Need help: touchscreen sometimes suddenly stops working.

Postby Pigfisher » 07 Feb 2017, 17:35

HI,

My tablet has the problem that the touchscreen sometimes stops working since I installed thors 5.1 CM rom.
The weird thing is that it when it stops working it sometimes reacts to touches after around 1 minute or more after the touch.

When the touchscreen stops working i have to turn off the tablet for about an hour to get it to work again. (even if i go into recovery )

does anyone know a possible cause/fix or is this just my tablet dying( :( )?

try it in safe mode
backup the rom do a fresh install of a different rom
troubleshoot it don't just rely on someone else possibly having a similar problem as it doesn't mean you have the same problem
there are settings in Settings to show touches visually as well
Troubleshoot and exercise the old gray matter
