Montasser Ben Gadri, usually when the digitizer (touch) is unresponsible at a certain area of your screen, it is the digitizer that needs to be replaced.

Thank you very much for your answer. Is it easily replacable? Where do i find the cheapest place for nexus s digitizers?


Thank you for accepting my answer. Sorry, nothing is ever really easy, but it is not a bad job. Check on the teardown Nexus S Teardown it does give you a good idea what's involved. You can also check om here As for the cheapest place, it really depends on your geographical location.I tried Google and average price ~$120....Hope this helps.The reason for that is cause the Digitizer and the LCD are a lot easier to change as one unit....

by $80... but it's from china, so you'll have a wait on delivery.


Thank you for your great help.
