    Default Touch not registered on right side

    Running liquid Smooth rom and love it. But lately I can't press the very right hand side of the screen when in portrait mode, or the very top in landscape mode.

    This is a problem when trying to click the "p" key in portrait mode. It keeps selecting "o" instead.

    I think I remember BAMF had an option to re-align the screen, but I never actually used it. I've been looking for a similar option in liquid Smooth but can't find it. Any help would be great appreciated.

    I dug through the standard Settings as well as the Liquid Settings and couldn't find anything like that. Unfortunately, it sounds like your screen is starting to go. You could try flashing back to (rooted) stock, since I seem to remember the stock ROM having that capability, or go back to BAMF, and just see if you can readjust the screen in either of those - if not, you know it's time to start looking for a replacement before it gets worse.

    I'm having a similar problem but mine is on the left side....and on occasions it will start flipping and act like I am hitting a point on the screen or scrolling up and down. I'm unrooting and returning to stock as I type this and if that doesn't help I'm headed to verizon tomorrow. I let you know if I figure anything out.

    It is hardware. My phone acted possessed. Called VZW and 'scared' me into using the Asurion coverage.

    I was having the same problem with what I thought was with custom roms from BAMF and Thundershed. The right side of the keyboard is off, so if I pressed P the O is selected, etc. I went back to stock and then the screen started doing weird things as people mentioned earlier in this forum at random times, but the keyboard problem wasn't present. That was last week, this week I was fine. I just flashed rooted/stock .19 last night, so I'm keeping my eyes peeled for any other strange behavior. Hopefully this phone lasts me another year or so, but I think its showing its life for heavy use for 12+ months.

    Any update from anyone? Mine is actually getting worse. I can no longer type p or o when in portrait mode. I also can't hit the clear button from the drop down notification list anymore in portrait mode. However, I can't pull the menu down in landscape mode. So I have to pull it down in portrait, then rotate to landscape to click clear.
    It's getting very frustrating. I'm very close to buying a new phone but I really don't want to.

    I had the same issue but it wasnt a ROM issue, it was my phone. If u still have warranty ill recommend if you unroot your phone (if its rooted) and send it back to VZW and they will replace and overnight u a refurbished one.

    How long is a standard warranty? My phone is almost a year old (some time this month) but I didn't purchase any kind of extended warranty.

    It is actually 1 year if u have the TEC is 2 but since u said u dont have it then call 611 and ask them to ship a replacement. After u get the replacement u have 1 week to return your broken phone so u will have enough time to unroot. There is a post here and is really simple if u follow the steps on the post on how to unroot.

    I had the same issue as well. No fix for it, the phone needs to be replaced. Good luck as the replacements will be certified like new devices. I had two replaced in the last week with various issues and even the one I have now is acting flaky.

    I ended up having the same problem with mine. Flashed back to stock and even unrooted. It was hardware, and there was no getting around it. There is probably a dead spot down the right side of your screen, and you need to get it replaced.

    Sorry I don't have a better solution for you.

    I was just barely within the warranty period so I unrooted and stocked my phone with the app you can buy on the market. (I know I could have do done it manually but this was just soooooo much easier.) then got the warranty replacement.

    I'm actually glad I did because I think the radios are upgraded in this replacement. I used to have periodic drops of both 4g and 3g data, but they've been pretty rock solid on this replacement.

    I have rooted again just to get titanium backup working to restore my apps and to delete some bloatware, but I haven't re-rommed yet. Things seem to be working pretty well at stock rom right now.

    Anyway, thanks everyone for the advice.

    Ouch!
    So is it exactly the right half of screen or is it fourth quarter of screen, etc .. Curious

    If happens on 50% of right side, how do you answer a call if you do?

    download this app, see if it registers your touch:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...touchpro.tests

    run the app, and go to the touch input section
    if it doesn't or even misplaces your touch, very well could be the hardware

    some devices, such as the Asus 700 tablet would register touch differently when the device was connected to the power.

    But could be your digitizer will need replacing
