What triggers a touch screen

We all know that a touch screen is the future of tablet devices. Unfortunately there is still some bad press floating around about how they are prone to damage and so on. The fact is though that there are a number of different ways that you can protect your screen from harm. Today we’ll look at one of these ways, which uses a very neat little trick…

When you touch the screen you are in essence transmitting energy into the screen. This transfer of energy has many potential causes, none of which is particularly harmful, but it does have a few drawbacks. Touch screens can get very hot, and so over time if they get hot enough they can start to warp slightly.

When this happens the display will start to warp out of shape and become less responsive, or it might even crack. If this happens your display won’t work anymore and you’ll need to buy a new screen or get an entirely new device. There is some good news though:

There’s an easy way to avoid damage to your display though. A lot of phones actually have some form of glass protection built in. Even the ones without glass protection will often have some way to protect the screen from damage. But you can activate this glass protection feature on your own, by applying a small layer of glue to the display itself. If this glue doesn’t quite do the trick, then you can use heat to break the glass down.

Heat won’t be used specifically to break down the display, but rather to soften the edges of the display. To apply heat to a display you can either place the display near a light, or plug in a USB cord into a power outlet. You then hold your finger on the screen and move it just enough to warm the surface. The screen will then start to heat up and although it may seem like a negative thing, it is actually a good thing because it will cause the plastic to expand slightly.

When this happens it will reduce the strain on the display, and it will become easier for you to tap the screen without damaging it. Just make sure you always protect your screen properly when doing these functions. This will ensure that your phone lasts for longer and that it doesn’t get damaged as easily. There are other factors that contribute to a display breaking down, including water and some more obscure things, but if you can avoid these then you should be safe.
