I have Samsung Galaxy Mega, touch screen has stopped working unable to unlock or anything else ? please advise
Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question! We might be able to resolve this by performing a hard reset of the phone. This would erase all of the data on the phone though. Do you know if you have a backup of the data ? (IE contacts, photos, etc.)

how do I turn off press power button and goes to screen for power off , airplane mode etc cannot do that touch screen not functioning tried taking battery out and leaving for a minute or then press volume and power as detailed brings up logo and them back to main access screen again do I leave sim card in or out ?
You can leave the sim card in, so you are unable to actually turn the device completely off ?
You should be able to power off by just continuing to hold the power button without using the touch screen

I turn off by holding power button screen goes blank, then Press and hold Volume up and Power buttons until the Samsung logo appears on the screen., what appears on screen is the samsung galaxy title with open padlock word custom , then goes to logo and if I try holding volume button down it goes to main screen and I am back to square one
Try to tap volume up?
