How To Fix LG G7 ThinQ Touchscreen Is Unresponsive
Problem: I have a lg g7 thinq an my screen sometimes work and sometimes don’t . What I mean is I can open the phone with the fingerprint print but when I touch the screen there’s no response but if I sit the phone down for a little while I can pick it up an the touch works for like ten to twenty seconds and stops working I thought if was the screen so I got it replaced an it still doing the same think can someone help me out.
Solution: The touchscreen of this phone uses a capacitive technology which does not need calibrating. In order for the screen to work make sure that your fingers are dry when you touch it. You should also remove any screen protector that you have placed on the device as this can also affect the sensitivity of the touchscreen.
If the above steps fails to fix the problem then proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below.
Start the phone in Safe Mode
Try to check if an app you downloaded is causing the problem by starting the phone in Safe Mode. When the phone operates in this mode only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run.
- Make sure that the phone is powered off.
- Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power button until the System recovery screen displays then release both buttons.
- Select Safe mode. Use Volume buttons to highlight the option and the Power button to select.
If the issue does not occur in this mode then it’s very likely that an app is causing the problem. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
Backup your phone data then do a factory reset
There are instances when this problem can also be caused by a software glitch. To check if this is the case then you will need to backup your phone data then do a factory reset.
- Turn off the device.
- Press and hold the Power and Volume down buttons.
- When the LG logo appears, quickly release and then re-hold the Power button while continuing to hold the Volume down button.
- When the ‘Delete all user data (including LG and carrier apps) and reset all settings’ message appears, use the Volume down button to highlight Yes.
- Press the Power button to reset the device
