Default Hello fellow Droiders

I have a problem with my phone . A technical one .

in portrait mode the touchscreen is not responsive at all but in landscape everything is just fine.
ofc , i tried other roms , wipped OS , reinstalled it , but it always happens .
it usually work for a day or two (in portrait , but it works like hell , extremely laggy , it double-triple taps when i touch the screen , it does not unlock and i need to take out the battery in order to use the phone again)

Now i am just using the phone with the qwerty out and that is an inconvenient sometimes ..

What could the problem be ( i must mention that i dropped the phone on the floor severel to a hundred times ) , i might think there is a problem with the phones sensor , maybe something at the cables which connect the front side of the phone with the back one or maybe the touchscreen ( but i dont think it is its fault )

some advices b4 im take it to a mobile phone service ?

No advices such as "contact verizon bla bla bla"i am from romania .

Honestly you would be best taking it apart yourself to see what part it is.

Should just be a standard Torx screwdriver set.

Yes, but to replace the digitizer on the Droid3 there is one especially small torx driver required that most kits do not include. I think it is a T3, maybe a T2.5, but in any case I had to look hard to find one online.

Repairing the Droid3 at this level is quite difficult, even with the correct tools, especially if there has been any wear or corrosion of those tiny torx screw heads. They can easily be ruined rather than backing out.

Best left to professionals maybe, and then you have to wonder if it is worth the time and trouble for a Droid3 ?
