Hi,

History:
I've got Sony Xperia tipo. While it was in my pocket yest, I got a call and unfortunately in the hurry of picking the call i dropped the phone down. The phone's screen was the point of contact with the ground and after that my there were lines on my screen. The screen glass is intact, there are several horizontal lines making the visiblity poor. However, after the hit, touch has become a bit unresponsive. it hangs for 17 seconds exactly and then resumes to work fine.. this lag occurs quite frequently....

Problem:
> horizontal Lines have appeared on the screen, thus making the visibility poor
> Becomes unresponsive for 17 seconds, after that throws an error notification "the "------ " became unresponsive.

Question:
> Is it the digitizer or LCD screen or is it something else at fault ?


Please Help me in resolving this issue
Thanks in advance
Have a nice day

If touch doesn't work and the screen is weird, then you'll probably need to replace both.

With how the screen looks, you need to replace the LCD screen, the digitizer MAY be okay still. If you open the phone up and check to see if there is a loose wire. If there is, reconnect it and then put the phone back together. If there is no lag after that then the digitizer will be fine, if there is lag then you will need to replace the digitizer as there is a fault in the wiring.
