Alcatel One Touch Fierce Troubleshooting

Phone screen freezes ¶ 

Every few minutes my phone freezes no matter how many times I have restarted it.

Low Battery ¶ 

It is possible for the One Touch Fierce to become unresponsive if the battery drops to an extremely low level. Plug your phone into your computer or wall charger and allow it to charge for at least 20 minutes before using it again.

Not enough free memory ¶ 

Your One Touch Fierce could possibly have no room left in its memory causing it to become slow and unresponsive.

One Touch will not charge ¶ 

No matter how many different angles you try and plug your phone in, it just wont charge.

Charging cable is broken ¶ 

Begin with trying a different or new charging cord.

Bad connection ¶ 

Using a light source, inspect the charging port at the bottom of your device for dirt or lint. Begin with either blowing out the port or using compressed air to do the same.

Battery is broken ¶ 

If nothing else works, then replace your battery. There is a full guide here one our site.

Front screen is shattered ¶ 

You didn't believe all of the videos online and decided to do your own drop test.

Front panel has shattered ¶ 

Most phone screens front glass panel is LCD, and with that, it pushes us to replace it whole as one piece.

No sound from speakers ¶ 

Everything seems to be working fine, but when you go to play your favorite music nothing plays.

Speakers are dirty ¶ 

You should first try to clean your speakers out. Begin by removing the back panel of the One Touch Fierce to reveal the speaker. Then using a can of compressed air blow off the speakers from a safe distance.

Guides to open your device can be found on iFixits website here

Software Malfunction ¶ 

Try your One Touch with another set of headphones or speakers just to make sure that the problem is with the hardware. If this does not work, try restarting your device.

Speaker is broken ¶ 

If nothing has worked your speakers may be broken. In this case, refer to the replacement guide on iFixit's website.

Pictures taken are blurred ¶ 

Photos not coming out right? No problem, it's an easy fix!

Camera is dirty ¶ 

If your pictures are messy, first take an alcohol wipe to clean off smudges on the camera.

Camera is broken ¶ 

If your photos are still blurry or the lens is clearly broken, then you will need to replace your device's camera.

My alcatel one touch fierce xl won't charge no matter what I did.

1. I change chargers multiple time

I change at least 4 times.

2. I just got the phone like 4 months ago so I'm pretty sure the battery is not broken.

3. Please help.

I'm having trouble with my Alcatel One Touch Fierce XL. Every time I change the ringtone on my phone it resets to the factory preset ringtone "Voca" within a day sometimes even sooner. Is there anything I can do to make stop resetting?

I can't hear sound from my phone speakers. I can hear through headphones perfect, but there is no sound without them. I've only had the phone for a couple days, not even a full week. I've blown on the speakers to try to clean them but it didn't work. Please help!

The problem I'm having with my phone is, I connected it to my sister in laws computer via USB cord, to check my sd card. Though I did nothing at all, it somehow corrupted some things in it, and my music app, the one built in, on the playlist it's supposed to show, all the songs disappear and I can't see any of them at all. (Say you play one of the albums, it literally disappears. The song still plays but I kind of would like if the songs would stay in the playlist??)

2nd commentr,now I'm really !#^&@@ cause I have to tak my lifeline(phone) to some repair shop to get the port fixed so I can charge the %#*@ thing,what really sucks is that my phone has to sit in a repair shop until payday,what's the point ibn owning one of these pieces of $@$*? 1st (last month) it was my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime that just stopped working for no apparent reason,thats when I bought this alcatel onetouch fierce XL from used from some Arab vendor(Page West) inSyracuse NYNow it wont charge& I'm stuck with it in the house when my n2 daughters are out at some function probably trying to contact me cause they don't know the issue with my phone yet! I want my money back but being that's probably not going to happen, I bet I wont buy another one!

derek singletary - Reply

My phone seems to be working but the screen is completely unresponsive on touch. i've restarted it, charged it, drained the battery all the way and charged it. It is working, it's just the screen.

I dropped it a couple of times but I didnt think it would drain battery so fast. When I charge it it takes forever to get full, but when it isnt charging the battery drops fast. Anyway to fix this?

abercrombienina - Reply

The only problem I'm having is when I plug my auxiliary cable from my car stereo to my phone and play my music it only plays on the phone. It won't play the music thru my car speakers. At first I thought it was my phone or car stereo, but my girlfriend's daughter bought the same phone and it doesn't work either. My girlfriend's new phone works fine. I read online that quite a few people are also having this problem. I'm hoping there is a solution to this.

William Hill - Reply

I'm having the same issue. I just bought this phone today!

Jermaine Thomas -

instead of using an AUX cord, connect your phone via USB. Make sure your phone is on "Media Transferring". Then, just play your music.

-- Hoped this helps.

My phone suddenly stopped working? It was working perfectly fine and then it turned black. I figured it was just the battery, maybe some dirt got in it. I took out the battery, and put it back in. Nothing. I plugged it into my computer to charge, and all that happened was my computer picked it up as an undetected device, which never happens. No charge light either. I tried unplugging it then plugging it back in, and now nothing at all. not even a detection. Whats wrong with my phone?

My Alcatel one-touch fierce is rebooting itself very 23 seconds! Started malfunctioning today while using GPS, screen turned bright blue, flashed on and off, eventually started this rebooting thing. Tried removing sim card and 128 gig SD card. Nothing. still rebooting constantly. never fully coming on line again.

Your battery is probably swollen. I've experienced the same thing with my Alcatel OneTouch Evolve 2. The battery swelled from water damage.

First1 Gamer -

my Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 wot charge or turn on. I hold the power button and all it does is vibrate for a split second and the screen stays off. Same thing when i plug in the charger. No light indicates charging. Please help. I don't want to buy a new battery. BTW, the battery is not swollen.

First1 Gamer - Reply

My Alcatel One Touch just blinks on and off with the reboot screen that reads "Alcatel One Touch" at the top and "Android" at the bottom. That's it, nothing else. I don't know if it is able to be fixed.
