The display of my Fairphone 3 just fell off my phone! And is, of course, not possible to use any more. Has anyone else experienced this? The touch screen (glass plate) and a thin metal plate attached to it, came off in one picece, and the “cobber tape” that apparently connects it to the phone, got teared right off. I have noticed that the black surface under the glass screen has looked a little “worn” around the edges lately, but the display has been working fine. Maybe this was actually the glue holding the glass that was gradually dissolving?
I searched the FP webshop for spare parts, but the Display for FP3 is listed as Out of stock. What to do then?
I will of course contact FP Support when it opens, but this is really annoying!
This did not happen related to disassembling, I have never disassembled the display. It just fell off. I see now that the post linked by Meaghan discussed a lot of cases where the display have come loose in the exact same way. The only difference is that my display fell completely off, so the connection got broke. This must be a weakness in the type of glue used in the display of FP3?
