Problems encountered on the Galaxy A05s

Solutions to Galaxy A05 problems

Galaxy A05 or A05s screen flicker resolution

The screen flickering of the Galaxy A05 or A05s, beyond being a problem that affects the display and readability of the screen, is an anomaly that can degrade the eyesight of the owner of the device. It can be resolved with a simple installation of Android firmware update (One UI) and attempting to restart the device or force it to restart.

What to do if there is a weak or no network signal on the Galaxy A05?

Network problems can have several sources, they can be linked sometimes to your operator, sometimes to your network settings, or to the absence of updates, or even due to recent updates.

Solutions to phone carrier related network issues on Galaxy A05

If your Galaxy A05 or A05s phone was originally purchased from an operator and they have not opened the network settings to accommodate SIM cards other than their own, then it is quite normal to not be able to use another chip inside. On the other hand, if you receive a weak network signal or even no signal from this same operator, we strongly advise you to contact the help center of this company for better guidance on the issue.

If your Galaxy A05 was initially locked to a network and you unblocked it, then a system update may also have changed the software environment of the Galaxy A05 and therefore disabled or cleared the network unlock codes allowing them to connect to another operator.

You can also try the following approaches to try to fix network issues on your Galaxy A05 device:

Clear the device cache (Be careful! only do this if you are used to this type of manipulation)

Wiping the cache from the partition of a Galaxy A05 or A05s will fix cache-related issues on the device. However, it is an operation that should not be taken lightly. You can erase the partition cache of your Galaxy A05 by following the following steps:

  • Turn off your A05.
  • Hold down Volume Up and Power keys.
  • Then release the Power key when the Samsung logo appears (the “Installing system update” option will be displayed for about 30-60 seconds before moving to the Android system recovery menu options) .
  • Continue the process by holding down the volume up key until the recovery menu appears.
  • Use the volume buttons to navigate to “Wipe cache partition” and press the “Power” button to select this option.
  • Wait for the process to complete, then select “Reboot system now” to restart your phone.
Reset Galaxy A05 network settings

As we listed above, poor network settings can be the cause of a weak signal or its absence, and one of the ways to fix this problem is to reset the network settings of the device . To achieve this on the Galaxy A05:

  2. Find and tap “Global Management”.
  3. Select “Reset” from the options provided.
  4. Then choose “ Reset network settings ”.

Missing or outdated updates can cause network damage to a phone. This is why it is strongly recommended to always check for new Android or software updates and install them.

Factory reset your Galaxy A05

Factory reset will erase all data on your phone, including apps, settings, and personal files. Therefore, it is highly recommended to backup your important data before performing the reset. If the backup is done, here is how you can reset your Galaxy A05 or Galaxy A05s to factory settings:
