Hi, the screen on the S3 is working absolutely fine. However, when I click on the lock button, it doesn't lock the screen. The home button also does nothing unless I continuously keep pressing on it and it just takes me to the apps that were opened.The back button and the setting buttons are working fine. I haven't installed anything on here besides games from the store and from the automatic updates. Please help me on this.

Welcome to Android Central! What do you mean by the lock button? Are you referring to the power button? Do you want the phone to lock immediately after hitting the power button? Try going to Settings/Security/Automatically lock, and select "Immediately." This is how it works for my Razr Maxx--it might be a little different for the S3.

When you say the home button does nothing, do you mean no matter what you're doing? So for example, if you're using the browser and then hit the home button, nothing happens?
