My FP2 is acting weird. I tried to encrypt it but something got wrong so I had to factory reset it. When I restarted it the touch screen didn’t work as it should. And when I inserted the SIM card random numbers appeared, making it impossible to type in the code.
So, it works ok without a SIM. I have to press on the same place on the screen several times to get it to react and sometimes when I barely touch the screen it reacts and opens menus etc without my intention.
Any suggestions? If I cannot fix this I’m sad to say I have to buy a new phone.
No tutorial. I just pressed “Encrypt phone” in the settings. Everything seems to work as normal but then it said the encryption corrupted my files and that I had to factory reset the phone. Which I did. And since then the screen is acting weird, reacting once in a while and sometimes living it owns life clicking on stuff I haven’t clicked etc.
Maybe it’s just coincidence - and the encryption and the failure of the display are unrelated? Maybe it’s a failure of the display or of the core module?
Are #fairphoneangels near you? So you might try to exchange the display module?
I managed to get my phone working again. I also found out that there are not Fairphone Angels close to the part of Sweden where I live.
Also I really want to encrypt my phone but due to the problems described above I’m a hesitating. Any tips how to encrypt it without corrupting the files and in the end not being able to encrypt it (as I have to reset it, repeating the cycle).
