Screen lock pattern not working and touch not responding?
The touchscreen not working at all.
Restart your device. Android will sometimes lock up on its lock-screen and won't allow you to get into your phone. If it still doesn't work after a restart, perform a Factory Reset by following this in-depth VisiHow article. If neither of these options work, your screen is likely broken and you'll need to take your device in for service.
The phone just flashes after putting in the password nothing else shows?
I gave my phone to a friend and when he brought it, it was no longer working properly after putting in the password
If the phone flashes as in showing a logotype, powering down, and rebooting, then you might need to check the battery contacts on the device. Open the back cover and push the battery closer to the contacts of the phone by using an object that you can stuff between the battery and the rim of the phone.
Otherwise, hard-reset your device by following the tips in our tutorial on how to perform a factory reset. Scroll down to "Factory Reset Android Devices Not Booting Normally".

New Xperia M4 Aqua, tried to restart after losing signal, will not turn on now?
Hi, I recently replaced my old Xperia M4 with a new one. This evening I noticed it had no signal so decided to restart the phone to see if this would fix the problem. I was wrong. My phone powers up to show "Sony Xperia" and will not turn on again. Is there a simple fix?. I have tried: Tried a restart without the SD card and SIM card with no success. I think it was caused by: Could be a game that I installed on the phone interfering with the software? Can't think of anything else.
