I didn't add the touch element, the panel was sold as a touchscreen. But you can clearly see that the touch element is added afterwards and not at the factory whoever made the screen itself.
And yes I've tried the touch screen sitting freely there. Don't think the cable is the problem and dont even know if it matters at all which way it's plugged as they're just resistors and before any calibration it acts all mixed up anyway.
And I found strange thing:
If I touch the screen VERY gently the pointer tries to jump to that place where it always stucks. Repeatedly touching the panel gently, the pointer will jump at the edge, always precisely at the same point.
Check the 5meg WMV video here:
In the video the lcd is out of the casing and touch element sitting on it freely.
