Did your phone screen just crack? Or did you accidentally drop your phone in the water? Is your phone’s battery troubling you? And, now you are seeking quick repairs as no one would want a disrupted mobile phone.
Well, some of you will try to repair it on your own. No doubt, there will be a ton of DIY hacks and repair videos available on the internet to tempt you towards this. However, it is not a good idea to do so.
Some faults people decide to repair on their own, but should definitely not, are as follows:
1. DIY Handling Of Software Issues Can Let You Lose Your Device:
If you are dealing with a slow performance of your phone, or, heating up, hanging of touch screens, these are all signs of software issues.
Many people will try to handle them on their own. In this regard, the very first thing we’ll do will restart the device.
I might then empty some space or uninstall and reinstall an app. This might help for some time but unfortunately, that’s not the solution.
Furthermore, a hard reset or most commonly known as a factory reset might be able to resolve software issues for the time being.
But what if after all this hassle you still have to wipe your hands off the device after some time?
Know that it is always better to get it repaired by professionals. They will see if you need a memory clean-up or software reinstallation.
2. Remedying Infected Files Can Be Tricky:
Sometimes you download a file or install an app and your phone begins to do funny things right after that.
You delete the app, delete some more, and clear out your playlist but the problem exists. Hence, no use of home remedies here because your device has been infected by digital viruses or malware.
You need to install an authorized antivirus for their removal. What’s even better? Contact a repair service that offers you the installation of full versions of antiviruses.
3. Handling A Dunked Phone Can Damage Your Device:
The most common accident you can have with your phone is dropping it in the water. And, without a doubt, even I have tried to repair it on my own using the ultimate savior i.e., the hair dryer.
But keep in mind that a dunked phone can be at most risk. If you handle it improperly, you can short your device. Even some little moisture left in the circuit can cause problems over time. Over and above this, the speakers might die too.
Another trouble you can get yourself into is overheating your device. You definitely have no idea what temperature your hair dryer is running at and, when to stop using it further?
You can even damage the device in the process of opening and closing it from drying. Thus, I suggest you with personal experience to avoid the hair dryer hack and go for more expert solutions.
4. Replacing Battery Yourself Can Complicate Your Device:
If the consumption of your battery has increased while your usage of the device is the same, your battery life has decreased.
Notably, sudden shutdowns are also one of the signs of a dying battery. Many of us think that battery replacement is not an issue that needs a fortune to be spent upon.
Moreover, spare batteries are easily available and you just need to pull off some stunts with the screwdriver and the work is done and dusted.
Nevertheless, be mindful that it is not as simple as it seems. In fact, replacing a battery can be a complex task, especially in the latest smartphones which have some intricate and delicate structures.
Moreover, a dying battery does not only mean a bad battery, it can be a bad charging point as well. Or, your charger might not be working right.
In this regard, only a skilled person can identify such faults and guide you best.
5. Changing The Screen Can Hurt You And Your Phone:
A smashed phone screen is the most horrible thing that can happen to your mobile phone. This is so because it is the most sensitive part of your device. That’s why you should not try to repair it at home in any case.
Whatever your reasons might be and how well you can handle your tools, if you are unable to replace the screen, you lose your phone.
Also, we should not forget that the screen is glass and you can hurt yourself when dealing with it. Adding to this is the fact that you won’t always find original spare screens for replacement.
Therefore, you should consider professional refurbishing companies for support. Know that all manufacturers develop original spare screens and provide them to authorized repair centers for refurbishing.
To Sum Up:
Hope this guide helps you decide when you need to be trained people to repair your phone. Without any doubt, buying a good and latest smartphone does cost a heavy fortune.
Just to save a few bucks, you avoid going to a good repair shop and try self-repairing. This can actually reduce the life of your phone or can cause irreparable damage.
For that reason, always seek professional and trained personnel to handle your phone so that it lasts long.
