I've seen the digitizer ribbon sliced through by a broken port cover.
This is repairable with a bit of careful soldering.
I wonder if the little cushion that presses the contacts against the
logic board may harden over time?
Maybe the system is perplexed and needs a brainwipe and restore.

Good luck

  Keep your wonderful site up.
