I had a LG Nexus 5 running Android in developer mode with the "Show touches" option enabled. Suddenly, while holding the phone steadily in my hand, the device registered tons of touches in the top of the screen, and I decided to turn it off immediately.
Now, after a reboot, the touch screen does not respond at all (not true; very rarely responds in a weird manner, that I can not reproduce). Everything else is working: volume buttons and power button.
I have tried the following:
- Rebooting (obviously)
- Restoring to factory settings (which is why I am now stuck on the "Select language"-screen in setup)
- Clearing phone cache
- Clearing the sim tray (has always been empty, but I tried ejecting and taking back in)
I always updated the software to the newest version available.
I have not yet tried pulling the battery out and in again.
I have now tried pulling out the battery and re-inserting without any luck. I also installed Kitkat (version 4.0 from https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images). Still no response.
