Prevent/Fix Touchscreen dead zones
A 5mm vertical row of my FP2 touchscreen doesn`t respond to touch Inputs.
-You should try to avoid tensional stress of the phone (eg. phone in pocket while cycling).
-Also heat could have caused this problem, which my phone was exposed to when the problem occured.
I heard that the problem could be (temporarily) fixed using an electrostatic discharge from a lighter igniter.
Why should this work? Is it influencing the static potential of that area, since it is a capacitive touchscreen?
Has anyone damaged his phone due to the high Voltage and electric field?
Are there other solutions without replacing the whole screen?
Questa è una buona domanda?
Have the same exact problem but mine is about 1 and a half inch for about 7 months now
I tried the lighter hack and it doesn't work

I have the same problem as Michael, about 10mm up the right hand side. It deteriorated over a period of months. I cleaned the inside thoroughly, and this induced the dead strip to work for about a further week, but now I cannot revive. Fairphone advise getting a new display module, so unless I can get it going, I think this is the only way.
