Hello, since yesterday i have a problem with my GPS. It suddenly stopped working with different y apps but it still shows the location icon above. I can’t find my location anymore on Osm for example. ,I’m travelling now on international trains but the problem started in the Netherlands so I think something broke. Is there something I can do, or a module I can replace? I bought this phone a few months ago soni think I still have warrenty.
With * # * # 6 6 # * # * in the dialer app, you can open the service menu, where you can start some tests, is the GPS working there?
When i type that after i finish with the *, the dialer menu disappears and nothing happens. I also tried with another dialler app but then when I press call button also nothing happens.is there another way to enter the service menu? I have developer options open but don’t see anything useful there.
Aren’t you using the standard Fairphone software on your phone?
No, when I got it, I installed some OS but it is android based, I just don’t want and have any google stuff on it.
I have Lineage OS 17.1-20210419-NIGHTLY-FP3
And android 10
Then the test functionality doesn’t work, and before contacting Fairphone support, you would have to install the original software anyway.
What a hassle…then I have to put all my things on a computer drive and reinstall everything later. But okay I guess that’s what I should do
My phone has a recovery/reboot function, will try that after I put my things somewhere safe
But wait, I’m not familiar with Lineage OS on the Fairphone, maybe someone else will join the discussion and help you.
Maybe it came with an update?
A use on /e/ experiences the same problem after the last update:
Thank you , but if it is a software problem, wouldn’t more people have the same problem? Also I think.my lineageos didn’t update when the problem started but later I found out that I needed to manually update to version 18. However i tried to do GPS test (official service test)in the original FP Os and I didn’t see any result.When i opened Openstreetmap in the original OS it found my location. Which is weird, because now I switched to Lineage OS 18 and again it doesn’t find my position. Kind of lost here…
Hello, I had the same problem on FP3+.
Turning my phone off, waiting a few minutes and THEN restarting it worked for me!
I did that before many times as I reinstaleld the phone with different operating systems but the problem remained. Now suddenly it works again but I don’t know why (am now in LineageOS 18.1)
