I purchase my fairphone2 in early 2017. I recently came up with an issue that seems to come from the battery not charging anymore.
The battery in my phone was recently purchased (march 2021). Sunday I wasn’t able to charge it anymore, and I am unable to turn it on anymore (I guess because powering it up temporarily requires more energy than what can be delivered by the current).
When the phone is charging and the notification led is blinking red, it is not possible to do anything.
The red led eventually turns red (not blinking anymore) => I can see the screen with a virtual battery charging (filling with blue, the background is a picture of the fairphone when the shell is removed). If I try to turn it on, I can see the begging of the booting screen with “FAIRPHONE” in the middle, but then it stops and the notification led starts blinking again.
I tried several chargers, power sockets… I even changed the battery for the old one I was using (before march). It was still working but after 2 days the old battery started behaving just like the new one.
I guess the excepted behavior is the notification led to be orange when the phone is charging and if the energy supply is beyond some level.
Can anyone help me understanding what’s happening to my phone ?
