A modern day tech-user has taken to buy handheld mobile devices like never before. For most of us carrying a smartphone or tablet is no different than carrying our wallet. But like most electronic devices something or other can go wrong with your device.
The worst part of owing these devices come if one has to take them to service centre. Many problems are either not covered in the warranty, or a heavy bill and inconvenience awaits the user. In fact the experience of going to a service centre can be a nightmarish experience in itself with the best of brands.
But more often than not, the condition of your favourite gadget may actually not be as bad as it seems and you can fix the problem yourself by following some simple steps. Here are some tips.
Scratches on the Screen
Using your smartphone without a screen guard is not really a brave action because the scratches that will appear on your screen after sometime will really pinch you hard.
Well, toothpaste can help you fix those scratches and make your phone's screen as shiny as your teeth,Just put toothpaste on the screen and gently rub it in circular motion with a soft cloth or cotton and then wipe the whole thing with a soft and slightly damp cloth.
Phone shuts-off randomly
Another common problem that occurs with smartphones is that they randomly shut off. Well, this points towards two things: Either you have dropped your phone a good number of times or the battery is loose.
Buying a new battery can be expensive solution especially when you can solve this problem with just a tiny piece of paper. All you have to do is to take a tiny bit of paper and fold it. Then open the back cover of your phone and insert the folded bit of paper between the edge of the battery and edge of the phone, on the opposite sides where the terminals of the battery are located. This will keep the battery firmly in place and stop your phone from shutting down.
Stuck pixels are the dead pixels that appear on the smartphone screen as a stationary black dot or a bright white or red spot. You can try removing them by gently massaging the area around the stuck pixel with a soft cloth. By this method you are allowing the pixel to reorient itself and regain color.
