Samsung S3 Screen not responding

My touch screen will not allow me to put in any password (or respond to anything). I tried doing the taking out the battery and waiting a few minutes...didn't work. I did the factory reset...didn't work. I really hope its not time for a replacement because this phone was really expensive and should not require a replacement so soon (less than a year and a half).

Re: Samsung S3 Screen not responding

Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, the touchscreen/digitizer is one of the more common components to fail. It can happen spontaneously, but it also happens after some relatively minor trauma (like dropping from waist height to a carpeted floor). You probably need to bring it to a repair shop for an estimate.

I don't know for sure, but I've heard the cost of screen replacements range from $75 to $150, depending on where you go.
