Today, smartphones come with high-grade features and specifications and in most devices, all interactions and functions are performed using the touchscreen interface. However, if the touch-screen fails to respond or becomes unresponsive, the device fails to function as desired. Who does not want their smartphone to run smoothly, so it’s quite frustrating when your smartphone’s touchscreens do not work properly. The touch-screen becomes unresponsive because of two major reasons. Either it’s a software glitch or a hardware issue. Hardware issues are not easy to fix and requires a professional repair or replacement. This can only be done by taking your device to a certified smartphone repair company.
Well, that’s not necessary! Before calling Tech Bar in Miami, try following these ideal expert tips at home.
MAKE SURE THAT THE SCREEN IS CLEAN
It’s quite possible that the touchscreen of your device might fail to function properly if it has been touched by moist, dirty or greasy hands. That’s why the first and the most important thing you should do is to check whether or not the device is clean. And if it does not then wipe the touch screen with a clean cotton bud or cloth and get rid of the dirt accumulated on it. Keep in mind, to avoid touching your device with greasy or wet fingers.
DELETE AND REINSTALL APPS
If your touch screen is not functioning right within a particular app but seems to respond better when you close it, the issue could be with that app rather than the touchscreen itself. So, it’s better to check for updates for all the apps in your device. If there is no update available, simply click the delete button and reinstall the app again from the app store.
RESTART YOUR SMARTPHONE
Yes, sometimes a simple restart can solve few major problems. Restart your device and check out your screen, if it still does not function properly, let’s try another traditional way. Therefore, if your device has a removable battery, take it off and put it back again and turn on the smartphone. If these methods do not fix your touch screen, it means there is a major issue, that needs an expert inspection.
REMOVE THE SCREEN PROTECTOR
Sometimes cheap quality screen protectors available in the market can greatly affect the proper functionality of your smartphone’s touchscreen. Well, there is no doubt that they can protect your device, but they are too thick that makes the functionality of all your commands difficult and end up with an unresponsive screen. So, remove the screen protector and test your screen.
