The HTC One M8 may well be one of the most commonly used Android phones in the world. That said, the device isn’t without its problems, which is why web developer and AndroidOrigin writer Doug Lynch lists a few tips to help owners troubleshoot and fix some of the One M8’s most prevalent issues. A blank screen, for instance, stems from a problem with the device’s hardware or software:
“This seems to be a common problem with the HTC One M8. If you are experiencing this issue there isn’t much you can do. First of all, we suggest holding down the power button for 10 seconds until the device is forced to restart. After the restart you should see the screen turn on like normal. If this has happened a lot then you should return the device because it’s most likely a hardware issue.”
Better yet, HTC One M8 owners in Australia can seek top-notch mobile phone repairs in Melbourne from a reputable vendor like TWorld ICT. Indeed, despite the abundance of DIY instructional videos that purport to “simplify” the repair process, smartphone owners would do well to resist the temptation to tinker with their devices.
The HTC One M8 was released in April 2014, as part of the Taipei-based phone company’s attempt to reinvent its stagnating brand. While the device quickly earned the acclaim of Android phone users everywhere, it ran into software problems such as random crashes and SIM card errors. Applications like Yahoo! Mail were rather hard to operate on the HTC One M8, unlike in other mobile devices.
That said, differentiating a software problem from an issue with the phone’s hardware isn’t exactly as clear-cut. As Lynch demonstrates in his article, an HTC One M8 with a bad signal can be fixed simply by clearing its cache or, as a last resort, restoring factory settings. However, neither solution won’t work if the problem actually stems from an issue with the phone’s modem—something that certainly needs the attention of a recognized provider of HTC repair in Melbourne and elsewhere. One M8 owners may also want to notify HTC customer support regarding such problems to ensure that their devices are properly inspected and repaired.
