Default Part of my Nexus 4 touchscreen unresponsive

I have originally asked the same question in purity rom thread but the issue comes again after half month.

Part of my touchscreen suddenly becomes unresponsive.

I have to swipe hardly on the screen in order to unlock my phone by pattern.

For the past few occurrence,the issue is gone when I charge my phone for a short period of time and the touchscreen is OK.

I am not sure if it is a rom (latest purity 4.4.2 rom 14/04), kernel (hellscore b46t4), app (touch control, nova launcher, LMT launcher) or hardware issues. I also have my SGP screen protector used over a year. Not sure what really happened.

I have flashed also franco and matr1x kernel but the issue persists.

I am charging my phone and hope the issue will be gone

My warranty is over and I really hope that was just a software problem.

I am with latest 4.4.2 purity rom, hellscore b46t4.

I have attached 2 screenshot from YAMTT and here is a screen recording video.

If anyone experienced anything similar, please help.

Thanks everyone

Hardware problem. Touchscreen partial failure, maybe due to overheating. Replace touchscreen.

Mine started doing this in the same area last month. I was able to enable autorotation under accessability, so now if I need to select something in a dead spot I rotate it and its no longer in a dead spot, well, usually.
