My barely used Evergreen Librem 5 has sat in a drawer for months and now I can’t get it to power on. I have tested the Librem 5 charger and cable with another phone and I have tried another phone’s charger and cable on the Librem 5. I tried the procedure detailed on Purism’s website under Charging Problems ( https://docs.puri.sm/Librem_5/Troubleshooting/Charging.html ) but nothing happens, no screen, no lights, nothing.
I have a spare battery so I put that in and the phone worked! I left it on charge and went out for a few hours, thinking the battery was charging. When I got back, the phone was dead again. Same as before, no life at all. I presume the power from the cable is not reaching the phone / charging the battery so the battery went flat. Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated.
