5 problems on Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and how to fix them


Redmi Note 3, despite the fact that is thought as a vfm mobile, it has tremendous affordability and computing power, is not without some problems. OF course some problem are caused from MIUI itself, specially if you are running developers edition. But Xiaomi is trying to correct them and we are here to help you overcome these problems, till a final solution is found ,


  1. GPS problems when using Google Maps

    Google is always trying to make the app it supports better and better. Google Maps many time had problems with giving the correct directions or giving the exact point you are. With the last versions, this problems seems to have been solved. However, if you’re experiencing problems with your Redmi Note 3, there are some necessary steps that you should follow. For starters, check to see if your GPS is working correctly with other applications. If it is, then go back to Google Maps and check the permissions settings in your mobile, to allow for Google Maps to track your location using the GPS chip present inside your phone. Also check if it is set to the highest level of precision. If this still does not help you, you must perform a hard reset. If the problem persists, then try to change rom, either different version of the same rom or go to stable.


  2. Redmi Note 3 has problem recognizing your microSD card

    Now days,  mobiles do not need a FAT32 formatted microSD, since they can easily recognize NTFS and exFAT. However, if your Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 for some reason does not want to recognize your card after you place it inside, then for start, perform an error run on the card to locate any bad sectors. This can be done only on a Windows PC. If you still, after retrying the card have problems recognizing, try formatting it to FAT32 and then insert it inside your Redmi Note 3. If the card is still unable to detect the storage card, check firstly if you can in an other mobile if it is recognized and if it is, then you should contact customer support as quickly as possible and ask for the mobile to be checked.


  3. Redmi Note 3 cannot connect to any Wi-Fi network

    This is a problem, unfortunately,  is common to many mobiles. For start check your router, if other devices can connect to your network. IF everything is ok with your network, you must do a hard reset on your smartphone, and we believe that your mobile will once again find connectivity and connect to your Wi-Fi network.


  4. Not being able to get out of ‘Child Mode’ in MIUI 7 and after

    ‘Child Mode’ is a unique software mode that appeared in Xiaomi’s MIUI 7. This mode allows you to restrict the usage of their Note 3. It is done if we wont to give our mobile to a adolescent and we want to prevent numbers from being dialed by mistake or use apps that may charge us. Unfortunately, the issue arises when you go into Child Mode, and accessing the Settings app seems impossible. There is a fix for this problem, that could use if you get in problem. Long press the Lock button, and click on Airplane Mode. After that, open your web browser to access any website you like, it doesn’t matter. Doing this will show you of course an error since you are in Airplane Mode, but in the same time it will also pop up the Network settings option. When you see this option appear in front of you, you can go to the Settings tab for Child Mode and turn it off


  5. Overheating problems and how to correct them

    The metal unibody of Redmi Note 3 is somewhat responsible for making you feel that the smartphone overheats since metal is an excellent conductor of heat. But this is not the only reason you might feel the heat. Snapdragon 650 is not the most efficient chipset in the world, which will explain why it generates more heat, particularly the Cortex-A72 cores. However, there are some ways with which you can reduce the overheating problems

    It is better not to use your mobile when you are charging it. The heat caused from the charging process with the heat from the use, can rise mobile inside temperature really high! Don’t let so many apps run in the background The Redmi Note 3 has a lot of RAM to use, but there are some apps that while running in the background, consume the available processor’s resources, thus increasing that temperature. Try to turn-off unnecessary services and connectivity features that you do not require. These could be like GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. Try to use them only when you need them. Also some case some times do not help in getting cooler the mobile, so try to find only of good quality.

      Your contacts must be backup-ed either at your Mi account or your Google account, if you have enable the option at your Mi account. But it is strange to loose all contacts. What software upgrade you did and you lost everything?

          If you are using a rom installed from some eshop and not an original, 99% is full of bloatware and 9 out 10 times is the reason of many problems. Accidently I happen to be moderator at the Greek forum of Xiaomi-miui, so I know what I’m asking you 😉

  9. My redmi note 3 worked fine for the past 8 months. but yesterday all of a sudden it stop working–the charging light on the upper left was off even during charging. First I thought may be the battery was bad or dead. But when I press and hold the power button, the ” mi ” will show on the screen but will be off for a few second, and no images will come on screen at all. I re-tried many times, just can not get images on the screen. The sequence was : “mi ” appeared on the screen; then it disappeared ; the screen turned black and kept on black…

    Could you help me ? Thanks.
