Safe Mode on LG Optimus Zone 3 – Do you have a problem with your LG Optimus Zone 3? Does it overheat or the battery draining out faster than before? What could cause this kind of issue, especially if the phone didn’t show any sign of issue before? The real cause of this issue could be anything and it may take time to pinpoint the real cause. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do something about it.
Hear this out. How many apps that you installed in your LG Optimus Zone 3? Apps are a great thing to have because it gives us access to do all sort of thing that was not possible before. It allows us to listen to music, read an ebook, edit a photo and so on. Some apps work better than the rest and some are pretty useless. Some of the apps may not work coherently with the phone system or perhaps it was simply a bad app.
This is where you need to look for. One of those apps that you installed in your phone may cause the issue in the first place. But how do you know if one of those apps that give you trouble? Boot the phone into Safe Mode.
That is the answer to your question because, in Safe Mode, none of those 3rd party apps will run. When you boot the phone into Safe Mode and you find none of those issues, it is your clue that there is something wrong with one of those 3rd party apps and you need to find out and eliminate it.
To boot LG Optimus Zone 3 into Safe Mode, you can choose one between these two methods. Use the first method, which works great if the phone is responsive. Just follow the guide below:
- Press and hold “Power button” until “Power menu” appear on the screen.
- Tap and hold the “Power Off” option.
- New options “Restart in Safe Mode” will display on the screen.
- Tap “Turn On” to enter it.
- Wait until the reboot process to complete.
In some cases, the issue that plagues the phone is too severe. You may find that the phone didn’t respond, stuck or frozen. It means you can’t use the above method. Instead, use the second method below:
- Power off the device. If you can’t power it off, pull out the battery and put it back on.
- Press and hold “Power button” and “Volume Down” button together.
- Keep pressing until “System Recovery” menu appear on the screen.
- Use Volume button to move between available menu and highlight “Safe Mode” option.
- Press Power button to select the option.
- Wait for the device to reboot into Safe Mode.
In Safe Mode, run through the apps and phone function. If everything work just as it should be and none of that issue that plagues the phone while it runs on standard operating mode show up, then you can put the blame on one of those 3rd party apps you have.
