Ghost clicking attacks after screen replacment


I have just replaced my iPhone 5S screen (after some slight water damage, only on the screen).

But now I experience some ghost clicks. But not everytime, it comes in attacks.

It seems also more happening in sms and snapchat, because i haven't had a single ghost click in whatsapp.

I don't know what this is, how can I fix it?

Is this a good question?

Are you sure there is no liquid damage on the board?

Remove the black tape cover which is around the screen connectors on the logic board for any corossion or liquid residue.

Simon could be caused by more water damage than you thought or a bad display assembly. I'd replace the assembly once more just to rule it out. Poor digitizer/LCD assemblies can cause the "ghost clicks"
