This one Had worked before until yesterday when nothing seemed to work anymore and important Note: The ‘head’ of The cable is sort of broken/ not straight and I had to put it on and angle to get IT charger.
The reason for removing the battery is to ensure the phone is off before trying to charge it, as in the very poor state when the phone screen is black it may be hard to tell if it is locked, off or ‘really’ off.
Bad Update: After trying again, my USB entrance and Cable started to smell like Smoke and the Cable got really hot ._. As you can imagine I am now really clueless and my question Is: If I dont get this fixxed, how can I get a new FP3-Part (top module or what is IT?) to COSTA RICA??
At this point I would stop using the USB port to avoid potential further damage to the phone.
To get by for the moment, there are external universal smartphone battery chargers, here’s an example … External universal charger fit for Fairphone batteries … but there are many more of them, you just have to make sure that the charging contacts are slim enough to make contact with the Fairphone 3/3+ battery contacts.
this indeed doesn´t sound good at all.
I can´t say what caused this. Sounds like and overvoltage on the cable/module.
But just in case you can notice that the battery module now starts to behave strange and/or blows up a little: Take it off the device and place it at a firesafe place outside the house. Inside a metal box for example.
Don´t want to be a doomsayer but in case the battery module took harm by whatever cause this heat (so that you can smell something) it can get dangerous and cause a metal burning that can´t be fought with usual fire-extinguishers
But please: Don´t panic
If there´s nothing suspicious going on with the battery please ignore my advice.
I guess it would depend on how many phones with removable batteries are around in the region. If almost all batteries aren’t removable, there would be no point for a shop to keep something like this in stock.
Hello guys, it’s me from a different account now. I’ve left my fairphone for several months now and i finally want to fix it now. The Last update from April: it did not charge properly, smelled like smoke once and when trying to charge, blinks red rapidly. Havent touched it because didnt want to make anything worse. Now I’m in Germany so I’m able to order new modules or whatever.
Question for those who maybe have read my problem: am I supposed to try charge it for hours or am I better off buying a new charging (bottom ?) module ? Or have you got other suggestions?
