Screen problems

If there are colored horizontal lines on the screen, that's maybe because of system failure. Firstly, backup the data on your phone, go to Settings - Additional setting / privacy - Backup & reset to factory reset your ROME X. Go to UMI forum to download UMI ROME X phablet's ROM firmware and then flash the phablet if the factory reset doesn't help.

If there are parallel vertical lines on the display, the most probable cause is the flexible flat cable is loose, which needs to be fixed at professional phone repair shop or the factory.

To solve the problem, you can try:

Enter System setting - Developer option - Display update, choose Close, close Auto brightness, then restart your phone.

Backup the data on your phone, then go to Settings - Additional setting / privacy - Backup & reset to factory reset your ROME X.

Download the ROM firmware at UMI forum to flash the ROME X smartphone.

Go to local fixing store or send the product to its seller to repair the phone if above solutions don't help.
