Do you think the most annoying thing about Android is the lag that occurs in some terminals when opening any app or game? I’ll give you bad news, and there is something worse than that reboots. No volunteers Restarts those you do out of necessity or love to boot animation, I mean those infernal restarts that makes your terminal on your own while using your favorite app. Luckily this is solvable, and this article will solve a number of reasons why your smartphone restarts itself.
It is becoming less common, but it can still happen. May, during manufacture, a piece of hardware is not well assembled, thus generating the problem. In such cases the only solution is that you change the device, there is no possible patch that mitigates the problem, send your service and you change. As a precaution, put all data except for the new terminal.
Android is ready, and if you find a problem you can solve warn you that you need to fix it. If the problem is so complex that does not see how to fix it or generated a cluster of them, that is when the terminal is restarted. For different cases there are solutions, some perhaps a bit obvious, but it never hurts to remember for those that happens for the first time.
Incompatibility apps or malware
If after installing an application from Play Store your device restarts almost instantly, it is very likely that such implementation is partially incompatible. I say partially because if completely incompatible Google Play warn that your smartphone is not supported and, therefore, no install button, so you can not install it, obviously.
If you have installed any app from an external source to Google Play may be incompatible at all or, more likely, be malware. Often the creators of these malicious apps have a not very known intentions, but in no case are good. I take this opportunity to advise that distrust of the typical apps that say they can spy on other people’s conversations for a small fee. Basically, you are paying for being infected. You probably already know this, but it is well to remember that what your advice and your relatives.
The solution to this problem is to uninstall the application that will cause the problem. If the app is from an external source to Google Play and you is really essential, it is best to seek some anti-malware application and perform a scan, but my advice would be to uninstall it and look at some more reliable source or looking for something similar in Google Play.
Problems installing updates
There are a lot of lucky people who enjoy system updates on their smartphones, but not always work out. There are cases in which, after upgrading Android, the smartphone begins to have spontaneous rebooting due to a failure during firmware installation or conflict with data from the previous version.This sort of thing can happen today, but it is one of the oldest problems in the operating system (Android and any).
The best solution to this problem is a reset to factory data after the upgrade. Ojo, not before, ever after because if your phone notifies you of an update and data reset before installing it , you ‘ll have to wait (is one of the things I talked some time ago in an article on how to have faster updates Android ). Restoring do, if you do, after the upgrade, the system will not return to the previous version, do not worry.
The form is available to all is the typical go to Settings> Backup and Reset> Factory data reset . In some cases you can access the Recovery mode, in which you should select Wipe Data / Factory Reset. In any case, after upgrading, but before the reset, make backups of the data you want to keep.
Software modifications through root access
If you are one of those who have decided to root the smartphone, you will open a lot of modifications to the software on your device doors. But this always requires knowledge and sense of responsibility by the user. Because any inconsistency or conflict, your smartphone may reboot spontaneously or, worse, into a loop of reboots.
The best advice I can give, from my experience, is that not modify to modify. Always make sure you understand what is said, read reviews from other users, can happen bugs that cause reboots or give problems for your everyday use and follows exactly the process to modify the software. If necessary, make sure that recommend Wipes. And although it seems a no-brainer, make sure your smartphone model is compatible with what you want to install.
If despite that your smartphone restarts, try first to enter the Recovery mode and do a Wipe Cache. If this does not work, you have to make a Wipe Data (after saving necessary data, if the system allows it), but if this does not work, you will most likely have to go to the software that some manufacturers have in case of this type (you should install it on your PC, connect your smartphone to your computer and follow the process).
It is not common, but sometimes it can happen that the fault is the operating system itself. It is possible that the arrival of a new version of Android bring in your code that causes a critical error reboots. It is true that the system has to adapt to many different smartphone models, each with its own processor and manufacturer changes, so sometimes a bug sneaks.
For example, I remember the last major update for the Xperia S Android 2.3 to Android 4.0, which was a complete disaster, causing all kinds of errors, or the arrival of 4.4.2 to Galaxy S4 . The only solution to this problem does not depend on you, depends on the manufacturer or Google, that is, that touches you wait for a software update, as happened to the Korean terminal that after an update the problem was fixed.
A further solution may be to install an older version of Android that is compatible with your device officially or, if you’re root, perhaps this will encourage you to try ROM’s cooked.
Although not common, you may have a hardware problem that causes the device to reboot your smartphone. Hopefully you may be able to solve these problems without spending much money.
micro SD card damaged
It is strange that something as small as a micro SD card may have something to do on restarts a smartphone, but not as strange as it may seem. You may in some cases cause problems card read / write, so that errors accumulate until the system collapses and your smartphone restarts. Just in case, try to always have a good micro SD card to minimize problems whenever possible.
If you have applications in the micro SD card can complicate the situation more. To find out if the problem is this removable memory, just spend time using your smartphone without the micro SD and if the smartphone is not restarted at the time, all you have to do is buy a new card (you can also sacrifice a lamb in a game and pray to Cthulhu, but I think that it’ll only cause the apocalypse and your smartphone will continue restarting).
The battery often has much to do with spontaneous reboots of our devices. As with any component, some batteries may leave some lots defective and therefore interfere with the proper operation of your device, if it were not for that surrender as it should. In the event that the battery of your device is removable, such as the LG G5 , get her out of your site and check if there is any area that is somewhat swollen, even the slightest.
If your device is unibody, it is out of warranty and you have skill, you could try yourself access to open the device to check the battery status, otherwise it is best to be the service that is responsible for that task. Should Queste swollen (albeit very little), change it immediately (or the change in service), do not risk, can lead to even more serious problems.
Obviously, these are not the solution to all problems of restarts, but at least it will help rule out many of them. If you have any problems of restarts that has nothing to do with what I explained here, we try to help. Have you ever had one of these problems?
