my FP1 second batch doesn’t start anymore. It keeps a black screen, though the Led blinks green in longer intervals after pushing the ON button. First, should this blinking tell me something?
What could be the problem?
I changed the screen about six weeks ago. Then I had the issue with the proximity sensor, the screen turning black whenever I made calls. I used the workaround “start button ends call” for a while now and now tried cleaning the proximity sensor. Without sucess.
Instead it didn’t turn on anymore. Re-opened, checked for loose connections inside. Then i noticed the green Led after pressing the ON button for about three seconds.
That sounds entirely possible. I still suspect it has to do with the proximity sensor that failed earlier.
Or the screen isn’t hooked up proberly - i mean, it’s a new replacement part, and it worked before, but the bug with the black screen started after installing it. It feels like a hardware thingy, but in the meantime i opened again and doublechecked. Which connection is for the screen? probably the big on the mainboard? - it sits sort of loose, so i don’t trust it to stay on when i close the phone.
I re-re-checked the wires. Either they’re broken inside, or the connection doesn’t seem to be the problem after re-re-checking. Gave it a thorough push. I’m close to giving up. Tomorrow I will get an IPHONE from a buddy because I actually need to make phone calls. Everybody has their own reasons for not having an Iphone, so do I. My love affair with fairphone was intense, but short.
The advice about adb looked interesting, and I’ll experiement into that out of sheer interest, but I hadn’t switched usb debugging on, besides I doubt it’s a software issue.
