“I dropped my phone earlier but it was working fine but now my Android phone touch does not work, I need some important photos for work but the touch screen is not working, how to recover pictures from unresponsive phone?”

Smartphones are very sensitive devices especially their touch screens; one single mistake and it can cost you big time. Usually, we experience mistakenly deleting files because of touch screen hypersensitivity. Unresponsiveness or freezing screens are mostly the common issues being experienced.

Part 1. How to Fix Android Touch Screen Not Working Issue

If ever your Android phone touch does not work and there are no physical damages can be seen then you can try the following fixes:

  1. Restart the Device

A simple power cycle can do great whenever you are experiencing touchscreen problems. First, you can turn off the device, take the battery out and after few seconds put everything back in and turn on the Android phone.

  1. Remove SIM/SD card

If after power cycling the device still doesn’t respond to touch then try turning off again and take out the SIM and the SD card. Leave everything out for about two minutes and insert them back and power on the Android device.

  1. Put Android device into Safe mode

Android phone touch does not work can be caused by different issues. One of the most common is using third-party apps that may have crashed or become corrupted that is why your phone does not respond to touch at all. In order to determine if this is really caused by other apps, you can enter into safe mode and if the touch screen is working well then you need to report the app that is causing the issue or you can uninstall it.

  • Turn off the Android device
  • Press and hold the power button until you see the Brand logo
  • When you see the brand logo booting up, release the Power button and press the Volume Down
  • When you see that the Android device has booted in Safe Mode, release the Volume down

You can also enter Safe mode using another way:

  • Hold the Power button until the power menu appears
  • Press and hold the Power Off option
  • Tap ‘OK’ when you see the Reboot to Safe Mode screen
