Warranty already expired. So instead of sending my phone for repair to France I prefer going to a local repair shop.
I know there are several phone repair shops in the area, but I don’t know which have experience with Fairphone in particular.
Last week I went to a repair shop in the Hague. The only wanted to replace the camera module, but when I told them that wasn’t the problem they said it is not repairable.
Today I went to a repair café in Delft. After inspection we found out that some components on the main board had come lose.
Someone from the staff tried to solder them back but because of their size it wasn’t possible to get them back correctly. So after the attempts the camera is still malfunctioning.
I’m afraid the only option left is to send the phone back to Fairphone, but looking at their price list the repair is quite expensive. I think it isn’t worth it for just the camera.
