charging causing issues to touchscreen

So lately I've had the problem of my phone's touch display malfunctioning when connected to a charger (This includes when it's 100% and charging)

Say this:

I'm typing a message in Whatsapp, and when I press the E button on the keyboard it spaces out and presses something else instead, (not just typing, but swiping, scrolling, anything that requires touch input (which is basically everything))

I think I might be able to fix this myself, but I'd need to know which part it would be, does anyone know which part to replace if that's the problem?

Note: this only happens when I'm in using an app or doing anything, when I'm on the lock or home screen it works perfectly fine, however even in the notification centre it causes this issue.

Second Note: Mostly the bottom area gets affected the most

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It's a common issue with aftermarket screens.

Only solution is to get higher quality aftermarket screens or just use refurbished OEM / original 5C screens.

Or somehow better grounding on the screen, which I don't think it's possible would fix the problem as well.

Well my phone itself is refurbished, would that have any effect?


Yeah, with refurbished I assume most likely the screen on it has been replaced before and is an aftermarket screen.

If you are using an aftermarket wall charger and cable, try using an original wall charger and cable and see if that helps, I assume that original chargers and cables provide a more stable and clean power going into the phone.
