My Pattern Lock is not working anymore!

I have a S8  (bought new) for long time, and today, sundely Pattern lock stop working always says "Incorrect Patter Draw". I'm pretty sure I'm doing it correctly, as it is the same I have on other device. Consider this:

 

  • I do have fingerprint working, wich enables me to use the phone for now
  • Can't change any security setting as it also asks for pattern unlock
  • Phone has boot protection also with pattern lock, which may lock me down if phone restarts
  • My screen has an old fissure, but not only it has been always working fine, as I can see pattern being correctly desing on screen as I try to unlock and last, using built in  option (*#0*#) or with test apps, touch screen seems to be with no flaws

    I read about similar issues on S7, people saying it did unlock after many trial or after a reboot (which I'm afraid as I also have pattern lock on boot). Why is this happening? How can I overcame it? Is Factory Reset my only option?

This not worked for me... Have a J4, didn't make tring tring sound...

I made a cloud backup. Should I erase data and restore backup?

same here with my tab 10: the pattern (with an overlapping dot) suddenly no longer works. I have the remote unlock active but it keeps giving me 'something went wrong'. How do i do factory resetting?

You sir saved me. VERY TRUE if you are doing your correct pattern after 1000x times and it does not offer cool off period... most likely it's a glitch and will work with a simple switch off and turn back on!!!! 

Phone is back to normal now. THANK YOU
