Issue#8694: Fairphone - FP2: incoming calls --> 5s until screen turns-on

  • @therob wrote:

    If I get an incoming call my FP2 rings (and vibrates if option is activated), but the screen takes about 5-10s until it turns-on and only then I can see who is calling.

    • Did I messed up any setting?
    • Does anybody experiences the same behaviour?
    • Any idea where I can look for a solution?

    Btw: is there an option to enable an "increasing ring tone" (starting with vibrating and then ringing very quite--->ascending to the max. ringtone loudness set in options)?
    If not: I hope GravityBox will soon be installable to the FP2 as it brings us this feature...

    Cheers, Robert

  • Issue#568937: Fairphone - FP2 Crashes/Reboots With Incoming Calls

    @Ed_Bycroft wrote: Hello all, Apologies if this has been covered in a previous post - can't find one specifically dealing with this problem. Intermittently since I've had the FP2, but especially in the last few days my FP2 crashes the instant it receives an incoming call, sometimes rebooting automatically and sometimes requiring me to remove the battery first. I'm not at all sure what could be causing it - I suspect possibly having a music or podcast player on standby at the same time might be related, but I'm not too sure. Anyone have any idea what might be causing this, and what I can do to put a stop to it? Posts: 1 Participants: 1 Read full topic

    @Adlheidr wrote: I have turned the volume to the maximum, but when I am outside I am barely able to hear what people are saying. Any one else having this problem and is there anything I can do about it? The volume is low when I am inside aswell it is just more noticable when my surroundings are louder. Apreciate the help! Also, I have created another panel on my homescreen but I could not choose where to put it. As for now, my new panel is to the right of the recent and most used apps. I would like to have this recent-panel to the far right and my new panel with apps imediately after the home-panel but I did not manage to move the recent-panel. Is it posible?

  • Issue#62709: Fairphone - FP2: Sync Issue with MS Exchange (contacts)

    @KleinerAdmin wrote: My Exchange account on FP2 in general works: mails, calendar and contacts sync fine. But entering or changing a birthday entry in the Android contacts app prevents syncing contacts with Exchange any more. Syncing works again if the birthday entry is dropped in FP2. If birthday entries are entered or changed in my Office Outlook or Outlook Web Access, these changes are successfully synced with my FP2. Searching the web gives a highly interesting result (androidcentral). In short, an internal format mismatch of the Androids date is most likely the reason my Exchange 2013 server rejects this sync request. I created Exchange server-side logs and found the following error message in the sync-log: SyncCommand_ConvertRequestsAndApply_Change_AcceptClientChange_Exception : Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.AirSyncPermanentException bei Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.SchemaConverter.AirSync.AirSyncUtcDateTimeProperty.get_DateTime() bei Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.SchemaConverter.

I've had my FP2 for 3 weeks and so far no big problems until now!!It doesn't boot, totally black screen.I turned it off yesterday, and today morning I couldn't be able to power it on. I've tried taking off the battery, then the SIM cards, then carely disassembling the screen, and mounting again, and trying to start the phone again, and it does nothing, completely inactive - black. I've tried to start it in recovery mode (pressing power button and volume up button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, isn't it?) and no reactions... The only reaction is if I connect the phone to the charger, and the notification LED on the left upper corner turns on red. Can you guys help me with resolving this issue?Thanks a lot!

I have taken out the battery and restarted the phone numerous times but it's still the same. I think the problem may just be with the screen as one morning an alarm I had previously set went off, implying that the phone is still working behind the weird screen? The only way I could stop the alarm was to take the battery out. I've emailed repair at Fairphone twice now over the period of about two months and have heard nothing back so I'm throwing myself on the mercy of all you wonderful people!

  • Issue#435158: Playback Issue - Screen turns off and on repeatedly

    Hey folks, i've got an annoying issue in my Kodi 16 installation. During Video Playback my TV screen is turning off for one or two seconds infrequently. Sound is still playing, when screen turns back on it can be ok for a while or repeat immediately or after a few seconds to minutes. Now it has become even worse, kodi is now still playing but when the screen turns off also the Sound stops. Sometimes the entire system freezes, that I need to press ALT+F1 and CTRL+ALT+DEL to reboot. I suspect the Display Driver to cause this issue, but I'm not sure. I checked a bunch of log files already but could not find a hint to the cause or solution. Can you guide me to the right log file ? Or does anyone have a possible solution for this before i have to reinstall it from scratch to (hopefully) sort this out? Greetings Dennis

  • Issue#482936: Fairphone - Strange burn-in-like artefact on FP2 screen

    @michel_iwaniec wrote: Somehow it seems my FP2 has acquired a very nasty burn-in-like artefact in the recent week or so: In most white backgrounds, it is just vaguely noticeable as a whiter-than-white blobby angled 'L'-shaped line on the bottom of the screen and a few random blobby dots. But it is very noticeable on darker screens, and particularly on the bootup screen where I first noticed it. The funny thing is that the ugly 'L'-pattern looks like a typical screen burn-in, it doesn't remind me of anything I've been displaying on the device. So I am at a loss as to how this has actually happened. As I'm suffering from the ghost touch problem I've already been promised a new screen by support when they are back in stock. But I am wondering if there's anything you can do to prevent this from happening when I presumably get a non-ghost-touching screen? It really adds insult to injury if the phone that was said to last 5 years turns out to need a new screen upgrade every second month
