    Sorry to disappoint you guys here but this is not a "solution". What you seeing here is simply the result from tearing down the phone down and putting it back together. Everything getting aligned a bit different compared to before which is sometimes enough to get proper contact for a while. But that is temporary only. Even the torque of a single screw can be the "solution". But again that is all not permanent. I confirmed this with my phone. And I neversaw anybody whi got the issue fixed with those kind of homebrew hacks. Successfull results I have only seen after replacement of the screen assembly.

    i faced this problem two weeks ago so i decided to open my phone.
    the solution is to cover the IC and resistors or capacitors of the touch screen with electrical tape to prevent those components from contacting/grounding the metal shield of the motherboard.

    hi, I managed to solve mine with thermal paste on the chip that is on the side of the camera, it helped a lot. more before I tried your idea of ​​putting a tape on the chip that is under the board and it did not work, it has a super heating on another chip, turn it on and see for yourself where it gets hot. the bug still fails but very little, almost nothing, I can use the device normally.

    I replaced my screen 3 weeks ago and that is when it actually started to happen. Took it appart again, put some Electrical tape, and still it would not help. So, I am more inclied to believe it is related to heat and/or like mentioned ealrlier some staic discharge of some sort. I might try anti stic tape instead of electrcal tape next time I take it apart.

    One solution that seems to address all these concerns revolves around separation between the screen and digitizer....the solution I saw posted was to DELICATELY heat-gun the screen/digitizer, using a touchless digital thermometer to get the temp to 155-185:


    from answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mobiledevices/forum/mdlumia-mdtips/lumia-1520-screen-flickers-hangs/14096d6c-98d1-4fe3-bb31-690cae4555a6

    this solution also makes sense in view of processor heating causing the screen and digitizer to expand/contract at different rates, and the problem seems to get worse when the processor gets warm. Ie, its a thermal exapnsion issue making a separation issue worse, which would explain why thermal pasting or providing a heat transfer path from the hot processor alleviates the symptoms somewhat

    I had this problem pretty bad, then read some replies to a YouTube video where someone said the problem is putting the large phone in your tight pocket bends it. They said lay the phone screen down on a flat glass surface and make sure all corners touch and do not rock or teeter. Mine did, I carefully bent the phone back to a flat position (pushing my thumbs on the case behind the screen) and now I have no more phantom finger! Now that I know what to look for, it is an easy fix.
