Default [Q] Middle horizontal line of the screen no touch

Hi guys,
Last days my Nexus 4 start to have a problem:
the imaginary middle horizontal line of my touch doesn't work's just a line!
It makes difficult to scroll o to posh down the notification bar, to tap or click and so on!

I'm not sure it's physically damaged!
I've installed CM 10.2 20131026.
I saw someone else have this kind of problem, but everyone is a noob! (About like me)

Just for info, I've tried to use the developer setting to "view the taps".... it confirmed the problem!

Thanks in advance guys!

restore to stock and check if its still there, generally you use the phone for a few days to check if its alright before you flash

Seems to be the same problem that I got. I also opened a thread here:

And I did a bit of research and it seems to be a known hardware issue. I will return it with warranty I guess.

Edit: Take a look at my screens I did in the thread. Or try it on your own with any screen tester app.

I just had this happen to me. I just get the nexus 4 from t-mobile last week. And know the touch screen is no working in the middle of the screen. I got a replacement coming. But I was play with its some time work normal if I had it plug in for 30min or more..
I just like to know how common is this issue. I hope it not that common. because I just paid 30 for the phone the first time and now I paid 20 for the replacement. They gave me the option to get a different phone. I hope its just a uncommon thing. they did made over 500,000 phone.
