Re: Vibrations stopped working


Hi Marcin,

Thanks a lot for your answer! I didn't remember there was a factory mode!

The vibrate test does not work, so as you suspected, it's a hardware problem. I have seen the spare part on eBay, but it looks like you have to solder it and I'm not sure I can do that… Do you know if that's a hard thing to do?

And thanks for your offer, it's much appreciated ;)

Do the test in a test mode:

Switch off the phone, press power button together with Vol- button. Test mode will be enabled and You will be able to test whole hardware, vibrations too.



Ps two days ago I crashed my e4.5 and today decided that i'm not gonna repair it. I can send You the vibrator if it is dead.

Hi everybody, I have a problem on one of my bq 4.5: vibrations have
  stopped working
  entirely. I've tried switching off and on every button I
  could find
  (other vibrations, vibration settings in notifications,
  vibration) but to no effect so far.
Is there any way to enable vibrations (or check if they are
  from the command line? Has any of you encountered such a
  problem? Is it
  worth writing a bug report? If so, is there a log or any
  other kind of
  additionnal data I can provide?
Thanks! Guillaume --
