    This happens every so often. It has been a while since I've had this problem until now. It seems like it stays unresponsive for a lot longer than before and rebooting it doesn't help at all, it just starts working again when it feels like it and when it does start to come around it's really glitchy like it wants to move but it gives up and then it starts working like normal. I don't know what sets it off, I have noticed it doesn't seem to matter if it's fully charged or almost dead or if it has been used a lot or not much and it has been running different ROMs. I did a forum search but didn't really come up with anything for this. Could there be a quick way to get it to work again? I can't even answer the phone or unlock the screen because nothing moves at all but if it's the same as before it'll start working again, I just hope sooner than later! If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.

    This is a bug found in the 2.3 gingerbread update. For some reason it doesn't always like to wakeup from sleep. Unfortunitally there is no real fix except rolling back to 2.2 froyo.

    I'm on Android 2.2, kernel 2.6.32.17 etc, and the touch screen still doesn't work, from time to time. Rebooting (if I'm lucky enough to be able to power it off!) works to clear it. Although, for example, I just did that, and while touch screen works in most places, I can't scroll down the advice bar at the top to display incoming messages / emails / alerts etc, and touching menu options sometimes takes a couple of goes. I have an HTC Legend. Any other ideas? Thanks.

    I have the same problem... The screen will just randomly stop responding to my touch. However, holding down the on/off button until it reboots seems to fix it for me....

    My phone was working fine. I hung up a call and two seconds later tried to unlock my phone to read a text and my touch screen was not responding. I tried rebooting multiple times. I cannot unlock my phone or use any of my phone functions besides turning it on or off. Is there a fix for this?

    Just put a little bit drop of screen cleaner (or water) on the icon where you open your device then swipe. It worked for me.

    Before anyone tries the Factory Reset option, try the "wipe cache partition" option on the Android Recovery Software page. This worked for me, but NOBODY recommended that as a fix. My screen suddenly stopped responding and I honestly tried every single recommendation I saw online. Nothing worked, including the hardware fixes. So before I tried the factory reset, I decided I had nothing to lose by trying the wipe cache partition option, on my S3. It WORKED !

    when i unlocked the screen it says that i have to install new updates and so i did it. after the updates it automatically rebooted, and re started thereafter but the process is very slow.and when the screen locks appeared i tried to unlock it but the screen is unresponsive and it just shut off and re start again on its own repeating the same thing over and over again but so futile...

    Last night I got on the phone with my dad. After that I took a bath. When I got out it wasn't working. I did not get water on it but after my bat, my phone screen stopped responding. I put it in rice just to make sure and it sat in there all night, I wake up, it is still not working. What do I do? Yesterday was my birthday so naturally I was on my phone all day. Could that have something to do with it?

    I have a Verizon LG 4G, and I love this phone. I could not get the touch screen to function for about an hour. I tried taking the battery out (Shutdown/Shutdown Restart not functional) several times, and the touch screen still would not respond. On my last attempt to restart the phone I placed my entire right hand on the screen and made an upward swipe very quickly followed by 2 finger swipe (the motions/swipes were simultaneous motion).

    This forum came up in a search for a frozen screen for an LG Gpad F 7.0. After nothing worked, I held down the volume up/down buttons (both) while holding down the power button. It went to the LG boot screen. I also held down the power button after that...as I wasn't sure if it was doing anything. It rebooted, and the device works fine now.
