Default Touchscreen not working

All of a sudden the Capacative touch screen on my X8 has started playing up. I cannot use any anything, i even have to remove the battery to restart the phone.

Once restarted it works for a while, then it will freeze again, I used the repair PC feature of PC Companion, worked for a while ( a couple of hours) then started to freeze again.

Any idea on what is causing this.

cheers

This does seem strange, I would suggest clearing out the contents of the memory card (first backup the data to a PC)

Menu > Settings > SD card & Storage > Format SD card/Erase SD card

After the above has been performed please download the Update Service and perform a re installation of the phones software.

Did as you suggested, but its still playing up... Was told by a Telco that the screen needs to be Calibrated because sometimes when you touch an icon it opens something else...

Is it possible to get this phone Calibrated..? or just bin it and get a new one. Which i'm loath to do as i quite like the xPeria.

cheers

O.K. i have Rooted the phone (SuperOneClick) and managed to install xrecovery, I had to pull the battery to re-boot, went into xrecovery...wiped the cache and did a full factory restore (full wipe), rebooted the phone...worked for a while then froze again

I waited for a couple of hours and tried the phone again and it worked (for a while)... It seems to me that the touch screen is the thing that is freezing it...If i leave the phone alone for a couple of hours then i can unlock it, but if i try to change any settings ( say sounds/display/wifi) it will freeze again.

Cheers
