    When you got it repaired, did they replace the WHOLE display unit or just the glass?
    Sounds like the digitizer is damaged. Thats the layer between the glass and the display that detects touch. It was probably the person who repaired it that broke it :thumbup:

    Yeah it must have been the whole thing. Was it a proper samsung repair centre or just some random place?
    Problems with the screen are kinda hard to diagnose. Im hoping it was a certified repair place? You can replace the digitizer but i think its quite an awkward messy job. Not something id like to attempt anyway

    Well it would be a waste if i just throw away the one it has now since its supposed to be new and i got no momey for another one :( also i know i can fix it well i think i guess there is no harm in trying i already opened completly to the motherboard to see if it had something inside, didnt seem to have anything but i cleaned it everywhere nust incase also there are some yellow like clips dont know how to call them dont know if they are supposed to make contact to the motherboard or the case since the plastic have some square metal in it, like i said i want to try everything before buying another and from what i think it was a random place whe it got fixed
