Many smartphones are generally easy to use and a problem-free, but once in a while something goes wrong. Customers would take their handset to their local mobile phone shop to fix an issue that could have easily been resolved at your home rather than paying anywhere from £25 – £70.
Below I have listed 3 common smartphone problems that can be easily fixed.
My phone isn’t charging
If you have ever tried to plug your handset in and the device doesn’t recognise the charger, then there are two possible easy solutions that you can try.
One, the port that is used to plug the charger in could be dirty. As many people put their smartphones in their pocket or in a purse it can easily collect dust over a long period of time. To fix this issue, you simply turn the handset off and carefully spray a small amount of duster over the port. The duster is an effective tool that forces dust out of the plug to have a clean and unblocked port.
Two, in some cases the charger itself isn’t fitting tightly enough in the port. This commonly happens when a user is on the phone to someone while it is charging or having the handset plugged in at an uneven angle. In most cases the charger itself is the issue and not the handset. Using another charger can usually solve this issue before thinking about buying a new handset.
I dropped my phone in water
It is very easy to drop your phone into a puddle of water and in some cases it is too late to react after realising there are solutions available. If you act quickly, there may be some time left to save your phone. As soon as your phone gets wet, dry it off with a clean towel and place it into a bowl of dry rice, making sure the handset is fully covered. Leaving your handset over the night in a bowl of rice will absorb the moisture from the handset and will enable the phone to start working again.
My camera or video recorder has stopped working
This is also another common smartphone problem that occurs once in a while. Unexpectedly the camera will not turn on or the video recorder won’t start recording. As the camera is a built-in feature, most customers assume it is a problem with the hardware and have the device replaced; however this could have also been a problem with the handset’s software. Before you decide to purchase a new handset, it is a good idea to have the handset restored on your phone and make sure your operation system is up to date. Rebooting and updating your operating system can also fix the problem and may help your camera to start working again.
