    Atrix screen issues. What to replace

    Half the time my phone is unusable now. Typing is impossible thanks to the touch screen constantly glitching. I've ruled out it isn't software related, and is most definitely hardware. Now my question is would it be the digitizer that needs replacing or the lcd? Nothing is cracked, phone was never dropped etc.Thanks everyone!

    Why not have Motorola replace the entire phone?

    Its very inconsistent but more often then not the letter q keeps popping up while im typing. Ill backspace it but it'll do the letter q while i backpack. Its almost asthough someone keeps tapping q while i type. And when I open the multitouch app something randomly taps the top left corner.So would this be a digitizer issue or a lcd issue? Nothing on the screen is damaged. In fact its been in a otterbox case since day 1.

    What keyboard are you using? Or maybe is the heard dictionary related. Firmly tried to clear the cache on it? You can also try other keyboards.

    Most definitely cannot be the keyboard. I have wiped the phone back to stockish (Im unlocked and on ORFR2.3.4). Tried different kernals, had the phone cherryncrust/alien/cherry rom, flashed the radio, etc. etc. Its funny cause it seems like its working fine, then all of a sudden it will start up again. So I thought maybe its because of the OC kernal making the phone too hot so I installed the original kernal and it would randomly start again. Like this morning for instance. I just wanted to check the weather and see if were going to get any winds here from the hurricane and I couldnt even scroll the screen. It would keep jumping back and forth. So I was stuck using the Galaxsy S2. Which, by the way, I strongly dislike. Reasons why for another day lol.

    So I ended up going on XDA website and seen someone start a thread with the same issue as me. One member mentioned to try Touchscreen booster from the market. Although the app clearly says its designed for the SG and SG2, I installed it and everything seems to be working (so far.. )
    If the problem persists, is the digitizer that needs to be replaced? Is that the hardware that recognized the touch? Or is it the LCD....
    Anyways, thanks to all those who have tried to help so far. Much appreciated
    . (this last part is not supposed to be in bold... cant get it out of bold. Im not yelling, freaking out or swearing behind the keyboard. Just so y'all know . )

    Erratic ATRIX touchscreen

    How did you fix your problem? My ATRIX acts like someone is touching the touchscreen even though no one is. I traced the problem to the top left screen corner. When this starts to happen I try to pry the touchscreen up a little and the problem goes away. Ut is like pressure builds up in thecorner. Any suggestions for me?

    That seems like hardware problem to me. If you still on the 30 days trial, I would return for a new one. If you are past that, then you will have to contact Moto for service.
