Screen Replacement & Repair

Cell Phone Screen Problems

With the growing popularity of touchscreens, cell phone screen problems have become more common. Because the screen is the only way to use a phone, the constant physical beating it takes for internet searching, appointment setting, texting, and more can cause problems.

Touchscreens operate from a complex set of components designed to “feel” your fingers as they move across the screen. If these components are not functioning properly you could have problems like spots or discoloration, little or no backlight, flickering screen backlight, or buttons that don’t function. There are a few things that you can do to troubleshoot your cell phone screen problems before seeking repair.

Troubleshooting Cell Phone Screen Problemsscreen replacement cpr

Problems with your cell phone screen can be caused by a number of issues. It could actually be the result of a software problem. Try powering of the device and then turning it back on to try to reset the software. Then check the screen to see if it has improved. The charge could be low, or the battery could be damaged. Try charging the phone for several hours and checking the screen again.

Sometimes the nature of the screen display can reveal the problem. If the screen is discolored, use a pen cap to lightly rub the screen in the discolored area. If the issue is stuck pixels, applying mild pressure to the screen might fix it. If you have a slider-style phone with a white screen, the issue could be a ribbon cable that has worn out or moved out of its socket. You might be able to move it back into place by tapping on the back of the phone where the battery is held.
