When the screen flickers on your Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus you have to find a quick workaround. You’re using a high-end and super-fast Android-based device so such issues shouldn’t be experienced at all.
Now, the screen can flicker because of a hardware problem, though that’s quite unlikely. Of course, in that situation you will have to take your phone back to service as soon as possible. And hopefully the warranty will cover the repairing process.
On the other hand, in most situations the flickering screen is related with a software glitch. And, of course, such issues can be easily and quickly solved by applying dedicated troubleshooting solutions.
Thus, let’s head towards the actual methods that can help you address these problems.
How to fix the screen flickering issue on Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
Method 1: force-reboot your S10+
Minor software problems as well as minor firmware glitches can be addressed with just a simple force-reboot. That process is going to refresh the virtual memory and it’s going to reload built-in apps, which, in our case, might be causing the screen to flicker.
- Press and hold the Volume Down key.
- Keep holding that button and while still doing it, press and hold the Power key too.
- Keep both button pressed for 10 or 15 seconds just until the reboot process is initiated.
- That should be all.
Method 2: reboot into safe mode
In safe mode you can tell whether the problem is caused by a recently installed app or not. Once safe mode is enabled the third party apps and the processes that are related with it will be disabled. So, if the screen isn’t flickering anymore it will mean that the issue is caused by a third party tool. And in that situation you will then have to remove recently installed apps one by one until the malfunction is addressed.
Thus, go ahead and access safe mode on your Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
Method 3: Clear system cache
- Power off your phone: press and hold the Power key until the switch off process is completed or press the Power key once and choose ‘power off’.
- Next, reboot recovery mode on your S10 Plus.
- In recovery use Volume rocker keys to scroll between options and the Power button to select something.
- Pick ‘wipe cache partition’ along with ‘wipe dalvik cache’.
- When done, go back to main menu of recovery.
- Select ‘reboot system now’.
- That’s all.
Method 4: Master-reset your phone
As always, a hard reset can solve the more complex software related issues. During this operation everything that wasn’t there from day one will be erased. Shortly said, you will manage to restore your smartphone to its factory state.
That’s why it’s important to backup your personal data first – otherwise you will lose your contacts, call logs, texts, images, videos, audio files, market apps and similar other personal stuffs.
