Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

31 Answers

My iphone screen got zoom in and i can't fix it!

It just happened all by itself. My phone was never dropped or anything like that..I received a call this afternoon, and as I got my phone to answer the call, notice the screen was zoom in..and i had a hard time scrolling down to answer the call.. It's so frustrating! I tried the phone reset, by pressing the power button and the menu button at the same time but it didnt do anything. My husband tried the restore button on itunes, it did work but when he sync the back-up memory to the phone...the problem came back..so that means if i want this fix i will loose all my contacts, pics, videos....that sucks big time!!!!! I thought 3GS is so much better...but hell NO!

    If this happens on your iphone 5: 1) Tap your screen with three fingers simultaneously 2) Do Settings-->General--->Accessibility-->Zoom (Turn it off)

    Brilliant! Worked for me straight away. This is my first iphone and I've only had it 3 weeks. When I first got it, I read up on everything there was to know about iphones, including the three finger tap!! But, alas, I obviously read too much and put my brain on technology overdrive, because I forgot the 3 finger tap. Many many thanks. :-))))

As mentioned by others: double tapping with three fingers turns this feature on and off. What's not been mentioned is that this is a feature of universal access, which adds features to allow those with limited sight or hearing to use the iPhone. This is an option. It defaults off and had to have been turned on by the user for this feature to have been activated. You can turn it on and off at the bottom of the main sync screen in iTunes.

I had this problem.I took mine to Best Buy (that's where I have my insurance and bought my Iphone). Nothing else i tried worked and I tried EVERYTHING. No one there had seen it before. But I did read on a site that you can double tap the screen with three fingers and that it would go back to normal (it did not say whether to have your fingers together or apart when tapping?) anyway you could try this first before a factory restore, Sorry if the double tapping does not work like I said the factory restore fixed mine before I read that. If you do a factory restore- sync your phone before taking it in, I do know the phone does function in Zoomed mode, if you hold a finger at the corner of the phone-> hold your finger in the corner you are trying to get it to scroll to- the screen will glide down or up to see more icons you want to locate hope this helps you- S Blackwell

This just happened to me and I spent a day first doing a reset, then a restore, then a restore via iTunes before driving to AT&T who told me it was an Apple problem, and then finally calling Apple tech support. The three finger double tap described in the many posts above cured the zoom problem. Why, why, why doesn't a reset or restore fix this stupid problem?!?!?
On a 3GS phone you can permanently disable this useless feature by going into Settings>General>Accessibility and turning the Zooming feature Off.

Hello
You have tried the reset which is a good thing, but nothing happened. Can you try once again: "Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears"
Hop this helps

Thank you! Three taps, simple! Sooper! Great that Apple are thinking about accessibility, not so great that I had no idea what was going on...or how to fix it... (Perhaps compounded by the fact I'd spent an hour or two in the pub before it zoomed in y'day and was therefore a little more confused than normal!) I love Google - one simple search and one happy lady.

By turning off thee accessability option you cure the real problem
on a 3GS version.

When the main screen is activated occaisionally the Phone locks up usually at the most inconvenient time.

The clue was when I was able to reactivate the phone the Icons on the main screen were only slightly larger than normal not as large as the zoom mode and when this happened the phone would lock
The next time the icons were normal and no problems.

Since I turned of the zoom option I have had no more problems
of this kind.

There's a little more to the zoom-function than just turning it on and off: after the double-tap don't lift you fingers from the screen. Now you can zoom in or out by sliding your fingers up and down. While zoomed in you can move the zoomed-in area with three fingers. Suddenly the problem turned into a (somewhat) useful feature.

Once it is zoomed in you play heck moving the screen. What I have done before hearing about the three finger thing is to try to power it off. Takes a while and is frustrating. Besides if Apple is so good why not fix the problem. It usually never happens at predictable times. Love the phone do not like the little problems.

    If the three finger double tap does not seem to work, or only causes a minor zoom, you need to adjust the amount of zoom by using the three finger tap and drag method. See the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUfdz4mGW...
    for how to do this. Once you learn the method you can set the zoom for whatever level you wish.

Yes you can zoom back to normal with the three finger double click but WHY does it happen in the first place and who is this feature useful for. You can barely operate the phone.

All I did was pick up the phone and suddenly this rediculous zoom. I think its one hell of a big bug myself.

Never trust a corporation.

My Iphone 3 has suddenly got this magnified screen and I cant reduce it?? Its my work phone and need it fixed FAST...can you help??


That is a setting, just take three fingers and double tap your screen. Now change your settings so that this doesn't happen again. Go to settings, click on general, then Accessibility, Zoom, then turn it off. Now, this should not happen again.

My son was playing with it for a few minutes and it's stuck in zoom mode. I've tried restarting it..


You are in Zoom mode,its a feature of the phone. With 3 fingers, just double tap the screen.

To prevent this happening again, go to Settings>Accessibility and switch the Zooom function off.

Iphone screen backlight not working. What to do?


If the backlight on your Iphone is dead, you need to replace it. This does usually happen if it received a sharp drop or exposed to liquid.

Iphone 3G screen not working after dropping. Not


It sounds like you have some internal screen damage, your LCD may be damaged or your digitizer. A professional will need to take your phone apart and determine the cause.

My Iphone is stuck on zoom. The lock screen and the springboard are zoomed in on and will not zoom out. I've tried reseting, rebooting, and have done the restore process, but none of it works. I can still...


while your iphone still on zoom, double tap the screen with 3 fingers, make sure 3 fingers, it will bring it back to normal display. I don't know how the zoom feature can get turn on but if you want to turn off this feature then go to Setting --> general --> Accessibility --> set the zoom off. hope this will help

Iphone home screen zoom in


This happens when you accidentally put the iphone in zoom mode, which is one of the "accessibility" features under the "settings" icon. Most likely the user accidentally "double tapped" the screen with three fingers. This is what launches zoom mode. To change the zoom, double tap the screen with three fingers and drag the three fingers down or up the screen. To avoid this recurring, you can go to Settings>General>Accessibility>Zoom. Then set the Zoom feature to "off".

Iphone screen keeps zooming in


Go to (settings > general > Accessibility > Zoom) and click turn off zoom. Warning: getting around to just do this is a royal pain in the ***. Be patient.
