Unhappy [Q] My HTC HD2 is going berserk

Since about 2 months, my HTC HD2 sometimes runs into a strange behavior.
It's like some invisible fingers are touching the screen very quickly, triggering apps, menus, and sometimes calling people!
The only way to stop that is to restart the phone (but when the HD2 starts to behave that way, it's difficult to restart it, as these "invisible fingers" are still competing with MY fingers!).
I don't know what caused the problem in the first place, and I don't know what triggers the problem when it happens.
Is my HD2 out of order?
Thanks
Gz

It could be that your touchscreen is too sensitive and your sweat from your fingers is triggering it; Did you try cleaning the screen, your hands and using a screen protector?

your digitizer is going to die very soon
My life:
HP iPAQ Messenger 514 > HTC Touch Dual > HTC Diamond > HTC HD > HTC HD2 > HTC Desire > HTC HD2 > LG Optimus 3D > NOKIA Lumia 800 > HTC HD2 > LG Prada 3.0 > Lenovo P770

I cant stop loving the legendary HD2.

By "digitizer", you mean the touch glass?
Did it happened to you before?
Why so many of your phones had their glasses cracked?
Thanks

Try to massage the screen around the corners especially above the buttons.

There is some kind of "glue" to prevent contact with metal but if its old or used it could make this problem.

Maby you can trigger it or at least find the point where to press to make it stop.

=> using a heating fan (warm not hot!) to vaporize water could help too maby. No warranty here!

dertester123 you may have found the real cause of the problem, but I'll have to test more before I can confirm.
Cheers.

i have been having the same problem lately and i must say, i'm pretty sure it's about the sweaty fingers! i have read on other sites that the capacitive (?) screen is too sensitive and that many are experiencing these problems, especially during summer!

Just place some waterdrops on the display or use it with fingers that you put some lotion on....

Problem is when it gets under the display, but thats rather uncommon i hope;D
I case its just just sweaty fingers, what are pants for?

I have the same problem but it only happens in my music app. Could this be causedby a virus of some sort?
