Fingerprint scanner stopped working

2020-03-12, 14:08 PM
So after having the One Zoom since October and tolerating the temperamental fingerprint scanner, it's finally decided to give up the ghost. It started to simply lock me out the other day, surpassing the maximum attempts allowed. I deleted all my fingerprints and tried to re-register them, but now when the prompt tells me to "find the fingerprint sensor", it simply flashes green once when touched and refuses to register any prints. I've tried hacks like deleting the cache in the System UI app and rebooting, to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Sadly, that sounds like a broken FPS. I would suggest doing a Factory Data Reset as a last resort -- partially because it's not a bad thing to do before sending in for repair anyway. It makes sure you are properly backed up.


But based on what you've reported, it sounds like it needs to be repaired. Sorry about that.
