Default Vertical bar not touchscreen that does not work

I was wondering if anyone else is having a similar problem. I have a vertical bar on the left side (not edge) that has no response to touch. I tried it even in recovery and it doesn't work. Do you guys have any solution other than changing the digitizer?

Nope. I had the same issue where the right 10% of my screen wasn't responsive. Took it to Sprint and it was a bad digitizer. They replaced the whole screen assembly since the digitizer is hard to fix on the 3d. Free for me with TEP, but it would have cost $35.

You can download apps that test the screen and find if you have dead spots or ghost touches. I myself had to lock/re-lock my phone twice to finish this post, cause mine is going bad. :-\
