All Windows PCs have a relatively simple solution to repair PDFs. The good thing about this method is that it doesn’t require you to install any program to work. Instead, the operating system itself will do the trick. How it works is, just restore the file to a previous version, so that the error preventing you from opening the damaged document disappears. The steps to follow are:
  1. First, it’s essential to have backup copies of your PDFs.
  2. Once you do, right-click on "Windows Explorer".
  3. Search for "Properties" and then go to "Previous Versions".
  4. All the old versions of your backed-up PDF will appear on the screen. Click on "Open" and "Restore".
  5. You’ll now have a version of the PDF from before the error!

On the internet, you’ll find a fair number of “fix PDF” apps available, both online and as downloadable software. Just search for "repair PDF" in your favorite browser and you’ll see the available options. These are usually easy-to-use programs that work as follows:
  1. First, of course, open the chosen application.
  2. Afterward, upload the damaged document.
  3. Find the "Repair" button and click on it.
  4. Name the repaired file and choose its destination. Voilà!

The Google Play Store offers many apps that let you recover damaged PDFs on Android devices. Search for "repair PDF" to see the tools to choose from, and then just follow these common steps:
  1. Open the chosen app and, then, the damaged file.
  2. Click on the "Repair" or similar button to start the recovery process.
  3. Once repaired, save the resulting document to the desired location.

On iPhone or iPad devices, the problem of not being able to open PDFs mainly occurs when you upgrade to iOS 13. This error has been caused by an iOS bug that Apple will almost certainly fix. Meanwhile, one of the tricks to open broken PDFs is to close the app that doesn’t allow you to visualize it and then reopen it. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Double-click on the "Home" button on your device. You can also swipe left to right on the screen until you reach "Multitasking".
  2. Find the app that won’t let you open the PDF document and launch it with your finger up.
  3. After a short time, open the application again.
If this doesn’t work, you’ll have no choice but to download a “recover PDF” app and follow the steps therein. You can find any number of these in the Apple App Store. Just look for an option that has lots of good reviews.
