    since nothing to lose, check for under mother board, digitazier coonector and grounding
    also it could be part of digitzer connector broken in your case, ive seen another picture on other fourm showing little terminal broken coming from the top front glass but it was due to hard bending on jeans pocket
    also there is a little terminal down going to the button to the three buttons
    you may push those areas firm ( the down area not the top since still working ) to check if any response , in that case it will need new front glass

    OK, It's getting late. I'll tinker with the phone and probably make more damage tomorrow!
    Thanks again, you've been a lot of help.

    this one you see how the button work and connected to digitizer maybe this is the weak point you got, i would just follow and press around the frame and on the low part left and see if any improvement to confirm a bad digitizer also you may not get any results by doing so but dont press too much like if you are pressing a 300 gram weight of pressure

    still the buttons are dead.
    The good news is the daughterboard is not too expensive. I've had to replace mine before be cause the mic went out.

    Do the buttons Light up? If not make sure the board is installed right side up and not up side down.

    Hesham, how is your phone holding up? Has it started acting up again with the phantom touches? If you make it a whole week without incident that's a good sign.

    LMAO! Welcome to my world! Most phones I either feel dread and remember crap that has gone wrong with them or eye them with suspicion. It was the same when I worked on cars for a living.....oh no I wonder what certain types of doctors go through (I'll be no more graphic than that).

    Well I had to go ahead perform this special procedure on my 1520. It was just acting up too much and too often. If what Hesham is saying is right and I believe he is. Squeezing in any place and bending the phone is not a good solution. It just makes it worse eventually. This however seems to be the best solution. I did it last night and my phone hasn't acted up at all and that's a miracle for my phone. The only thing I didn't do was the step with heat gun, cause I don't have one. I have to go back in cause I didn't hook up the antennas properly and now my signal is bad but it's no biggy. I've been down this road before. Just detach and reattach and make it's on securely. Hesham you are the man. And if this solution still doesn't work later down the road, well at least you've improved our quality of life till the end.

    As the saying goes: "Never meet your hero." I'm waiting on the L640 or 640 xl to hold me over till the next flagship comes out.

    You should see the way I pick up and handle my 1520. You'd think it's a newborn baby. I can't wait to have a brand new phone that I never have to operate on. So I can go back to being a regular person.

    And this is the very reason my BLU Win HD has become my daily use phone now. While I have to baby my 1520, I can abuse (relatively) my BLU and the little bugger takes it all without a problem. One of my jobs is a physically demanding job and I have broken 521s and 635s in the past. It is the most sturdy smartphone I have ever used, and despite the snapdragon 200 it performs smoothy while giving me that Snapdragon 200 battery life.

    Thanks Donny, I hope it work too , was thinking about 640 but I got a basic Samsung for application, build quality is bad with touch delay during charging but you get application update each few days, it's the golden egg for developers, waiting for Windows 10

    after 10 days, i got little problem but something new, there is a certain area on the rubber frame when i hold it while watching a video , the phone vibrate as if am pressing the window button key, i check this area behind the rubber i found a thin layer of glass under and tiny piece of it shattered into 3 little pieces,
    i dont remember i use a hard tool with this phone, never fall , i believe now that is the main problem its connected with digitzer thats why when ever i take off back cover phone scroll smother cause back cover apply pressure on the phone front glass ,might come this way from factory due to design or because phone too big and i used to put it on front pocket apply some pressure on it and glass shattered around frame which i will never see it , changing the entire lcd will fix it as some said this and it might come back again due to the fragile of design as some said too it return back after a while of use with new lcd, better be careful with this phone treat it like a baby never leave carry case , last thing how could i buy again from a company ignore our problems!

    I had a few small issues but they seem to go away once the phone is well protected. I bought this case for my phone.
