BLU Dash D140 has broken SD card slot ¶
Very rare, but sometimes the SD card slot on your phone could be malfunctioning. If you have a functioning SD card you can do this by putting in the SD card in another phone to see if the phone reads it. If the phone reads it, then try it in the BLU Dash JR D140. If it is not read try blowing on the SD card and slot and trying again. It's recommended you get hold of BLU customer service if the slot is broken. If you're under warranty BLU will cover it!
BLU Dash JR D140 opens apps slowly ¶
Opening apps has been taking forever.
BLU Dash D140 has a virus or is bogging out ¶
Usually a full reset with these types of phones recovers stock speeds because the phone has more space to work with and cleans any bugs in the phones!
- Hold down the home button, volume-up button, and power button simultaneously for 15 seconds until you see the Blu logo screen pop up and then you release all the buttons.
- Once the Blu logo screed fades and the broken Android logo shows up, push the power button to open the recovery options.
- Use the volume-down button to navigate.
- Go down until you hit "wipe data/factory reset" and then press the volume up button to select it.
- Then select "yes."
- Once the process is done, it will boot up and will be ready for use.
BLU Dash D140 is not fully charged ¶
If the device is working slow, it is common for this to happen at low percentage battery life. Fully charge the phone and see if the speeds increase.
BLU Dash D140 lacks space ¶
The biggest SD card available for this device is 32gb. SD cards are like hard drives for phones. Installing many apps can slow down the phone, adding a bigger storage creates more space to work with.
BLU Dash D140 battery won't charge ¶
The battery won't charge, gets really hot, or loses charge right away when you unplug it.
BLU Dash D140 loses charge quickly ¶
If your battery can't hold its charge anymore and drains extremely fast, you might be able to save it by doing a full recharge. You'll need to completely drain the battery for this to work, so once it reaches zero percent, keep turning it back on until it doesn't even have enough power to boot. Now, plug in the power cord (to a power outlet) and let the battery charge for at least 48 hours.
