Default Notification area swipedown not working

Hi

I had reception issues on my Legend so vodafone sent me a new (well, pre-owned/refurbished) one today. I haven't had it long enough to test the reception issues but I am unable to bring the notification area at the top of the screen down by swiping my finger. I can click 'menu>notifications' from the homescreen and that brings it up but I can't swipe it down - most odd. Although I have seen it come down about 30 seconds after I swipe it on occasion. This was the case with the old firmware and still is with the new. I've done soft and hard resets and it's still the case. Everything else on the phone works perfectly as far as I can see.

I called Vodafone who told me to call HTC. They were most perplexed and suggested vodafone send me another unit.

Any ideas though?!

EDIT: actually the notification area now seems to now be stuck - every time I click on anything it comes down. FFS.

I've not seen this myself but seem to recall that I may have seen something about notification window when you change launcher applications.

Have any of you installed alternative launchers? OR have you got refurbished phones that have perhaps done that?

The only other thing that occurs is whether the Display settings have been changed? There is an option for animations and if that has been set to show none, maybe the swipe is classified as an animation? (stab in the dark i know but just a thought)

Cheers

still no solution to that problem, I guess?
I was thinking whether a screen replacement would serve. but most of the times the screen works fine, so it is maybe more of a software problem. reinstalling doesn't help.
So any more ideas about it?

cheers

I'm having this problem (notification screen won't swipe down) too.
But also, the touch screen doesn't always work. usually as soon as I power it on its ok, within about 5 minutes it just doesn't respond, or takes many times to make it work. And then sometimes, what ever I type on the keyboard image results in the ... notification screen dropping down. Or sometimes what ever I type, Qq appears!
Is getting a new screen the answer?
(I've tried factory resets - hard and soft, new battery, emptying the data store . . . nothing has worked so far.)
Mine is 2.5 years old. Repair or throw away?

I am having the same problem on a quite new Galaxy S4 running Android v4.2.2. I also get occassional screen freezes and delayed touches. The notification slide down works fine in landscape however. Very frustrating. At times it makes the phone completely unusable.

I had installed other launcher applications, but have since uninstalled them to no avail. I will try taking it back to the store and see what they say about it.
