Solution to Pixel Fold screen issues

Just a few days after the release of the Pixel Fold, many users are experiencing screen issues on the foldable phone. They denounced, among other things, defective pixels, parts of the screen which turn off, screens broken or damaged by small debris.

Fortunately, the American firm has responded to the screen problems reported on the Pixel Fold by offering solutions such as device replacements for consumers affected by screen defects. So if you encounter similar problems, quickly consider contacting Google customer service to possibly exchange the foldable.

Top speaker not working when Pixel Fold is unfolded

A user on Reddit reported that the top speaker on their Pixel Fold didn’t work when the phone was unfolded. He also mentions that when the device is folded, this same speaker works fine.

It is clear that if when the phone is folded the speaker works fine, but does not work when the device is opened, it means that it is not a hardware problem, so how to solve it? We suggest the following tips:

  • Update your Google Pixel Fold phone
  • Make sure your Pixel Fold is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
  • Go to your phone’s settings by tapping the settings icon.
  • Scroll down and tap “System” or “About Phone.”
  • Find and tap “System Update” or “Software Update.”
  • If an update is available, follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the update.
  • Reset audio settings: If none of the above fixes the problem, you can try resetting your phone’s audio settings to default values. This can be done in the phone settings, under the “Sound” section.
  • Go to your Pixel Fold settings.
  • Find the “Sound” or “Audio” section.
  • Look for the option to reset audio settings.
  • Select this option to reset your device’s audio settings.

What to do if the Pixel Fold overheats?

Overheating problems are relatively common on devices used in uncomfortable temperature conditions, or when they are used intensively. If the Pixel Fold overheats for one reason or another, here are some tips to follow to resolve the problem:

  • Use the Pixel Fold in a room temperature environment.
  • Avoid exposing your device to direct heat sources such as the sun or radiators.
  • Turn off the foldable phone and let it cool down for a while before turning it back on.
  • Close background apps and apps that are not needed.

Solutions to Google Pixel Fold Not Charging Issue

If your Google Pixel Fold is not charging properly, it could be due to a faulty charging cable or case, as well as other factors could be the cause of this malfunction. Anyway, to get out of this frustrating situation you can try the following methods:

  • Use a good quality charging cable and a suitable adapter to avoid charging issues.
  • Make sure you’re using a charger that’s compatible with your Pixel Fold, as incompatibilities can cause charging issues
  • Check Google forums and communities for known software bugs affecting your phone’s charging and look for updates to fix these issues.
  • Make sure there is no debris in the charging port or on the charging cord, if so, clean them thoroughly.
  • If despite these steps your phone still isn’t charging, consider consulting a professional or Google customer support for further assistance. In fact, it may be the charging circuit of your Pixel Fold that is damaged, and in this case you must have it replaced by a professional.

How to Fix Battery Life Issue on Pixel Fold

It may happen that your Google Pixel Fold discharges faster than usual. This may be caused by poor handling habits or the device’s battery degrading. To improve the battery life of your Google Pixel Fold, here are some tips to implement:

  • Reduce screen brightness, turn off unnecessary background features, and limit power-hungry apps to extend battery life
  • Identify apps that drain battery quickly and limit their use to save power
  • Update your Pixel Fold
  • Enable your phone’s built-in power saving modes to extend battery life when needed
  • If, despite everything, the battery continues to discharge abnormally, check carefully that your foldable phone does not have a bump on the back or on the screen which could indicate swelling of the battery. If this is the case, go to a repairer as soon as possible to have your battery changed.

What to do when Pixel Fold freezes or doesn’t respond?

  • Perform a force restart by holding the power and volume down buttons for a few seconds to restart the phone and fix temporary issues
  • Make sure your Google Pixel Fold is up to date with the latest software updates
  • If the problem occurs after installing a specific application uninstall that application to see if that resolves the problem.
  • If issues persist, consider backing up your data and factory resetting your Google Pixel Fold to resolve deeper software issues

Fix network, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth issues on Pixel Fold

  • Turn your Pixel Fold off and then back on to see if that fixes the issue.
  • Make sure your phone’s network settings are correct.
  • Forget all Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth you are connected to, then reconnect to see if the problem is resolved
