iPhone 5 touchscreen won't respond until lock button pressed.

Got a wierd problem.  I replaced a cracked display in my wife's iPhone 5 and now the touchscreen is having issues.  It happens like this:

 

1. Hit the home button, lock/unlock button or a call comes in

2. touchscreen doesn't respond

3. hit the lock/unlock button to lock the phone

4. hit home button or lock/unlock again

5. touchscreen works perfectly now

 

Happens every single time.  With or without case.  I was wondering if it might be a grounding issue, but not sure how to fix it.  What's the deal?

Bummer.  Try asking at http://www.ifixit.com or some place similar.

 

The iPhone is not considered user servicable. Apple does not sell iPhone parts. There are no legitimate sources for iPhone parts.

 

Now that you opened it yourself, Apple won't touch it in or out of warranty.
