My phone was in the sun to long
I let my phone in the sun now it doe not work now.
da, it would help if you would tell us exactly what your phone is, or isn't, doing. I would start with a
soft reset. Simply pull the battery out, after a few minutes put it back in and power up your phone.
If that does not work, consider a hard reset and a new battery. This will remove all your data:
Turn your phone off.
With the phone off, press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key, then press and hold the Power key. You'll see the Android recovery screen.
Scroll to Wipe Data/Factory Reset using the Volume Up or Down keys. Select with the power key.
Scroll down to Yes, Delete User Data and select it.
Back on the first screen, scroll down to Wipe Cache Partition and select it.
Your factory reset is now complete.
Go to Reboot System
Now to restart the phone.
It's 2021 now, we're still being told to suffocate ourselves by the ruling class who don't follow their own laws or guidelines and have shoulder to shoulder meals without masks on while asking us serfs to forgive them….
Oh right the phone screen question. I can confirm that direct sunlight will certainly damage and or kill the digitizer if left in direct sunlight for more than a few minutes; it just happened to me yesterday on a phone that otherwise worked flawlessly. Went into the grocery store, when I came back to my car, saw my phone sitting in the sun, it was the hottest I've ever felt it, i mean WOW. The touch works sporadically now and sometimes doesn't work at all no matter where i touch on the screen.
FYI The digitizer is under the glass and you don't see it because it's clear; most people are unaware that its responsible for the touch response on your phone screen.
That's why sometimes you can crack your glass and it still lights up and the touch still works because the digitizer wasn't damaged. But sometimes you crack the glass and the digitizer [which you can't tell because it's behind the broken glass], now the screen comes on but no touch response and you're off to the nearest phone repair.
That's a lot of answers for one question, if this helped you, pray for me. Mike the computer guy in Alta Loma
