Default [Q] XPERIA MINI (st15i) Touchscreen not working

Hi i have a big problem with my xperia mini,
i runs great for 3 weeks now sine i bought it,
but suddenly the touchscreen and the back&home button didn't give any respond,
i tried to restart by taking off battery, and i didn't solve the problem
i tried to flash it with stock firmware .368, it also didn't solve it

is this hardware issues or what? any suggestion before i take it to SESC?

As most of the other users who have this problem, it's a hardware issue. Really, after 3 weeks, before you have this problem?

I have the same unit st15i and only a day before reaching 3-weeks. Hoping I won't have this problem.

What color is your unit and model made? (you can check it after you remove the battery) mine is 11w31m

Try to repair the software with PC Companion. Click on Support Zone > Start > Repair phone. Just follow the on-screen instructions from here on.
If this won't fix your problem you need to have the phone handed in for repair at a service center unfortunately.
Call the local support team for more info on this (service location etc.).

Check the post in general information about the touchscreen solution using a script. You will need a rooted stock Rom.
