it does start to come around it's really glitchy like it wants to move but it gives up and then it starts working like normal. I don't know what sets it off, I have noticed it doesn't seem to matter if it's fully charged or almost dead or if it has been used a lot or not much and it has been running different ROMs. I did a forum search but didn't really come up with anything for this. Could there be a quick way to get it to work again? I can't even answer the phone or unlock the screen because nothing moves at all but if it's the same as before it'll start working again, I just hope sooner than later! If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.

    This is a bug found in the 2.3 gingerbread update. For some reason it doesn't always like to wakeup from sleep. Unfortunitally there is no real fix except rolling back to 2.2 froyo.

    I'm on Android 2.2, kernel 2.6.32.17 etc, and the touch screen still doesn't work, from time to time. Rebooting (if I'm lucky enough to be able to power it off!) works to clear it. Although, for example, I just did that, and while touch screen works in most places, I can't scroll down the advice bar at the top to display incoming messages / emails / alerts etc, and touching menu options sometimes takes a couple of goes. I have an HTC Legend. Any other ideas? Thanks.

    I have the same problem... The screen will just randomly stop responding to my touch. However, holding down the on/off button until it reboots seems to fix it for me....

    My phone was working fine. I hung up a call and two seconds later tried to unlock my phone to read a text and my touch screen was not responding. I tried rebooting multiple times. I cannot unlock my phone or use any of my phone functions besides turning it on or off. Is there a fix for this?

    Just put a little bit drop of screen cleaner (or water) on the icon where you open your device then swipe. It worked for me.

    My phone cracked and it used to still work, but now only the hardware buttons work. The touches are unresponsive, can anybody give some suggestions?

    use adb to get at it with android screencast through a pc?

    the THANKS button is quite acceptable if you're as stingy as me, too.
