Can you send a video of the issues.


Have you done a DFU factory reset? You'll lose your data but will likely solve the boot loop issue. Typically a software glitch and not hardware issue that can be replaced.


This sounds like a boot loop. Hopefully you have backup your phone.


Did it start after a software update or a hardware replacement? If it is the first a DFU should do it if not a defective component might also send it into a bootloop, so try disconnecting what you have replaced and starting it if that is the case.

This unit has a bad Eeprom at its best. The second problem, a bad led is causing the flashing you mentioned. These are the two things that can cause the flashing you speak of. I would say a bad LED, in this case. Repacing an LED or Eeprom is nearly impossible. All components are micro chip and stamped into place. Next option, is buy new. Thanks for asking, Matt of Martins TV.
