Well, even though the Yu Yureka is one of the best options for an Android Smartphone below RS. 10,000 in India, as any other Smartphone, it is not completely fault free. And users have been complaining lately about some issues regarding the Yu Yureka.

And today, we have tried to compile up some of the major issues faced by the Yu Yureka users and also some solutions to these problems.

Below are some solutions to some of the common problems faced by Yu Yureka users in India:

Proximity Sensor Bug in Yu Yureka

One of the most common issues faced by users of Yu Yureka is a bug related to the proximity sensor on the phone. The issue is regarded as the screen remaining dark during calls even if you move the phone away from your ear.

This issue was widely raised in the Yu Online Forums and the Technical Support team has promised for a software fix for this issue. However, some users claim it to be a hardware issue rather than a software based problem.

Users have also claimed that tightening the three screws on the back or else blowing air through the 3.5 mm headphone jack have fixed the issue. However, if you feel the issue being hardware related, then we recommend you to contact the Amazon India Support Team and then get a replacement device.

Issues Regarding the SIM Slot of the Yu Yureka:

Another commonly regarded issue on the Yu Yureka is of the SIM slot of the device. Especially in the secondary SIM card slot. Issues include the device not recognizing or registering network with the SIM card inserted into the secondary SIM card slot.

Adjusting your SIM card to properly align with the SIM reading chip can help solve the issue. If you have cut a standard SIM to fit into the SIM slot of the Yu Yureka, then we would recommend you to get a new SIM from your mobile network provider with pre-cut MicroSIM dimensions.

And if your issue is related to your device not registering your SIM to the respected network, then navigate to Network Settings from your device and try to search for the Mobile Network manually, instead of the preset automatic mode.

Camera Bug:

Some users have also complained about receiving a “Can’t connect to Camera” warning while launching the camera app on their Yu Yureka Smartphone. If you are also facing this issue, then you can fix this issue by going to Applications option in the Settings menu, then clicking on App Info and then clearing the cache.

This tip can also work for any other default app related bugs too.

Final Words:

Well, that were a few of the most commonly faced issues by the users of Yu Yureka in India and their solutions. We will be constantly updating this article with more and more commonly regarded issues related to the Yu Yureka.
