Thinkpad Yoga 260 Ghost Touches

Recently I have been experiencing erratic behaviour with my touchscreen. Randomly the cursor would move to the top right corner due to a ghost touch on the screen. Any suggestions on how to fix this or is this an RMA issue?

It sounds like the digitizer (glass in front of the screen) is failing.  Do you still have warranty remaining?

I am also experiencing this issue.

BIOS and firmware up to date.

 

I'm assuming its an issue with the digitiser.

Does anyone have a rough idea how much it would cost to repair/replace?

 

My machine is out of warranty.

 

Thanks

Re: Thinkpad Yoga 260 Ghost Touches

I am having same problem and on the same right hand side of the screen. Therefore, It appears the problem is widespread and perhaps related manufacturing. Yet there is no official reply from lenovo officials. It was not expected from the yoga brand. I am going to leave bad review and take up the social media for an explanation.

I am having the same issue too on the left 1/3 of the screen. 

 

Disabling the HID works to disable the touchscreen and the pen still works (guess this means the digitizer) is working

 

BIOS and all drivers are up to date

 

Anyone have any other ideas? or is this a hardware fault.

Same issue here. And windows start keeps popping because of this. The temporary solution found is reboot machine.
