since you have done a hard reset already, the issue is hardware, the touch screen (Digitizer) on top of the LCD display is faulty and would need to be replaced.

In some cases you will need to replace the whole screen as the touchscreen can not be separated from the display.

I've previously written a guide on how to replace a screen / digitizer on a similar type handheld device :

In your case, the screen and the digitizer will either be part of the same connector, or possibly separate as on the linked page.

I can probably find a service manual for your phone to get a exact answer. But Most likely, you need to replace either the whole screen or then just the digitizer part of it.

A official replacement part and repair service will cost you 100-200. You can get a replacement screen and or digitizer from ebay for 5 to 40 $

    Not really?! You simply can NOT repair such a screen, it needs to be replaced, and well, I wouldn't have spend the money on a new phone as repairing the old one yourself would have been much cheaper. Oh well, that is your problem.

    Good luck.

We're is the LCD located in my phone

One of the iPhone's greatest features is its highly intuitive touch screen.
Unlike other electronic device touch screens, your iPhone doesn't operate using the blockage of light to decipher which keys and commands you're pressing.
This makes it a viable choice for cell phone users who may not be able to complete other types of commands.
While you cannot alter the sensitivity of your iPhone, you can toggle certain features that make your phone easier to use.
How It Works

The key to understanding the sensitivity level of your iPhone's touch screen is first understanding how the touch screen actually works.
Instead of detecting light blockages or heat to interpret your finger's movements, the iPhone actually has a grid that lies underneath the surface of the touch screen.
When your finger touches the screen, electrical impulses detect the area on the grid that you're touching to interpret the letter, command or motion you're making to issue the correct response.
Screen Sensitivity
While previous models of the iPhone did offer the ability to change the screen sensitivity and the speed by which your phone responds to commands, the iPhones 4 and 4S no longer offer the option.
Instead, the touch sensitivity on newer phones is automatically calibrated for the fastest speeds, which means your phone responds quickly to your touch.
If this frustrates you and results in commands and calls you didn't mean to make, locking the screen by pressing the button on the top right-hand rim of the phone helps stop unwanted commands.
Assistive Touch
Update iPhones running on iOS 5 with an option known as "AssistiveTouch," which allows users who may not have complete control over their bodies and motions to use the iPhone.
This program allows you to change the speed at which the phone responds to your touch.
By tapping the "General" icon, then touching "Accessibility" and "AssistiveTouch," you'll enter the assistive touch menu.
When you turn on the option, an overlay appears on the screen that allows you to give commands by touch, rather than by shaking, swiping or pinching the screen.

When setting up AssistiveTouch, you'll have the opportunity to select your command tracking speed, which deals with how sensitive your iPhone is to your various gestures and custom commands.
Case Issues
Your touch screen isn't the only place where your phone is sensitive to movements.
Your iPhone has a feature called a proximity sensor.
The role of the proximity sensor is to sense the closeness of your face during a phone call. When the phone senses that your face is close to the phone, it locks your screen to prevent you from accidentally activating the touch screen with your cheek or ear.
This is handy, except when the proximity sensor is partially obscured by a case and is no longer sensitive to the position of your face.
The proximity sensor is found on the upper right-hand corner of your screen, so ensure that it remains uncovered to preserve its sensitivity.

1 Answer My HTC HD .screen does not exept any comands when you tap on it

Mine did that and advise given to me was to check that there is no dust under the plastic screen protector (assuming you have put one on your phone) Even the tiniest piece of dust will make the phone think you are attempting a command and therefore wont accept another command at the same time. It was suggested to me that I use a pin or slim credit card and run it around the outer edge of the screen. I was stunned when it fixed it immediately. I thought the idea sounded stupid. There you go!

Touch screen not responding to any commands

I tried the 2 solutions i was given but it still didn't fix the problem, I ended up calling logitech tech support and they advised me to install the software and download new programs for the remote, after about 1/2 hour and recalibrating the complete software/ firmware the problem was fixed.
