I had a few cases like this one on almost all iphone versions.

If you are certain your problem is not the screen and you checked for obvious damage /loose parts near the lcd and touch fps connector then you might be facing this problem:

Your Touch IC itself or the solderballs under it are damaged causing this ghostlike action. This happens most of the time when a phone was dropped to often or to hard. The fact that you had to change the screen shows it had been dropped at least once. The solutions would be a replacement of that IC which is a bga repair and very difficult for beginner and needs alot of equipment.

I know the device has been dropped 100s of times. It is a family friend. so new phone and swap over info would be best? I have never tried to micro solder and have no exp in it...... would you recommend me trying?


Any chance you can look at my other questions to.....? specially the Rebooting issue!!!!


i would not recommend you trying. I'm sure, even if you are talented.You will mess it up :) Like i did a few times before I got it right. Not many do this repair, if you find one great. Otherwise you will need a new logic board or an entire new phone for that matter.
