Why doesnt my LG G2's OTG mouse work?

by Koontez / February 22, 2015 4:15 AM PST

I am trying to recover photos from a broken LG G2 (Screen cracked, lower half wont register touch), I bought a OTG android USB adapter, but the mouse only appears on the screen sometimes, and when it does, when I move the mouse, the cursor doesn't move.

If someone could please help me it would be very appreciated!

Phone: LG G2
Adapter: Samsung OTG USB Adapter
Mouse: Logitech

digitizer issue
by renegade600 / February 22, 2015 4:38 AM PST

generally speaking, screen glass is usually attached to the digitizer. if the glass is broken or cracked, it could mean the digitizer is damaged so you may not be able to do much on the screen..

if you are able to see your phone in windows explorer by attaching it to your computer.you may be able to drag your photos over that way.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
