Vertical Section of touch non-responsive, not screen issue
My iphone 5s was dumped in water and damaged. I dried it, replaced battery and got it running to notice 2 problems.
- There is a vertical 0.5" left section of the screen that when touched it responds in wrong areas (to left and right). So vertical scrolling works, but touching specific keys "s", "e", "d", and "z" area does not.
-Flash is not working. Not that big of issue.
Of course I thought it to be the digitizer and replaced the entire screen, but the same touch issue with brand new screen.
Any other ideas? Could there be a short? Can I repair?
Is this a good question?
