    Someone here might know if this is fixable.

    But yes I dropped my phone a while back and lost it for a night. It's an LG viewty KU990. When I got it back the next day it seemed to be working perfectly, except since it was a wet morning the camera lens looked like it was screwed forever, I'm not sure if it is but that isn't what I'm worried about too much.

    I was using it for a few mins without a hitch (touchscreen working perfect) and when I set it down it shut off. The battery wasn't nearly empty so that wasn't the problem. When I switched it on it wouldn't recognise any touch input. All other input and the display seems to be perfect, but there's obviously nothing I can do with the phone if the touchscreen is broke.

    Any ideas if this could be fixed? I'm not sure what caused it, it could be: wetness, being dropped one too many times, or coldness (cold moist morning)?

    Weird that it just suddenly gave up. Any insight appreciated.
