How to fix ghost touch on Android

Ghost touch is another deadly screen problem you can experience on Android. It could even be more frustrating and unreal, compared to a physically broken screen. If your touchscreen is automatically operating itself - maybe random touches or some parts of the screen, you're not alone. Hopefully, this article will guide you on how to fix this embarrassing  'ghost touch' problem and you can control your phone again.

But first, what does Ghost Touch mean on Android?

You probably have experienced it when you charge your phone. It occurs when your phone operates itself and responding to some touches you're not actually. It could be a random touch, a part of the screen, or some parts of the screen becomes frozen.

The reasons behind the Android ghost touch problem

I'm about to show you how to fix the Android ghost touch problem. But do you know what caused it? Ghost Touch is usually not a software problem. If you're experiencing it, it's arguably a problem from the hardware - perhaps the screen itself.

1.Poor charging cable or charger.

This is by far the most reported cause of ghost touch. If you notice your phone started tapping itself when you plug in your charger, then the charger is perhaps at fault. Perhaps the charger is not compatible with your device, or it's a poorly made charger.

2. Faulty software updates.

Though, this problem is rarely caused by a software issue. Still, a wrong code in the software may freeze some parts of your screen or makes it start random touches.

3. Extremely cold weather or overheating

For the screen to function properly, the phone needs to be in a temperate environment. You may experience a ghost touch if the device is freezing or overeating. Now, the ghost touch reaction might not be aggressive, but it will affect some part of the screen.

4. Bad Screen Protector.

You might also encounter ghost touch on your phone if you have a bad screen guard - mainly if it's not attached firmly to the screen, or if there are particles between the screen and the protector.



How to fix the ghost touch problem on your phone

When you now know the causes of ghost touch on Android, here are the best ways to fix it on your own.

1. Use a high-quality charger

First, if you only experience ghost touch on your phone while charging it, the best thing you could do is get another charger that is compatible with your phone. If you still have the charger bundled with your phone, we recommend you use it instead. Otherwise, simply get a new charger from a reputable company or your brand's official store.

2. Keep the screen clean.

The screen relies on the contact between your finger and the touchpad to execute any action. This also applies when the screen has foreign particles - maybe from dirty fingers or dust from the environment. In this case, keep your phone screen clean to get rid of Android ghost touch problem.

It's easy to do, just turn off the screen, get clean wipes (or soft cloth), then gently wipe over the screen. Do not scratch the screen with sharp objects.

Also, you might run into ghost touches if your screen is cracked/scratched. So ensure to keep the phone safe from scratches.

3. Take breaks between screen usages.

To fix/avoid ghost touches on your phone, you also need to keep the phone in normal temperature and always remember to take breaks between screen usages, especially when the phone gets hot. Also, endeavor not to use the phone under hot temperatures - under direct sunlight, etc.

4. Replace the phone screen

This still matters. If your screen couldn't heal from ghost touch, it could be a call to replace the screen. Perhaps the screen is getting weak, water got inside it, or it was replaced with a bad screen component. All you need to do is find a competent engineer around you and fix the screen - usually the official service centre for your phone.
