How can I unlock my phone is it ruined or fixable?

I have Samsung Galaxy S4 i545 from Verizon that I used the remote lock on Android Device Manager and it worked when I went to unlock it one time; then the next morning I couldn't unlock it at all even if I tried again.

If you used Android Device Manager's total lockdown feature, you won't be able to use your old password to unlock the device. You'll have to enter the password you used for the total lockdown feature. If you don't remember the password you used for that feature, you will unfortunately have to perform a factory reset on your device by following this in-depth VisiHow guide.

I cannot unlock the screen of my Galaxy S4. I tried swiping the screen but did not work?

Looks like the screen is not accepting any command. I tried also to power off and did not work. Help me please. Thanks.

Sometimes this can happen to any touch screen phone. We've even seen it happen to iPhones. You can press and hold the power button for 20 seconds for a soft reset, or remove the battery and SD card, and then replace the battery and restart the phone. In one of our tests, we were unable to get a touch screen to work again, but once the phone battery had completely drained and the phone was off, when we charged it back up, the touch screen worked perfectly and never had a problem after that.

My Samsung Galaxy S4 will no longer swipe to unlock. It will turn on and off but I have no way of getting to the menu screen?

My Samsung Galaxy S4 will not swipe to unlock. It turns on and off. I can see I have texts coming in and emails, but it will not allow me to swipe to unlock to reach the home screen and use the menu button

Turn off your device by pressing and holding the power button for 20 seconds. This will soft reset your Samsung Galaxy S4 (you will lose no data), and your touch screen might start working again after that. If it still doesn't work, try taking out the battery and the SD card, and then restarting it with just the battery back in. Sometimes this can cause the phone to restart properly. In the event this does not work, you'll need to take your phone to an authorized service center to have it looked at.
