Xperia play Touch screen problem

Hi guys i need some help.

i trapped my phone in my car door and smahed all the front of it. i got a new touch screen and replaced it and all seemed to be working fine for a few days then the touch screen wouldnt respond, if i slide the keypad out i can use that but there seems to be a blue square that is round the buttons when i slide the pad out.

ive tried taking it apart again incase of any loose connections but same problem when i turn it on, have also tried restoring firmware but still having same problem.

any ideas what it could be?

any help would be appriciated.

it might be a faulty touchscreen or one of the ribbons might be loose or broken

Re: Xperia play Touch screen problem

ok thanks will give that a try then.

any idea tho why it will let me navigate to and use all apps through the keypad but if i go to send a text message it just stays on the box where the message would appear and not let me navigate to the letters?

thanks again

I would double check the ribbons, sometimes they seemed to be connected properly but they aren't
