Hey there

A friend of mine has the following problem with his Note 3 (completely stock).

Since the latest 4.4.2 OTA update, sometimes suddenly the screen does not respond to touching it with your hand. It does react to the stylus.
Locking and unlocking the screen does the job, but only for a few minutes.

I wiped the phone via stock recovery, but the problem persists.

Anyone with the same problem, or maybe a clue?

Thanks!

Hi

Same problem here,I tried several 4.4.2 official and custom roms but not fixed and I tried these too:
I tried mega wipe and last rom in samfirmware!
I removed my external sd card
And I googled and found there are others with same problem so it shouldn't be hardware problem

p.s.When screen freezes just half of it works! And just doesn't work by fingers and it works by s_pen!

There no way to come back to 4.3 too

What should I do?

Ty in advance

Thumbs up Finally Solved!
Hi

I had same problem

I did everything u said like:
mega wipe and changing rom
custom roms
taking out battery when it's on ( I Did this but I don't know It had any effects on my phone or not!)
taking out external card

But I still Had the Problem

Solution:

But I had a flip cover and I separated that from phone and thanks God,surprisingly It's Fixed and it works like a charm!!! after that I used my original cover and there is no problem till now.


Good Luck

Had the same issue posted it here bit no one responded.

Solution: The flip case I had..there's a problem with it where it locks the screen even when the case is not closed. But lately I had no issue it just seem to gotten fixed by itself.
