Lumia 900 touch screen problem (interlaced rows and digitizer is not picking up touches)
My Lumia 900 is giving me a really bad problem.Much of the screen is now interlaced - basically alternating rows (or perhaps groups) of pixels are not displaying on the screen. At the same time, the touch screen is very hard to use. It's hard to press keys, to swipe. I notice that in messaging (emails), it's very hard to even select emails or to swipe - (the screen background then is white).
For SMS, it's very difficult and slow to type messages now.
When this started happening, I would just turn off the screen and turn it back on - often the problem would go away (= I would see the full screen without the interlacing problem). Now, it's less "normal" - i rarely have a properly functioning screen.
I've used the On Service diagnostics (##634#) to check the "basic integrity of the touchscreen" - and it confirms that the touchscreen seems pretty dead. I'm traveling out of the country right now, so I won't be able to visit an AT&T service centre yet - althought I might try to drop in some of the Nokia shops
I've taken several pictures of the issue - you need to zoom into 100% (or more) to really see the problem.
I think the problem is with digitizer or maybe the connector for the digitizer. Has anyone had this problem? Any solutions?
