    Here is how it started:
    1. The locked screen comes on, you can see all the notifications etc. \
    2. On the locked screen I can use the camera, read the notifications etc.
    3. However when I swipe to the unlock screen, the numbers present themselves, but no matter how many times i press the numbers, nothing happens. The light indicator does not acknowledge you even pressed a number.
    4. At this point I restart it and attempt it again. I have done this several times to no avail.
    and now: Alas
    Screen went black, it will not turn on at all. I ensured it was fully charged before i started all this.

    Any solutions or suggestions will be appreciated.....

    Do a hard reboot and see if it will pick up your passcode after that.
