Give the phone’s cache a fresh start
In some instances, the unresponsive touch screen might be the result of a very cluttered cache memory that slows down everything. Especially if your issues showed up after recently starting to work with particular apps, you can suspect that something might be going on in the cache memory’s backyard.
Go through this guide on how to clear the cache memory of a Samsung Galaxy and follow the basic steps:
- Cut off the power by turning off the device;
- Tap and hold on the Home and Volume Up keys and, immediately after that, on the Power button, holding them all until the phone vibrates;
- After that, you can release the Power key but hold the other two until you see the Android logo;
- After you’re in the Recovery Mode, you can highlight the menu entry “Wipe Cache Partition”;
- Start it with the Power button – one tap will do it;
- Select the Yes option for confirmation;
- Following the wipe cache partition, when you return to the Recovery Mode, select Reboot System Now;
- Hit the Power key for your Samsung Galaxy A9, A8, A7, A6, A5, A4, A3 to reboot into the normal running mode, naturally, with a clear system cache and, hopefully, with a fully responsive display.
Return to the factory defaults of your Galaxy A9, A8, A7, A6, A5, A4, A3
It’s hard to think of such an invasive method that, after all, implies deleting everything, when you’re dealing with a touch screen issue. Most people are tempted to associate these problems with some physical flaws of the display rather than with a software issue. But you cannot troubleshoot the hardware malfunctions of your phone’s display on your own. That’s why you should consider learning how to hard reset Samsung Galaxy – because there are also instances when the display is poorly responsive due to a software issue. And if you can fix it this way, why not go to Settings, Backup & Reset, do a backup of your most important files, and then proceed to these steps:
- Power off your phone;
- Access the Recovery Mode with a simultaneous tap and hold of Volume Up, Power, Home;
- Let go of all the keys once the Samsung logo appears;
- Use the Volume buttons to surf through the menus available under the Recovery Mode and the Power button to initiate the desired action;
- Select Wipe Data / Factory reset;
- Confirm with “Yes – delete all user data”;
- Select the Reboot System Now to leave the Recovery Mode, once the hard reset was finished.
