Sudden Death (or not?)

You could do with searching. Not many people who have had problems read the forum daily etc.

Such a problem can be many things, clean carefully is the only way I’d go, but reading a lot more as well :slight_smile:

Try searching for [death] as that is your preferred word or [sudden] or [black] etc.

  • Can i retrieve my daty if i manage to start the phone in recovery mode?

If you can start the phone you can copy data to a PC export the Contacts etc.

data on an Sd card formatted at internal is encrypted, so you must start the phoen to access any their.
