I have had the tablet for 24 hours and am running stock ROM 4.1.1. I have so far experienced three issues with the touch screen becoming unresponsive. Cut the rope was unplayable, widget resize on home screen was not possible as holds were not registered correctly

Tab was not on charge but there were quite a few apps running.

In every occasion this was fixed by a restart and normal service resumed.

I suspect this is a jelly bean issue as if it was hardware it would not be resolved by reboot.

Anyone else seen this?

Rushed to market perhaps.......

I appear to have the wobbly screen issue. On left hand side the screen pops up by a couple of mm above the frame, you can push it back down but it just pops up again after a few seconds and makes a click. Do not want to pull apart and try the diy fix.

I spent 40 min on help line and gave up waiting, Will try again tonight.....

I have that issue, but it appears more pronounced with Modaco's ROM. I switched to the alpha version of CM10 unofficial nightlies, and it seems to be a lot better now, which suggests a software calibration issue?? Hmmm

My girlfriends has this issue, and I'm prepared to put money on it being a software issue, possibly in the drivers? With hers, simply putting it to sleep and waking it fixes it. Now for the life of me I cannot think of any possible hardware fault that magically fixes by sleeping and immediately waking the device.

Got hold of Google on Monday about screen wobble and they despatched new nexus 16gb to me yesterday. Just have to workout how to backup all my apps before I return to old one.

I have a slightly different touch screen issue.

My screen is registering something touching it in the location where the blue dot is on the attached file. After the tablet kept launching programs by its self I installed touch test to see what was happening.

I Stopped touching the screen and 1 point flicked back to the location there. Any ideas or is it back for replacement.

I am currently running MCR Jr5.

mine needs a reboot to fix, upgrading to JR6 now. Don't remember it doing it whilst stock though.
Also perhaps when I do a reboot I clean the screen. Its not dirty at all but seems to fix things as well! Maybe its not the clean but multiple touch points or maybe just likes being rubbed against my leg. Anyhow wrote this reply with no problem on Jr6 now.

I have occasional none response to touches but I am running Stock ( not rooted yet). This I believe is an issue with the tablets and not ROMS

I have since had my Nexus replaced due to the continuing screen issues.

So far so good with the new device.
