Fix Power Button Delays Screen Wake Up Samsung Phone

power button delays

Good day friends, today I want to talk about the Samsung phone power button delays screen wake-up, and how to fix it.

The delayed screen wake in Samsung mobile phones is getting very common in recent days. I have experienced it several, and I have found the cause of it in my own case as well as the solution.

I hope my solution work for you too.

At first, when it first occurred, I taught its a virus, I had to download several applications from the Google Playstore to scan my galaxy phone, but the problem still was not solved.

I also updated my phone’s Android software, and every app installed on my phone, but that also didn’t help.

I uninstalled all the apps on my Samsung Galaxy device; still, the screen delay wasn’t solved. At this point, I was getting furious and frustrated.

How can a phone I bought in less than three months develop such a fault, I had to contact the Samsung support team at a point via the Samsung member app and explain the problem to them. They ask me to update the software, something I have already done.

Since all these trials didn’t solve the screen delay issue, I concluded that a factory reset would do the magic. So I decided to reset my phone back to factory mode. But the problem persists.

At this point, I concluded that the phone is not in good health, that it may be a hardware issue, and nothing can be done about it. I went as far as wanting the change the phone panel, but the cost was what made me not to.

The solution came to me after I had given up, and planned to give out the phone. I fixed my screen delay via this process. You won’t believe what the problem was.

On four occasions I have fixed this problem on my phone and people’s phone. I discovered that they all are surrounded by the same problem – a bad SD card.

The memory card had been the problem all this while. It’s either the sd card is substandard, or it’s not supported by your phone.

The memory card may even be working and still causing the issue without being corrupt.

Once you encounter such a problem, the first thing to do is to restart your device to see if that will help.

If the phone reset didn’t work, then removing your phone SD card will fix the screen delay problem.
