Since iPhone and iPad users today depend much on the touchscreen, any issue with the screen may spoil the fun. In such a situation, how to deal with screen-not-responding issues has arisen much of users’ concern. When there is a problem with the screen, you may first visit Apple Authorized Service Provider, but actually you can try to fix it by yourself. In this article, we will show you how to fix iPad screen-not-responding issues
First of all, you should make sure your fingers are clean and dry because the screen may not respond due to moisture or dirt. And after that you should clean the iPad screen. It may sound easy to do, but there are several points which you should know:
1、Unplug your iPad from the power source and switch it off before you clean the screen in case a permanent damage should be caused.
2、Use a soft cloth to wipe the screen instead of a towel or something that can scratch the screen.
3、Don’t spray the cleaners directly to the screen. Spray it on the cloth instead and wipe it gently.
4、Don’t press the screen too hard.
Third, remove screen protector or case to make sure the unresponsiveness is not caused by the protector or case. As we know, if the quality of these accessories is not good, the touch of fingers won’t be detected. After you remove them, try to touch the screen and see if the issue is solved.
That done, let’s start the next step: charge your iPad using the original charger. Due to the uniqueness of Apple, accessories that are not original or the ones that don’t have an MFi certificate are potentially destructive (MFi is abbreviation of Made For iPhone/iPad/iPod, a licensing program from Apple that is addressed to developers of hardware and software peripherals). After charging your iPad with the original cable and charger, test the touchscreen and see how it responds.
Next, restart your iPad and update, reinstall or delete the app that may have caused the problem, because sometimes the using of some apps may cause unresponsiveness.
However, if all those are useless, you should put the iPad in DFU mode and then restore it. Here are the steps:
1、Connect the iPad to Mac/PC using lightning cable and operate iTunes
2、Keep pressing the power and home buttons until iPhone restarts
3、Let go of the power button but keep holding the home button for about 5 seconds. If the screen remains black, but the iTunes detects your iPad, you have successfully put your iPad into DFU mode and you can restore it now.
Well, above are possible methods for dealing with screen-not-responding problems for iPad, I wish your problem can get solved soon!
