sorry, im not a technician and i already read the battery and charging “a little guide to…” and i read many different posts here in the forum.
so now, im totally confused and nerved.
my fp2 has this behaviour:
whenever i hear the acustic signal and read the warning “your battery is empty” (or similar), its too late. the phone will not accept the charger/cable combination anymore, the phone shuts down, it isnt rebootable, i have to take away the sd card, simcards and the battery or it wont charge, even with blinking red led.
it just sits there overnight and blinks its red led…
so, when i took the sd and simcards out of the phone, took the battery, it maybe charges.
i have to charge it to approximately 5-10% to boot it hanging on the cables…and that boot up process doesnt work several times, most of the times, the phone just doesnt react to button press. sometimes i have too boot it twice or 3 times, because i only get to some fairphone logo or pin-entering screen before it shuts down (i actually think, its crashing).
so, a post told me, that the fp2 can be sent back and i get a new one, some post told me that its the cables or charger or both, some posts told me that there maybe the display isnt connected to the rest of the fp2 he found a screw which presses the display away from the body.(actually, my fp2 hat a rather big space between display and body, but i just opened and closed the clasp).
the tutorial tells me to reset battery software (i actually didnt do that exactly this way, because i didnt put the battery in the phone while its connected to the net… but it just doesnt charge overnight anyways), or to try what i have to do every day…
battery doesnt seem to be bloated, but my desks and floor isnt that even…
btw, when i charge it without getting the messages first, it seems to work…slowly maybe, but it works. when i remember right i charged it two days before without warning sound and message.
so, please, what is up with my fp2? what do i have to do?
i can only use it every second day because i have to tinker around with it for half a day to charge it.
