Hi all. Bit of an essay but would appreciate any help anyone can give.
About a month ago I dropped my Fairphone 3 in a sink of washing up water. I turned it off immediately, took it apart as much as possible without unscrewing anything, and left it to dry.
The next day I put it back together and turned it back on. It worked fine except the loudspeaker was a bit crackly and the screen rotation sensor was broken. Then the loudspeaker stopped working for playing media, but continued to work for speakerphone and the earspeaker stopped working. I gave it a while to finish drying but it didn’t start working again. So I:
- Replaced the head unit.
- Replaced the base unit.
- Replaced the loudspeaker.
- Reset to factory settings.
The screen rotator started working again but the rest didn’t. I tried calling the test line and the loudspeaker test worked, but the earspeaker didn’t.
Since then it spontaneously starting working properly all round about about a week ago - both the earspeaker and loudspeaker for media. Then about 24 hours later it stopped.
Now, if I plug in earphones (that work fine) for a while, the loudspeaker works again for about 10 mins to an hour after unplugging, then it stops. When the loudspeaker works the earspeaker works, when it doesn’t the earspeaker doesn’t. If I scroll through FB whilst on speaker phone, the loudpeaker will play media over the call. But if I am not it won’t play it at all. It will play for alarms though.
This is a tad frustrating and somewhat confusing as intermittent errors can be. Any clues on what’s going wrong or how to fix it?
