End of an era? Jolla Tablet has so far been the longest living smart device I’ve ever owned. Now, I’m afraid, it has encountered a problem I can’t fix. I hope somebody can help me since Jolla Customer Support doesn’t have anything.
Yesterday morning the Tablet was working fine. About 11 am the touch screen suddenly stopped responding. I first though the device crashed (it has done this a couple of times), so I rebooted it. After rebooting, the screen froze to Jolla logo and I had to reboot it again (it has done this a couple of times too). In the second attempt the Sailfish OS booted, and the start screen shows. However, I can’d do anything with it, because touch screen doesn’t react to anything. I can turn the tablet to landscape mode, set the volume and double press the power button to view keypad, but I can’t enter the code because the screen doesn’t react to touch. I’ve tried a couple of times with the charger on and off, and the tablet fully and not-fully charged.
OS version: latest early access (I turned on early access in january in hopes of getting the browser usable)
Tablet version: 64 gb (bought second hand from an early backer)
Developer mode: no
I’ve mostly used the tablet to keep my calendar, read emails, RSS and Reddit with the native SFOS apps and read scientific papers with Mendeley. I have not installed anything that’s not from either Jolla Store or Aptoide.
