Screen Problems on OnePlus Phones: How to Fix Them

No smartphone is saved from encountering problems on the screen, that essential element to use the applications and all its functions. In the case of OnePlus mobiles we find several errors that can make us lose our papers and get desperate, although luckily most of them with some skill and some indications according to what we need we will be able to solve.

Screen Problems on OnePlus Phones

Something we should always keep in mind is that the screen problems in OnePlus are usually linked to software versions that have been released without polishing, so it is very important to access Settings> System> System updates and check that we have the latest version with corrections. If this has not been enough, go ahead and see for yourself how to fix those errors, inviting to try other solutions even if it does not really correspond to your situation.

Color problems on OnePlus phones

On more than one occasion we have seen all the alarms jump due to color problems on the OnePlus screens, although in most cases with an update as we mentioned before it is solved, we will try to remedy it until the final update achieves it. In addition, in other cases the problem may be only before our eyes and not those of others.

Green screen in OnePlus

Both the OnePlus 8 Pro and others of the brand have been engulfed in criticism for a greenish tone that prevents being able to use the phones normally. Faced with this problem, the remedies that we must apply beyond an OxygenOS update are in the color effects that we will explain below. The other remedy we have left is based on the guarantee, making use of it so that the company gives us a solution as soon as possible.

Calibrate the screen with OxygenOS

From the settings section of our OnePlus mobile we have access to the OxygenOS screen calibration with which to remedy our problems. We just have to follow the path Settings> Display> Screen calibration and we can carry out the steps that we explain.

By default OnePlus mobiles come in intense or natural mode, a more subdued hue that fails to highlight the most vivid colors, but we can manually choose the advanced mode with which we have the option of repairing the AMOLED screen of the OnePlus . In its advanced settings the option appears to take full advantage and then calibrate to our liking between colder or warmer tones.

Color effects on photos and videos

To finish adapting the screen to our liking we find an added option with the intention of intensifying the colors in our mobile in the contents. The process is very simple, we only have it in Settings> Display> Effects of intense color and we activate it. We will notice a big difference from having it activated to deactivating it when we see images or videos from the gallery.

The brightness in OnePlus is low

Depending on the model we have, we can find a low brightness when we are in full sunlight on OnePlus phones. This does not have a first solution based on the settings, where entering the Screen we will be able to activate the automatic brightness or deactivate it according to the situation we are in. By default it is always better to have it activated so that when we are in the sun we do not have problems to access the menu.

Remove DC Dimming option

One of the great novelties of OxygenOS 10 is the possibility of enjoying the CC screen dimming that manages to limit screen brightness by reducing the intensity of the screen. Although this can be very useful when we use the phone at night, it can also be a problem on the OnePlus screen during the day. To deactivate this option we just have to enter Settings> Utilities> OnePlus Laboratory.

My OnePlus screen does not detect my finger

When trying to use the screen of our mobile we can find that the movements only work sometimes or that it is not precise, this can come from the cold in high temperatures or even from gloves, but if this is not our situation, we have a problem real. To try to solve it without having to resort to the guarantee we have two methods that we explain.

Calibrate the screen of OnePlus phones

The first thing is to calibrate the entire screen, getting it to regain all its capabilities when our finger slides the notification bar or for any other need in OnePlus smartphones . In this case, what we will do is use an app to calibrate screens that is very easy and intuitive to use.

Before starting to use it we will place the mobile on a table with good stability and then with our fingers we will press in the areas indicated or we will repeat the movements shown. When we complete it, the process will be saved and we will be able to see for ourselves how it works best.

Remove the screen protector

Among the many screen protectors that we come across, some may be too thick or may not fit well on OnePlus screens and thus causing it to be unable to comply. In this situation, removing the protector may be the only solution we need, a process that takes little time and will make it clear that next time the protector must be different.

OnePlus ambient screen errors

Although we cannot have the always on display screen for now on OnePlus phones, what does exist is the ambient screen option with which we can touch the screen to see the notifications and the time. This also works when lifting the mobile, but in any case the screen does not work correctly , to solve it we can only resort to wipe cache.

This process is complex and we only recommend doing it after having extracted all the files from your mobile if you don’t want to accidentally lose them forever.

  • The first thing we do is turn off the phone.
  • Then hold down the volume down and power buttons until you see the OnePlus logo.
  • Then we select English language.
  • We tap on wipe data and cache.
  • Then we play again in wipe cache.
  • Now Yes to confirm the action.
  • Finally when you have finished click on reboot.

When turning on and configuring our mobile we enter from Settings> Screen> Ambient screen to the option and activate them.
