    if my solution is not working, you have faulty touch screen driver /ic.
    replacing lcd and digitizer is your last resort.

    my 1520 still working and no complain from the 2 clients.
    And which one was yours? ... I'm not putting another penny into this phone just to try to sell it. And definitely not when some say the problem still returns. This was the Windows phone I will buy, I've already switched to Android

    My first 1520 (bought as a recent MS refurb) is currently on eBay (search for "wonky"). It worked fine for 6-8 weeks, then phantom touch crept in, then it was totally unusable - then it worked fine, then it was totally unusable, etc.
    My current (supposedly brand new - looks like it was a treasury dept unit never deployed) so far is fine - other than I have a touch/selecting issue in Messenger only! Go figure - maybe a Windows 10 problem.

    This works for me as well- initially. however, the problem always tends to slowly come back. I go back in, add more paper, it works for a little, but eventually the phone will start freaking out again.

    Anyone else have this?

    ONLY permanent solution is to replace the whole assembly (LCD + digitizer + frame)!

    My conclusion as well, i have had many 1520's and tried all mentioned solutions. Nothing works for a longer period of time except for changing the screen for an original one.

    Unfortunately an OEM digitizer if you can even be sure its OEM is half the cost of a replacement

    I have had a lot of 1520's on my desk: cracked screen, ghost touches or battery problems. One advise I can give is to not bother with the cheap LCD assemblies below 100 €. Most of them already come already with manufacturing defects (dead spots on digitizer, clouding, backlight bleeding, flickering). Almost every assembly started to come apart where the frame is glued to the glass and glass lifts away, dirt comes in ...
    Same with battery: cheap ones have no authentification circuitry, charge only up to ~83%.
    Honestly: a genuine Nokia screen and battery will cost you around 250 € from trusted source. Only for parts, considering you install it by yourself. And that is way too much to put into such an old phone. And with the uncertain future of W10m ... just retire or dump it and get a new phone.
