Is your touchscreen not working on Android?
There are lots of reasons for a touch screen not working on Android and a lot of them might be an easy fix! Here are actionable steps you can take to try to troubleshoot!
1. Always Try Restarting Android Device First:
Before rushing into any other troubleshooting procedure, restart your Android phone or tablet to fix software glitches that may prevent the screen from functioning. To restart android device with touch screen not working:
Press and hold the power button until the screen becomes black. After 1 minute or so, hold the power button again to power on the device. In many cases, the touch screen will respond normally after the device reboots.
2. Make Sure Your Android Devices Software Is Up To Date:
3. Remove Memory Card & SIM Card
Sometimes, faulty memory card or SIM card should take the blame. To try and check if this is the case, power off your device (keep holding power button if the screen is totally unresponsive), remove back cover of your Android device and take off memory & SIM card and then reboot the device and see if the problem is gone.
4. Make Sure That The Device Is Charged!
When any electronic device is super low on charge it can start to act very wonky! This is a good easy fix that also doesn't require much time.
5. Put Device in Safe Mode
Corrupted or troublesome third-party apps could also cause touch screen problem on Android phone or tablet. Under the safe mode, all third-party apps that you download will be disabled. So if the touch screen works well in safe mode, then you should uninstall some of the third-party apps, especially those that were installed recently before the touch screen problem starts.
