    Like you said you tried a hard reset which didn't help. So we can say that its a hardware issue. I'd recommend visiting Troubleshooter - Nokia Lumia 720 - Nokia - Pakistan for trouble shooting.

    Or visit Store Locator - Nokia - Pakistan for locating the nearest Nokia Care point in Lahore.

    Try hard reset by following the steps mentioned below:

    1. Turn off your phone.
    2. Press Volume DOWN and keep pressing it while you connect the charger until you see an exclamation mark!.
    3. Press - in this order - Volume UP - Volume DOWN - POWER - VOLUME DOWN.
    4. Your phone will reset and reboot. Please be patient during the reset process.

    A hard reset seemed to fix the automatic screen registers for a friend of mine who owns a 720.
