    I have a iPhone 5 with iOS 7.1.1 install.

    Here what is happening randomly, I would say about every other day.

    When I wake the phone, I am unable to unlock the phone (swiping from left to right doesn't work).. it moves the screens, but for less than 1 cm.

    Up and down DO work, I'm able to go to the Notificaton center and the Control center.

    The only «*fix » is to shut down the phone off than On...

    My iPhone 5 is 1,5 years old, so out of warranty. I am eligible for the power button recall, but there is no issue with the power button.

    This is a new behaviour for my phone. Is it related to iOS 7.1.1 ?

    Anybody have the same problem than me ?:confused:

    Is it aftermarket LCDs or original apple?

    Open the iPhone and clean all 3 LCD connectors with alcohol and brush.

    Mine was doing that too. It's a strange bug for sure.

    Happened twice since i updated on the first day.

    I've ran into this a few times since upgrading to iOS 7 last year--so basically fairly rarely, and certainly not on any regular basis. Seems like there's some bug/glitch that's causing it, but given the very rare nature of it for me (and most) it's hard to figure out what might be causing it. In your case perhaps you might be able to figure it out, perhaps some notification and/or timing related to something.

    Actually, I'm not able figure why, or relate to something (notifications).

    It seems really random.

    Just ran into it myself again (it's been a while since I've seen it last time). No notifications had come in or anything like that, just went to unlock the phone and the passcode screen kind of froze as I swiped to it, right before it was going to blur the background behind it, because I could still see the wallpaper just fine and not blurred out essentially as is usually the case. After that trying to swipe to the passcode screen to unlock would only result in the lock screen moving right just a bit and bouncing back. Had to restart to get it back into working order.
