marmistrz 80 Posted September 18, 2022 Share Posted September 18, 2022 (edited) I've happily used my Pro1 for over 2 years. I can't help dropping my devices, but the 3D-printed TPU case saved the screen from cracking throughout its life. However, a week ago, the screen suddenly stopped working, with no clear cause. A week earlier days ago I noticed a weird issue: the screen would turn off while it was being touched at one place (the place was around 50% vertically, 25% horizontally counted from the left). When I removed my finger, it would turn itself on again. I supposed some weird driver bug, so I rebooted and the problem went away. That day, it was a rainy day and I was on a long walk. I took my phone from my pocket. I tried unlocking it, but instead of the lock screen, I just saw some black, red and white bars. (red and white covered <30% of the screen, I don't remember if the whole screen was on). After a few tries, the screen stopped displaying anything. The digitizer still works properly, I can access the phone using MHL (USB-C/HDMI). Reattaching the LCD flex cables doesn't fix anything. Does this sound like a short circuit in the screen panel? Is there anything else I can do other than to replace the screen (given F(x)tec's recent shipping troubles, this might take a very long time to actually get the screen) Edited September 18, 2022 by marmistrz Quote Link to post Share on other sites
