All of a sudden with out touching the screen my phone works on its own like moving between screens. If I touch on one option it may navigate to some other. It happens very rarely, but it's impacting my ability to use the phone. Can any one suggest a solution?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you have an HTC Desire or HTC MyTouch? The tags say one thing but your title (seems) to say something else. – Al E. Sep 15 '11 at 12:42

It might be a digitizer problem, you should take it to a warranty. Usually problems like that can be cause of a digitizer issue.

this started to happen after i downloaded an app from the market. prior to that it was great. but after downloading that app all the heck started. anyways I have uninstalled that app but i did not get rid of the problem completely as it was peeping in sometime or the other.. but rare.. – yrksundeep Sep 15 '11 at 11:07
@yrksundeep: Have you done the usual quick steps? Cleared the data of the app, restarted the phone, etc.? Have you considered a factory reset? That said, I think Reigo is probably right that it's a hardware problem. That it happened right after you installed an app is probably coincidental. – Al E. Sep 15 '11 at 12:41
@Al Everett: If you say that it is a hardware problem... I am confused whether it would get set or not... Can some one plz elaborate the problem at which part it is ocured. – user8114 Sep 19 '11 at 7:06
I don't know what the heck you're trying to say. If it's a hardware problem, you need to get the store you bought it from to replace it; we're not going to be able to help you. – Al E. Sep 19 '11 at 13:00
