Moto G5 S Plus blue screen - cannot even do factory reset

2018-05-25, 7:20 AM

The phone is 6 weeks old. It's been brilliant but last night it suddenly locked up. It kept rebooting (displayed all the Moto figures (dog footballer etc) and get as far as the Home screen but when I tried to unlock it, it either re-booted, displayes turqouise screen with Motorola name and logo, of the whole screen is blue.
I've tried to do a Factory Reset, and can get as far as the image of the Android robot with 'No Command' but when I press the Power button, it blue screens again.

Is there ANYTHING I can do at this stage?

Thanks

Mary

Hi Mary119,

 

Thank you for posting.When it shows no commands, press and hold the power button then tap volume up button once. Then release the power button. Please try and let us know if this helps.

 

Thanks

Now, after I have selected 'Recovery Mode' and then Power button, it stays on turquise 'Powered by Android' for a few seconds, then blue screen, then back to turqouise, then back to blue screen, back and forth.

I did what you suggested on the turqouise screen, and on the blue screen - it made no difference.

 

Then I started again for the factory reboot and got as far as the No Command screen. Then the screnn went blank. I did what you suggested and I got to the menu where I could select 'wipe data/factory reset'. 

 

At the foot of the screen it said it was wiping the data. Now the phone has gone off and is still unresponsive to the power button.

 

What would you suggest?

I have the same problem with mine, and it's only 3 weeks old, did you find a solution? I can see they haven't answered here..

Hi Josef

I took it to local Ibrokemygadgetstore.

They will see if they can reinstall the software because they think it's got stuck in a loop.

If that doesn't work then back to supplier for a replacement.

Let me know if you find a fix please.

I don't know where you bought your G5S, whether you have loaded some "iffy" app or done anything "untoward" to or with it but in your position I would definitely return it for replacement or refund.  If it has gone AWOL so soon, I would be suspicious about its long-term future.

 

Good luck whatever you do.

Thanks, I sent it back, and after about another 6 weeks, got a replacement.

 

I wouldn't use tecobuy for a single purchase again. Would rather send the extra £70 and get better service.

 

Discount sites make sense if you're buying a whole bunch of phones.

 

Cheers

Sorry, only just realised that this was a disinterred thread - OOPS!  Glad you got sorted.

 

For what it is worth, John Lewis seem to be particularly helpful for anyone who buys from them and subsequently has a problem - and they aren't that expensive either :)

Sandip, thank you, that was the ONLY way I could get the Moto G5 plus to UNFREEZE.
