How To Fix Touch Screen Problems On Your Smartphone.


Touch screens are becoming more and more popular replacing the physical keyboards on mobile phones. Nowadays everyone is going the smart way and hence the rise in demand for smartphones. And 80% of smartphones are touch based.
The touch screen serves as the only mode of input on these phones. Touch based phones have much larger screens as compared to those with keypads. The screen gives the user enough room to display bigger and clearer images and videos.

The touch operates by being  able to sense the section of the screen being touch and they can figure out what actions to take from there. It also offers it's users a much faster mode of input and  ease of use. Even kids are able to use the touch screen, and they love to.
But like any other man-made device, the touch screen may refuse to function along the way. A little hardware or software changes may cause it to malfunction. Even dirt too, it can accumulate on the screen and can affect the sensors causing it to be unresponsive.

So if the touch-screen of your phone refuses to take command, some parts work whiles other do not or it displays a different results when you issue a command, the first thing to do is to wipe off any dirt on the screen with a very clean piece of cloth. Many devices with touch screens come with cleaning cloths that are safe to use and won't damage the screen. Please do it gently to prevent the screen from further cracking.
If the problem still persists, try any of the following:

  • Turn off the device. Wait for about 10 seconds and turn it back on again. Powering the phone off can solve minor software flaws.
  • Power off the phone and remove both the SIM and Memory card and then power it on again.
