P2 kinda bricked but still vibrating

2018-07-25, 18:48 PM

After some hot days (don't know if that is the cause) of about 40 degrees Celsius my Lenovo P2a42 got bricked while vibrating every 30 seconds. When I hold POWER + VOL DOWN + VOL UP it stops vibrating but after I hold the power button it starts again. The screen hasn't turned on except for brief blinks sometimes when I press some buttons. The phone is fully charged and all the software is stock.

 

Please help.

Hi diebolo,

 

It should not happen. Does it have any physical/liquid damage or has been dropped? Is it charging or are you seeing any battery indicator when charging it?

 

You can try to do this troubleshooting steps here (category: Phone will not turn on) and make sure you also have tried another charger already.

Hi,

 

I followed the guide except for the last step, because I can't get the recovery menu to show up.

After a while with the phone on the charger the phone started to fade the red notification led in and out.

After that I pressed the POWER + VOL- + VOL+ buttons and it vibrated long and changed the notification LED to a solid blue.

The screen is still dead, which is a little cracked, but worked just fine with all the cracks.

When I plug my P2 into my Windows PC it shows up in Device Manager as Qualcomm HS-USB Diagnostics 900E, but it doesn't show in Explorer.

 

I'm kinda an advanced user so don't be afraid to introduce difficult solutions.

 

EDIT: I still have warranty if that matters, and I found out that only if I plug it into a PC it vibrates and if I charge it nothing vibrates.

 

Regards,

Dielof

No sorry, my screen was very cracked up so I just bought a new phone (OP 5T) and I don't think this problem is fixable.
