Overworking RAM/CPU ¶

Replace Glass Screen ¶

If the keyboard is unresponsive, try resetting the phone by turning the power off and back on. If the keyboard continues to be unresponsive, you will have to go to your settings and reset your phone to its default settings.

Power Button Unresponsive ¶

If you see any dirt in the membrane, use a small piece air compressor to remove the debris from the membrane.
