Default Note 3 Touch Stops Responding or Working

Has anyone had issues with their Samsung Note 3 and touch input?

Mine will get into a state where it not longer responds to touch. It will respond if I pull out the stylus and use that; or if I turn off the screen then turn it back on, it will start responding again.

It has done this maybe 50 times since I got it two days ago :-\

Yes I have the same issue. Do you have the Rogers version of the Note 3?

I created a couple of threads in hopes to find a fix.

Here they are

What is the "Rogers" version? And how would I check if I have that?

From my chat with Samsung:


Quote:
Stewart: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?
Christopher: Hello, I have a Note 3, and I am having issues where the screen becomes unresponsive to FINGER touch.
Christopher: But if I pull out the stylus, it responds to that just fine. It seems to get into this state in a variety of apps & games, as well as on my home launcher screen. Only thing that resolves it is turning the screen off and on again.
Stewart: I understand that your device screen is not responding to your finger touch. Is that correct?
Christopher: That is correct. It happens several times a day
Stewart: Thank you. I will be glad to assist you.
Stewart: Is there any screen protector on the screen?
Christopher: No
Stewart: Thank you.
Stewart: Let us try to troubleshoot the issue by performing a soft reset in the device.
Stewart: Please follow the steps mentioned below to perform a soft reset on your Phone.

1. Turn off the handset.
2. Remove the battery and wait for 30 seconds.
3. Reinsert the battery and turn ON the device.

Christopher: okay, doing that now
Stewart: Please go ahead.
Christopher: Device is starting now
Stewart: Okay.
Stewart: Please check whether the issue persists after the device turned ON.
Christopher: I am checking
Stewart: Okay.
Christopher: The issue happens randomly
Christopher: So it may not repro right away
Stewart: If the issue persists further , you can try contacting the place of purcjase and get the device replaced under 15 days replacement warranty.
Christopher: What other reasons could cause it?
Christopher: If it happens again, is replacement the only choice?
Stewart: We do not have such reported issues at our end.
Christopher: Yesterday, it was also randomly doing the haptic-vibrate even though I wasn't doing anything
Stewart: There might be some issue with the device.
Christopher: How do I replace it? Do I take it to any AT&T store?
Stewart: Yes, please.
Surprisingly, since I did that, the issue went away. Now it's only been since yesterday afternoon that I did that, so hopefully I haven't jinx'd myself.......

Mine has been doing this as well especially on the lock screen and on games have to hit power button to get it to respond. I pulled the battery once but didn't wait 30 secs so I just did it again. I hope it works or I'm taking it back.

I got the same issue. I will also try removing the battery. Hope it works.
God created turbo lag to give V8s a chance.
