Default Phantom or Ghost Touch Screen LG Optimus G

Few days earlier I started to notice this problem after 5 months of use of my device. My screen starts rapidly shaking left to right and front touch panel stop working, it happen when I freshly open an apps. To temporarily fixed it, I have to press power button to turn off the screen. Is it a hardware or software problem?

Did you flashed any rom or kernel?
Do you use trickster?
Some people sayed that uninstalling trickster solved their ghost touches on the keyboard (may not work in your case).
I had a similar problem and was because of a kernel.
If you had modified anything try to use stock for a while and see if the problem persist

I was ghosts touches on my screen. One was pressed on all sides. To fix it I had to turn off and turn on the screen. I decided to change the touchscreen and the problem was fixed. Now it works ok.

Sorry my english.

I bought it on ebay. Screen+touch+ frame. This option:
http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=111278902215
But You can buy other options.

1. Touch + screen+ frame (medium dificult)

2. Touch + screen without frame (best option)

3. Only touch screen. (very dificult option)

Many people have told me that the best option is 2, without frame to not be taking off parts that are originally attached to the frame.

You can see totorials on youtube

Ghost Touch now keeps rapidly pulsing at the buttom edge of my screen (portrait) my phone is sometimes uncontrollable. I never thought this kind of newer high end device gets broken so easily under short period of time. I never experienced this from my good old Galaxy Y, Xperia mini and X8 that I accidentally deep under water even now still working in mint condition. So sad with LG products. I was planning to buy LG G Pad but because of this I probably get Nexus 7 instead.

Im going to sell this for $155

Reflash it again with stock firmware twice, problem still persist

Its now a hardware issue

Touch screen seems deteriorating overtime. At first Ghost Touch, then on the next day a dead touch portion just above the home screen panel where the ghost touch first occurred rapidly moving back and then after few days a ghost touch appeared again just below in the middle of the screen (portrait) then after an hour probably about 1.5mm size thickness dead touch. Now a I have 2 horizontal dead touch portion of my screen and probably more to come if I keep using it.

Few days ago i'v got first phaton/ghost touch problem. I used Omni 4.4.4 so

- reflash to clean OmniRom (try few kernels) - the same
- flash to Android L Preview - the same

.....

Install - ARTMod ROM so 99,9%of stock - and as for now all its ok.

Strange.
