Luckily, after sun-drying it for several hours, most of the features are working normally again: Display, Wifi, mobile data, microphone, GPS, Bluetooth, speakers, light, fast charging, both cameras. All fine.
But, every sensor is not available. Proximity, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, light sensor. All sensor apps either report missing sensors or firmware problems.
I figured, that light and proximity sensors are on the top module and therefore could be replaced. But Accelerometer? And I wonder, why all sensors broke, while everything else is fine, maybe the problem is some other core component?
Are there any further checks I could do or can I hope, support may be able to repair this?
Well, the problem was, that it was on and got sprinkled in the garden for 30 minutes or so. It was off when I found it and didn’t turn on
Then I removed the battery and dried it .
Off course it’s likely, that during this time some components were damaged
I don’t know how exactly you got the sensor tests. If you downloaded and installed additional apps for that, you might also want to do the “official” built-in tests (only in Fairphone OS) available by calling * # * # 6 6 # * # *
Thanks for your answers.
Yes, my drying maybe was a bit short. Of course I needed the phone (what else ) and was happy, that the main functions all seemed to work.
Today I opended the phone and disconnected all modules - everthing looked normally. Also the one “white dot” visible didn’t turn pink/red like suggested in the other thread.
I couldn’t get the cover off the core module as I didn’t have such a tiny torx screw driver.
I also didn’t want to open the modules as I don’t want to risk any more damage.
So for now it looks like I will have to live with it…
