    Exclamation Please Help! Galaxy S2 Pattern Lock screen wont respond to my touch.

    Hi,

    Well firstly i dropped my Galaxy S2 in water for like 2-3 seconds. After that i the phone screen was red in colour. I removed the battery and sim card and put the phone in rice for a day. Now the screen is back to its normal avatar, but after i restart my phone it shows the Pattern Screen Lock. Now here is the problem, the screen just wont register my touch. i cant make any pattern on it to unlock it. I can use the Back button and Home Buttons, but nothing on the screen.

    Please help me in dealing with this issue. Its a brand new Galaxy S2.. 3 days old .

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you have Samsung Kies on your PC? Can you boot into recovery mode?

    Have you made a backup in Kies?

    I would do that, but Kies asks me to first unlock the device. It says "The connected device is locked. Please enter password on the connected device." :|

    No. The only way that I know how to get passed the lock screen is by wiping the phone in recovery.

    No, it won't void your warranty. All it does is reset the phone to a factory shipped status.

    Press and hold volume up+home+power until the phone reboots. Then navigate with your volume keys and select the wipe. Selections are made with the home button or a quick click of the power button.

    It should say something like Recovery <3re> if you have entered recovery mode properly.
