I have had a rooted (with NookManager) Nook Simple Touch that worked perfectly until I went travelling across tropical countries. Since then, I have seen a progressive degradation of the touchscreen, specifically I noted the following:
- Buttons/icons in the lower half of the screen, when tapped, do no respond. Instead, buttons/icons directly above them (on the upper part of the screen) do respond to the action.
When the keyboard is active and letters are tapped, you get one of these random behaviours:
- the letter appears on the screen, but 2 or 3 of them, even if the letter is tapped once.
- the letter above the one tapped, appears on screen: e.g. I press "q" and "a" appears on screen; I press "backspace" and the letter "p" appears on screen.
Following the recommendations of many forums, I cleaned thoroughly my screen, however this does not seem to resolve the problem. I also performed a factory reset and re-root, still the problem persists (though, after a new factory reset, the erratic behaviour is less frequent).
The only thing that changed is the fact that I am now travelling in hotter countries and maybe the Nook is sensitive to temperatures constantly above 30C.
Has anyone experienced similar problems?
