Display (screen) not working on Samsung phone
Remember, if the screen on your Samsung phone is not working, then it’s time to contact a service center. If the mobile body looks completely intact, there are no slightest cracks, there are no smudges on the display, then the reasons may be as follows:
Sometimes the display on a Samsung phone stops working due to the fact that the screen itself, that is, the matrix, is damaged. Most modern smartphones from Samsung (A-series: Galaxy A3, A5, A7; S-series: Galaxy S5, S6, S7, S8; also some J-series models) use amoled matrices, one of the disadvantages of which is fragility. If they are damaged, as a rule, outwardly there may be no signs, since small cracks are under the glass and can only be viewed from a certain angle. The outer glass very often remains completely intact, the phone boots up, makes sounds when touched, you can even pick up the phone from memory when there is an incoming call, but there is no image or backlight, only the touch buttons at the bottom of the screen next to the home button are lit. Do not try to make repairs yourself: not only is it difficult, but you can also aggravate the breakdown by damaging the loop of the touch buttons, the back glass cover, etc. Remember, our service center will solve your problem in a matter of hours: we always have the right original parts. If even you have the slightest doubt, then do not risk it: immediately take the phone to the masters, because only they will carry out a high-quality replacement.

The phone is now set to adaptive, but the other modes don’t change anything. 2. Camera: kicks out of camera mode after one shot. It was already 3 times. On the 4th attempt, the system completely went out and did not boot. Did a soft reset, plugged in the charger could turn on the power still 41%. 3. Power: At some point in time, the system dropped the charge from 56% to 14% in about 5-10 minutes, and the front was hot. Plugged in the charger let’s say at 14 percent 3 minutes later, the charge percentage returned to 41%. 4. Speed: I just noticed when I just flip through old photos on the micro SD, moved from another camera Sometimes, up to 5 seconds, I just flip from one picture to another This problem seems to have diminished after charging it for a while. I tried to check for updates: about device. software updates. update now The message Software update appears. and then the process failed, okay? I am at a loss…. contacted the seller nothing has been returned so far.

After the reset is complete, do not install any applications on your phone yet. Try to check first if the problem is still there. If this happens, it is most likely a hardware problem.

Samsung Galaxy A7 screen won’t turn on, but phone works
Problem: Hi, I hope you guys can help me. I have a problem with my Galaxy A7. His screen doesn’t want to turn on. It stays black, but the phone itself works, the recent apps button, the back button and the home button all work. I can receive phone calls and the phone vibrates, but I cannot see anything on the screen, the screen remains black. I searched for something on the internet and found that I needed to hold down the power button and the volume down button, but this method did not work. I also tried the volume down button, home button and power button, but nothing worked and the phone’s screen suddenly went black even though I used it 5 minutes ago. Thank you guys if you can help me. I will be grateful.
A similar problem: I have a Samsung Galaxy A7 that I dropped, and right after I picked it up, the screen stuck, I thought that maybe I just need to restart it, which I did, but after that the screen went dark. everything else still works, it turns on, I get messages but the screen stays black. I tried to reset it and restart but nothing works, the screen stays the same. Please tell me what I can do to fix this.
Solution: The best thing you can do right now is start your phone in recovery mode.
② Press and hold the Volume Up Home Power buttons for a few seconds.

A7 screen with green stripe
Problem: Hello everyone! I have a Samsung A7. I have been using it for almost 7 months. It suddenly began to malfunction, and I did not drop it or crush the screen. A green stripe appears on the right side of the edge. When it is heated or used for a while, the streak becomes noticeable, and when it cools, the streak disappears. It was thin, but over time it doubled in size. Will the strip spread from where it is now, because I did not drop the phone and did not break the screen?
Solution: The first thing you should do in this case is to check if the problem is caused by an application you downloaded. To do this, just check if the problem occurs in Safe Mode. If not, the problem is most likely caused by a third-party application. Find out what this app is and uninstall it.
If the problem still occurs even in safe mode, you should consider doing a factory reset. Make sure to back up your phone data before performing a reset. After the reset is complete, do not install any applications on your phone. Check if the green bar is present. If so, then the display assembly is most likely to blame. If the band gets larger over time, you need to change the display on your phone at a service center.
