I have a broken-screen, non-rooted Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro that looks like this

and I'm experiencing a LOT of ghost touches (and the digitizer's gone).

I am using scrcpy to control it from my PC, so I want to disable the touchscreen because otherwise it interferes with my commands and does what it wants.

I don't want to detach the digitizer physically since I have no tools for opening my mobile and this one has to be opened from the screen, so I could damage it more.

How can I do it (possibly with ADB)?

So I fixed it the way it was suggested me by @rom1v scrcpy --turn-screen-off and works better than what I was expecting!

    Coming back later, this works for the Note 9 Pro as well. Just make sure it is unlocked when you run the command and don't touch it afterwards. Nov 3, 2023 at 7:32
