Why Is Screen Recording Not Working On iPhone
IPhone or iPad screen “glitches”. why is it pressed by itself?
Greetings to everyone and everything! I didn’t want to write the title of the article that way, but it’s very hard to find another word other than “buggy”. It’s very capacious (the mighty Russian language is rich and beautiful!) It describes all Possible problems with the screen, which lives by itself. keyboard buttons are pressed, desktops are scrolled, applications are launched, and all this without your knowledge. And the display itself does NOT respond to pressing!
It would seem that the situation is fantastic and somewhere even mystical, but. in fact, there is nothing strange about it. everything has a logical explanation. Which one? We’ll find out now! But first, let’s decide after what actions the screen of your iPhone or iPad can begin to live its own life, create chaos, run wild and frighten its owner.
There are not so many of these actions:
- Firmware upgrade.
- Physical damage (fall, impact, moisture).
- Display replacement or repair (nuances are possible).
That’s all. Although no, there is another option. none of the above happened, and the screen suddenly began to “glitch”.
Let’s start with the general preparation of the device, which will help eliminate some of the standard moments due to which the touchscreen behaves in such an incomprehensible way:
- If there is film or glass adhered to the device, remove them.
- Wipe the screen thoroughly with a soft cloth. DO NOT use special cleaning fluids, sometimes they can just ruin the oleophobic coating.
- To rule out a software problem and bugs in iOS, do a hard restart of the device.
Yes, everything listed above is quite commonplace, but it can help. However, this is far from all the actions that can be performed in order to adjust the display.
And the first thing you should pay attention to. non-original power supplies and Lighting wires. Although, more likely, it will still go in the wires (the adapter itself, as a rule, does not greatly affect the operation of the device). Here they are. yes, they can spoil the nerves.
Once I myself ran into this and saw how a person’s phone was charged and at the same time periodically lit up, the screen was unlocked, pressed by itself, characters were typed on the keyboard. To be honest, I was very surprised how the iPhone has NOT called anywhere on its own yet.!?
After a short conversation, it turned out that although the person is annoying, he simply does not want to buy the original wire (I rarely use it, and it will do!). The fact that Spontaneous pressing of the display is not yet the worst thing that can happen, and the battery will definitely have to be changed soon, he was NOT interested.
If everything is ok with the charger, then it is worth moving on to the next reason. these are low-quality display modules. There are just a huge number of them, but there is an explanation for this:
- Many models are just wildly popular, for example, the iPhone 5S.
- Original displays are NOT officially delivered to Russia.
- China will help everyone.
Here is a large number of screens of varying degrees of quality. over, they can be installed both during repair and on “new” (in fact, restored, it is not clear where) iPhone. And if you are unlucky, and the screen is set completely “left”, then accidental clicks and other joys of life are provided.
By the way, a characteristic feature of this defect is that after blocking / unlocking the device, everything returns to normal, but for a while, and then starts to “glitch” again. This can manifest itself both immediately after repair / replacement, and after updating iOS. How to proceed in this case? There are two options:
- Set normal display.
- Try to glue film or glass.
The most interesting thing is that some workshops, knowing the quality of the display they install, when replacing the module, “as a gift” stick a sticker on the screen. Often this is done just so that the iPhone or iPad display behaves correctly and does NOT live its own life. Brilliant move! The difference between a good screen and a bad screen is big, and the price of film is small. And everyone is happy: the client thinks that the service is good. he even glued the film, and the workshop itself won in money.
There is another reason that the touchscreen can behave strangely. But here it would be more correct to say that it will not handle pressing at all, and not “just” work in the wrong place.
Perhaps we are talking about the display sensor controller and this is very sad. It can be damaged in the event of a fall, shock, moisture ingress into the gadget and the lack of timely action to remove this very liquid. Only a few service centers have the skill of re-soldering it (the procedure is done in order not to change the entire motherboard as a whole). Well, this also costs money, respectively. of course, cheaper than a complete replacement of the board, but still.
Here is such an unpleasant conclusion at the end of the article.
However, I really hope that all the “glitches” of your iPhone screen will be cured by an elementary replacement of the charger, wire, or, in extreme cases, with a sticker of film or glass. And it will NOT come to a complex repair in a service center. Let it be so!

IPhone display not working: restart the device using a “hard reset
If your iPhone’s touchscreen suddenly stops responding to touches, perform a “hard reset”.
This overloading option is very simple, but the process is different for different iPhone models. In order to restart the iPhone 7, you need to simultaneously press and hold the volume down button and the power button until the Apple logo appears.
To restart iPhone 6s and earlier models, simultaneously press and hold the Home button and the Power button until the Apple logo appears. If the touchscreen is working again after restarting the device, the problem was caused by a software malfunction.
Screen (display) does not work on iPhone: Possible solutions
On very rare occasions, the iPhone touchscreen stops working and responds to touch. You touch the display, but nothing happens. neither tapes, nor swipes” do not lead to the expected result. A freeze of the touchscreen can be caused by several reasons. software malfunction, breakdown of the display or the iPhone itself, etc. Here are some tips to help bring your frozen screen back to life.
The touch screen still doesn’t work?
If your iPhone or iPad’s touchscreen doesn’t work, and none of the above methods helped, we recommend backing up your device’s data and restoring iOS through iTunes. It does NOT hurt to make backups even if you decide to contact the Repair Shop, because the service specialists will probably also begin to reanimate the device with the software recovery process.
If the screen freezes, and the Apple logo is displayed on it, this is already another problem (described in detail in this material), and It is not related to the display. Restoring the device using iTunes on a computer will also help solve this problem.
Screen Freezes on iPhone or iPad: Free Up Device Memory
A freeze on the touchscreen along with application crashes can be caused by insufficient storage space. Check if there is enough free memory on your iPhone or iPad. To do this, go to Settings. Basic. About this device. available. If there are less than 200 megabytes left, iOS performance is noticeably reduced.
We described in detail how to clear memory on iPhone or iPad in this article, suggesting 40 ways.
Screen freezes or does not work on iPhone or iPad: check if the display is intact and remember if the device was dropped
If your iPhone or iPad’s display is cracked, it is likely that this is what caused it to freeze.
If the device was damaged as a result of a fall (external damage may not exist at all), it may stop working completely, or the problem will only affect the touch screen. If your iPhone or iPad is dropped, the internal touchscreen components may be damaged. In this case, it is best to take the device to a service center.
Touchscreen not working on iPhone or iPad: wipe the screen and hands
If the touch screen suddenly stops responding to touch, first of all, thoroughly wipe it and dry your hands. Hold your iPhone up to the light and view from different angles. A build-up of grease or dirt, food stains, hand cream or lotions may be preventing the display from working properly. Take a piece of soft cloth knitting and gently wipe the display with it, remove dirt. For better cleaning, lightly dampen the cloth with water (water must not drip!).
Make sure your fingers are clean and dry. Wash your hands thoroughly, because sticky fingers can be a prerequisite for a frozen touchscreen. Too dry skin of the hands or calluses cannot be the cause of a malfunction, but wet or sticky fingers are another matter.
Screen freezes on iPhone or iPad: uninstall or update Problematic app
Sometimes a touch screen freeze is caused by launching a specific application. In this case, the problem is not connected with the display of the iPhone, but with this program, which freezes and stops responding to “taps” and “swipes”. Typically, pressing the Home button solves the problem. the application closes and you return to the home screen.
In this case, try updating this app first. Open the App Store, check if updates are available for the problematic program, and install them. If after installing updates, the application still freezes, uninstall it from the device and reinstall it. If this does not help, then the problem lies in the program itself, and you can NOT do anything.
The touchscreen STILL not working? Contact the service center
Unfortunately, if the firmware restore does not help to restore the touchscreen functionality, please contact the repair specialists. The problem may be caused by a breakdown of the display module itself or some other component.
IPhone sensor malfunctions
Do not look at the fact that Apple products are of very high quality, iPhone owners often face such a problem as a broken sensor, or, as it is also called, a touchscreen. The sensor may NOT work partially, or completely fail.
A variety of factors can cause the screen to fail. These reasons, first of all, include all kinds of mechanical defects as a result of physical impact on the iPhone. A vivid example is shown above, due to a strong impact when the iPhone 5 is dropped in 98% of cases, the touchscreen will not work.
Manifestations of a malfunctioning sensor on iPhone
- IPhone touchscreen ignores and does NOT respond to touches in certain areas / areas.
- The touchscreen responds with a delay to pressing.
- The iPhone sensor ignores all touches, and does not work at all.
- The phone screen (including the sensor) lives its own life: text is randomly typed, applications close and open on their own (without user intervention), pages of documents are Flipped incorrectly.
What should I do if the sensor stops working? Try the following:
- In case of periodic display of malfunctioning of the touchscreen on the iPhone (the sensor on the phone works, but its work occurs with a large number of failures and errors), you should perform a full reboot of our device. You can do it this way:
- Simultaneously clamp the power button and the Home button;
- We keep the buttons in this state for at least 15-20 seconds
- After that, the iPhone will restart;
- If, as a result, the standard Apple logo appears on the screen. you did everything right.
It may happen that you do all of the above, but you still DO NOT get the result, the faulty touchscreen never “come to life”? Then, most likely, you should think about Visio’s Apple Service Center. The service center staff will help assess the condition of the phone, find out the cause of the problem, and, in which case, replace the screen.
There are times when the screen refuses to work due to deformation or damage to the board. but such breakdowns are quite rare. With such a malfunction, you will have to leave your favorite gadget at the service center for a longer period of time. After all, diagnostics and solving serious problems take longer than a standard sensor replacement.
In order not to ask stupid questions at the service center, remember: all generations of iPhones, from the fourth to the sixth (at the time of this writing, the iPhone 6 Plus is the latest model), are equipped with a touch glass, which is located in the display module and is its Integral part. The display module itself consists of 3 such elements. the top glass (protective), the sensor (touchscreen) and the display itself.
Display module assembly
That is why, if the touchscreen on the iPhone fails, the entire module will have to be changed. And if you break the display, the whole module changes. And if only the upper protective glass is broken. You already guessed what needs to be changed?
Trust iPhone repair only to professionals
Yes Yes Yes! I also saw hundreds of materials on YouTube and searched on Google Step-by-step master classes for repairing or replacing a sensor on an iPhone. I will even say more, I myself have repeatedly broken the screen of my iPhone and following various replacements, I tried to fix everything. In 50% of cases, my attempts ended in success), this despite the fact that I am a radio amateur and not by hearsay familiar with electronics.
That is why I recommend to entrust iPhone repair only to people who professionally maintain Apple equipment, in other words, those who work in official service centers.
By contacting a non-service center or bought a cheap fake quality part for self-installation, you are endangering the device as a whole.
- The part may turn out to be of such poor quality that after a short period of time, you will have to contact a specialist to eliminate even greater damage.
- As for the unscrupulous service centers, everything is not smooth there either. Firstly. you are not given any official guarantees, and secondly. the same cheap parts can be presented as high-quality.
By contacting the official service center of the manufacturing company, you get a guarantee that the work will be done with high quality, your money will NOT go to waste, and the device will serve you properly for a long time. over, smartphones such as those from Apple have their own subtleties, specifics, individual design features and internal structure. a simple mistake when repairing this technique can lead to unpleasant consequences!
Do not forget to read the comments, there is also a lot of useful information. If there is an answer to your question, and there is an answer to later comments, then the answer to your question is contained in the article, count someone else’s time.

To do this, it is enough to forcefully close the writing utility. If you are using an iOS 12 model, you just need to swipe the screen up, starting from the bottom edge of the gadget. After that, the desired application is selected and swiped to the left. To view open tabs on iPhone 8 and earlier, you need to press the Home key twice. After that, we will brush off the utility that you want to close.
It is recommended to forcibly terminate the program if it hangs and does NOT respond. This approach will allow you to quickly solve the problem with the process of recording and saving.
