Yes it´s the touch ic. The problem is caused by the solder balls. If the iPhone get´s warm the error disappears. Lay it in a fridge an the problem get´s worser. Before replacing the touch ic check the touch screen connector on any damage. If there is none you can first try to reflow the ic. If that does´t fix the bad touch replace the ic.

Hi Marius,

Yes, at this precise moment he is working but if i disconect the conectors and put ir back again it will not work.

If i disconect the battery a few times he start work again.

Maybe i will try to reflow it first..
