  • I have another problem. Sometimes when I the screen gets locked or I locked the screen the light automatically turns on. And it happens almost 10 times. Whenever the screen light gets off within a fraction of a second the screen light turns on. Please help

    I have a similar problem, the display becomes insensitive to pressing and the phone can not be used until you lock and unlock the screen.
    Sorry for my English
  • I had the same problem they told me It would probably be an update issue or something like that, my phone seemed to go crazy, It didn't stop going back and forward, the bluetooth turned on and off, It took me about 5 minutes to be able to turn down the Phone, It barely reacted to my touch, It kinda scared me, once I turned on my phone the problem has disappeared apparently

    I have been having the same problem - the phone keeps going to sleep and then waking up. I think that it may be caused by grease from the fingers on the Fingerprint sensor/Home button. When it happened again today I wiped the fingerprint sensor/home button and the phone went back to normal. So hopefully I have worked out what the problem is, but what can be done about it long term - I don't want to have to keep wiping the button - what if I am away from home and don't have anything to wipe the button with?

  • I think it's software issue
  • Is it possible to claim my set from company ??? I face the ghost touch issue...

    I have also discovered this problem recently. Whatever app I run, it closes by itself. Literally like there's some ghost pressing back button all the time. 
    So I thought a's happening only when I'm outside, never on Wi-Fi.
    Switching to 3G solved a problem. Also, battery life is significantly improved since I don't use 4G.

    Hey i have a Nokia 3.1 plus. I came to know that many of these devices have a ghost touch problem. I observed that this problem happens more on a humid day. I am not sure but i think there is a relation. And also any update couldn't fix this problem. Can anyone tell any fix for this weird issue?
  • Heey i have same problem and i changed the screen 
  • Its just a source of charge imbalance. It can happen due to some dirt which canconduct electricity or water droplets. Sometimes wrong voltage supply through the charger also makes the display malfunction. Any source of charge disturbance leads to ghost touch.

    Guys I think I found the cause and the solution.

    It started happening to my 6.1 Plus almost 1 yr after the purchase date. After lot of charger/charging cable replacement I came to the conclusion that it has to do something about some charge imbalance on the screen.

    Now, I tried to fix it with different approaches i.e. replace charger, change cable even used USB vs wall charger but in vain.

    After thinking about it for a while, I thought that the charge is never getting released from the phone and hence the problem.

    One day I tried by placing my finger at the charging port at the bottom and voila the ghost touch was gone. I did this a couple of times after that and the trick worked every time.

    I think the charge just needs to be neutralized and the human body provides some kind of earthing effect or I don't know.

    Anyhow, thought I would share this with you. Maybe if you have a better solution, I would be glad to hear.

  • Iam also facing the problem in nokia 6.1plus after update the mobile in android 10 what's the problem and how to solve it give the best solutiin

    I am also facing the issue of ghost touch. I was doing my work, minding my own business but all of a sudden the screen completely overreacts; notification trays come down and the screen shows random touches. The f*** That was completely unexpected. Nokia seemed to show one issue after another after the Android 10 update. It is disappointing. I am utterly and significantly disappointed.

    Greetings guys,

    I have the same problem (Nokia 6.1 plus) and it's really annoying. I have searched for a solution or a fix for a long time but I found nothing, until TODAY. Appearantly, there is a bug in the default launcher. Try and install a third party launcher from Play store and make it as the default launcher.

    So far for me, the ghost has disappeared after changing the launcher. Hopefully it works for you too.

    Hit (Agree) button if this got your problem fixed so everyone can see

    P.S. the credit for this fix goes to a smart guy (Devil2Death) who replied the fix on Nokia 7 plus review on GSMARENA site.
