Unhappy Weird touch screen issue Please Help.

I think it may be the digitizer but its bloody annoying!!

Okay so the phones been perfect until like a 2 months ago when it starting going all weird the touch screen began be unresponsive and whenever I touch the phone the menu pops up. So I left it for a week then restored to factory settings and voila perfect, now... after 5 weeks of near perfect use its playing up again and ill describe it...

Its like the touch screen is being constantly pressed on the right side of the phone and it makes using the phone near impossible, but the alarm the music the internet all still work its just the touch screen. I cant calibrate it and entering the pass-pattern is very hard and the phone seems to be constantly being pressed.

So is this a digitizer problem or is it something else ? please help thanks.

P.S. I think it is worth mentioning that My phone has water damage around march however Its now the problems are appearing so its unlikely to be linked.

Is it even worth dishing out 20-30 repairing a gt540 its a good phone but I doubt any repairs will last.

Has there been any form of impact on the right side of the screen? because the screen works with 2 layers, and when you press anywhere, the 2 layers touch, which allows the screen to know where you pressed.

If some form of impact damaged the screen it could seem like it is being constantly pressed, or there is a possibility that the water is between the layers and is shorting somthing in the screen but I think the first possibility is the most probable.

I believe if you dont want another phone and you want the GT540 then a repair would be the best, just make sure you use a reputable repair shop and it will be fine.
