5 Common cell phone issues and their solution (1)

Here are 5 common cell phone issues and how to fix them :

  1. Frozen Screen or not responding:

Sometimes your cell phone will freeze when you’re trying to open an app. You try to close the app, lock the screen, and turn off your cell phone but nothing seems to fix it. It is not possible to use the phone when the screen is frozen or not responding

Solution:

  • Plug your phone into a charger because cell phones with low battery power sometimes freeze.
  • Hard restart on your cell phone which will force it to restart but not affect your data. For iPhone, hold the home and power/lock button at the same time until the Apple logo reappears (power and volume-down for 7 series and newer).
  • For the Samsung device, hold the volume and power button for 15 seconds until the screen turns on.
  • For LG devices, press the volume down and power/lock buttons

If these tips don’t fix the issue then visit a smartphone repair shop. ifixScreens.com offers Same Day Smartphone Repair Services.

  1. Broken Glass Screen

If you drop your cell phone, it’s possible that you’ll break its glass screen. Some people continue to using cracked glass. Others will harm their fingers on the broken glass. Using a phone with cracked glass also increase to further damage inside the device.

Solution:

The two most common techniques to repair cell phone screens are:

  • Insurance
  • Repair stores.

If you have insurance, check if it gives replacements. Insurance typically requires you to pay a deductible and mail the phone in for service. If you’re looking for same-day service, you can take it to a repair shop, such as ifixscreens, for fast and affordable glass replacement.

  1. Water and Liquid Damage

Water damage in a cell phone is a very common issue. Most of the time cell phones are unprotected to liquid by accident in the bathroom, kitchen, sea, or by the swimming pool. Even a small volume of water inside your device is enough to damage it through corrosion or by shorting out electrical circuits.

Solution:

  • Turn off your device immediately. Then, dry off your device as soon as possible.
  • Quickly get to a cell phone repair shop to have it diagnosed.
  • Take away your SIM and microSD cards from their slots.
  • Use a cloth or towel to dab your phone dry.
  • Put the cell phone in a zip lock bag full of uncooked rice.
  • You can use a dryer to carefully suck out water stuck in the cracks
  1. Battery draining issue:

Cell phone Battery issues are one of the most common phone frustrations, usually caused by user abuse. Next time you find that your phone is taking forever to charge to 100 percent or that it seems to die on your way too fast, try changing some of the settings and clearing apps that can drain your battery.

Solution:

  • Make sure the charger you are using is optimized for your battery. Then, decrease your screen timeout setting so that your phone will fall asleep sooner when not in use, and reduce your brightness when possible.
  • If your cell phone has a battery saving mode, initiate it whenever you need your phone to be accessible without plugging it in for several hours.
  1. Charge Port damaged or not working:

Over time it’s possible that your charge port will not work and you won’t be able to charge your device. If your phone doesn’t charge no matter how long it’s plugged in, your chart port may be damaged or dirty. Unless it’s fixed, you cannot have sufficient power to use your phone.

Solution:

  • Ensure that charging cable is not the issue. Use a different charger in your house. Make sure you test with an original charger because another company charger cannot be reliable.
  • If you still cannot charge your cell phone, take your phone into a cell phone repair shop for a diagnostic. Sometimes you just need to clean the charge port carefully. Technicians will have the tools kit and information to do this without causing damage.
  • It may also be a bad battery which they can test and replace the battery in the store if necessary. Otherwise, the repair technicians may need to replace the charge port.

Let's Sea What Some Have To Say

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
