Fairphone3 unresponsive

Fairphone, which had plenty of charge, was unresponsive the next day. Pressing power button has no effect. Connection of power cable elicits no response. Completely dead. I have removed battery and re-inserted to no effect.

There have been a number of similar reports recently and I have seen some cases myself. From the symptoms it may be a problem similar to these:

in which case you’ll need to

  • take steps to identify that the problem is with the main board : for help with this if possible, look for a Fairphone Angel in your area (see fairphoneangel )
  • if so, you might consider attempting a reflowing as described here
    or enlist the help of a qualified repair shop (including Fairphone themselves but not under guarantee), but make sure you agree to the terms beforehand.
