GPS broken hardware?

14 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi guys, i cant get my GPS to work i tried google maps gps test etc... i've tried it on coldfusionX 3 and on skatie.

What i've tried:

A-GPS patch (Link) changed to

server 0.be.pool.ntp.org

server 1.be.pool.ntp.org

server 2.be.pool.ntp.org

server 3.be.pool.ntp.org

and

server 0.europe.pool.ntp.org

server 1.europe.pool.ntp.org

server 2.europe.pool.ntp.org

server 3.europe.pool.ntp.org

Both did not work i am not getting anything when i use GPS test...

tried GPS aid does not do anything.

tried manually editing GPS.conf

Nothing works could it be the hardware that is broken?

Also im getting random reboots could that be related?

Thanks in advance

I have recently had some GPS issues and found they got resolved once I removed some non needed apps. I would do a backup, clear all data and try again.

Yea i tried everything i can think of, im going back to the store tomorrow i hope i wont be without it for months. I hope they will just give a new one or let me exchange it for a ZTE skate Aquca if i pay €50 more or something like that because if they have to repair it god knows how long it would take.

I don't think they'll be able to help you in the shop, Aldi is not really an electronics shop ;). When I had my phone repaired (had some dust that gathered behind the screen), I sent a report through the service website http://www.medion.co.../service/start/. At least that's what the warranty card tells you to do.

There's a 3 year warranty so they'll probably want to repair it, not replace it. Well I hope for you it's possible but I'm sceptical :). When I sent my phone it took a month to get back as well. The repairing didn't take that long but the mail order took weeks to get there and back.

I didn't follow what happened to your phone, you did flash a complete fresh stock rom to try if that solves the issues? But mostly the gps is broken, has happened to other guys as well on here.

There appears to be some kind of GPS patch for the blade 3 here, refers to a quicker GPS lock but the software may be wider than that, just a possibility!

Thank you! how are you doing? im on ColdfusionX 3 right now but sometimes the GPS works sometimes it doesnt doest matter wich rom i am on. And when i start navigon or any other GPS app the phone restarts. I contacted the MEDION waranty service they sent me a voucher to send it back for repair. I hope they cant fix it and give me a new one :P but i have to wait 14 days to get it back and i dont have a spare hope so that sucks :D
