I have a HTC EVO 4G, which I got around 6 months ago.

Just recently, the lower half of my phone's screen has become almost completely unresponsive.

For instance, I wanted to allow the use of non-market apps. The confirmation screen that tells me that this could potentially be dangerous is not selectable because of the screen being non-responsive.

How can I fix this? Do I send it back to be repaired?

  • As a quick work-around to be able to e.g. confirm that popup you've mentioned: have your tried changing the screen orientation? Turning the device upside-down might enable you to do so, as then the upper half is the "broken one". As for the fact itself: I'd say you'll have to turn it in for repair. Sounds like a hardware issue to me.

Your digitizer probably failed. That is the glass piece you touch with your finger. On some models it can be replaced, although not something for the faint of heart. I have had to do this for my EVO 3D.
