What to do if the iPad does not respond to touch
Posted by: 02.11.2017
The most primitive "malfunction" is the use of the iPad in gloves. In this case, the screen will not react, since the principle of its action is specifically tuned to direct capacitive contact with parts of the human body. But, I hope that you are not so inattentive)).
Okay, jokes about gloves to the side, let's move on to serious things.
A common and relatively harmless case is that the iPad crashes while using it.. This is due to various factors, such as:
- careless handling resulting in mechanical destruction of circuit elements;
- download malware;
- malfunction of the elements of the food chain.
The first and most secure method (if the gadget doesn’t respond to your touch), since it does not erase data, a forced reboot. To do this, simultaneously press and hold the "Sleep" and "Home" button for 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPad turns on, but continues to ignore (does not respond) touching the screen, perform the second method. If the screen contains a protective film or cover - remove them. Using a soft, lint-free cloth, wipe the screen surface thoroughly, unplug the device. Execute reboot iPadas described in the first method.
In some cases, it helps to extract the SIM card (if any) and the memory card from the tablet when it is turned off. After that, you must wait a few minutes to self-discharge the electrical circuits of the device and turn it on without cards.
3D Touch Settings
Incorrect registration of touches can be caused by misaligned software screen adjustment.. Click on the “General” tab in the “Settings” menu and select “Universal Access” - 3D Touch. Calibrate using the recommended program method.
A similar fault is common among outdated models with resistive matrices. It should be noted that the screen should be calibrated only when the screen incorrectly or with an offset enters data.
The most expensive malfunction
In addition, the most common reason is the failure of the touch screen as a result of careless handling. Usually it is the consequences of falling or pouring common liquids - tea, coffee.
If visually revealed chips or cracks on the screen, the liquid is poured in and you were unable to “revive” the device using the above methods, you will not be able to avoid going to the service center. Self-repair can significantly increase the cost of subsequent recovery in case of failure. Especially, if the iPad warranty period is exhausted.
For today everything, I hope after all the above described actions, your iPad perfectly responds to your touch.
