I’ve had my FP2 for a year and I’m having some issues with it turning on.
Sunday Jan 5 - Went for a hike and the phone got a small amount of water on it. It wouldn’t turn on for an hour but then it did and was working normally.
Tuesday Jan 14 - Turned off at some point overnight and wouldn’t turn on despite it still being around 70% battery. I tried it with multiple charges at power outlets and in a computer with no charge and charging light. Approx. three hours later it turned on by itself, got to the Fairphone loading screen and flickered to a purple stripy glitchy screen and turned off. A few minutes later it turned on and was working with about 50% battery.
Wednesday Jan 15 - All good
Thursday Jan 16 - Turned off at some point overnight. Turned it on, it had about 40% but turned off after 5 minutes. Haven’t been able to turn it back on since. Plugging it into multiple chargers hasn’t done anything and no charging light appears. I have tried some suggestions from this thread (FP2 Won't turn on or charge - See first post for troubleshooting) including removing the battery and the screen (no change), and removing the battery, plugging in the charger and then putting the battery back in (red charging light flickered on for 30 seconds then went off). Then, right before I was about to post here, I tried turning it on again and it worked and was charging.
Sunday Jan 19 - It had been working fine for three days then it turned off randomly. When I went to turn it back on the Fairphone screen came up then faded away slowly with a purple tinge to it. Since then, I’ve tried the same things as before but it hasn’t stayed on longer than a few second.
tl;dr - Possible water damage, phone won’t stay on.
Any ideas? Is it water damage from two weeks ago coming back with a vengeance? Thanks for the help!
