Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 - screen partially unresponsive how to bypass pattern unlock

I replaced the screen on my smartphone last week and all was well until last night when part of the screen stopped responding and unfortunately it's the part that is crucial to both my pattern unlock and swiping to answer calls. I had set up a secondary PIN unlock in case this happened but the phone isn't giving me the option to enter this, no matter how many times my pattern fails. Help!
