How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

6 Solid Signs You Should Have Your Smart Device Repaired Right Away

Personal_Finance / Money Saving May 14, 2021 - 12:25 PM GMT

By: Steve_Barker


Most of us rely heavily on our smart gadgets in our day-to-day lives, both personally and professionally. For that reason, it can be a total nightmare when your trusty device starts acting up. While it’s usually best to replace an old device before it gives up the ghost, not all malfunctioning gadgets are beyond repair. To avoid any major inconveniences that may disrupt your work or prevent you from communicating effectively with your loved ones, keep an eye out for the following six signs. If you experience any of these problems, consider it a warning that you need to repair your smart device right away.

1. Your Device Constantly Overheats

Constant overheating can fry your device’s internal components and cause permanent battery damage. Plus, some gadgets can explode when they overheat, possibly causing serious injuries. If your phone or tablet overheats when you’re not using it or when the weather isn’t that hot, it may be a sign of malware infection. Malicious software can eat up a lot of RAM and target your gadget’s CPU, forcing it to work harder, which consequently leads to overheating. Install a malware detector to check for malicious software and remove any infections on your device. If your phone still overheats after this or you find no signs of malware infection, it’s best to seek the help of a repair technician.

2. It Keeps Shutting Down or Rebooting on Its Own

Some smartphones have built-in temperature sensors that trigger an automatic shutdown in extreme weather conditions. However, your phone should function normally once you bring it back to room temperature. If it keeps rebooting or shutting down on its own, this may be a sign of a defective battery or a malware infection. If the issue persists after scanning your device for malware, you should take it to a repair shop as soon as you can. A specialized technician will help you rid your phone of any hidden infections or replace its battery depending on the root cause of the problem.

3. The Touchscreen Has Become Slow or Unresponsive

Because touch displays are sensitive, they may stop responding if dust, moisture, or debris accumulates on them. The Georgia-based repair technicians at recommend cleaning your touchscreen with a microfiber cloth before rebooting the device to fix the problem. If your touchscreen is still slow or unresponsive, it could be because dirt or water has already built up inside your device. If you have recently installed a new OS, then it may be because your device’s processor can’t handle the software update. In such cases, having your phone examined by a professional is the best course of action.

4. Apps Keep Crashing

If larger apps keep crashing, it could be because they are not compatible with your device’s OS, and you can easily fix that by updating your apps. But if you haven’t updated the OS recently, this could be a sign that your phone or tablet is getting old. To avoid losing any important or valuable data, make sure you backup your device before resetting it. If that doesn’t help, a specialized technician can fix the problem by installing an older OS version that is more compatible with your gadget’s specs.

5. The Power Button No Longer Works

Nowadays, buttons are considered a thing of the past, but most smartphones and tablets have few critical buttons, such as the power button. While this isn’t necessarily a serious red flag, it can cause great inconvenience if the power button on your device stops working and you can’t turn it on or off. Since this may require inspecting the internal components of the gadget, it’s best to take it to the nearest repair shop and have a professional technician look at it.

6. The Battery Life Doesn’t Get You Through Half the Day

Reduced battery life is a sure sign of an aging device. Ultimately, the only solution to this problem is to replace your phone altogether. However, a repair technician can provide a temporary fix by replacing the battery or recommending a good battery case or portable charger. Invest in a quality case or power bank to avoid further damaging your battery, and be sure to check the voltage of the charger you are considering before buying it. That way, you can charge your phone on the go and make sure your battery has enough juice to last you through the day.

These are the most common problems people often experience with their smart gadgets. If none of the troubleshooting steps we’ve provided work, it’s best to seek the help of a repair technician right away. Otherwise, you may risk losing important data on your device. If your smartphone or tablet is too old, a professional will be able to advise you on whether or not you need to replace it to avoid being stranded without a working device.
