Issues

Main Board

Sim Reader

The sim reader may fail to read a sim card (reporting 'sim-missing' in mmcli), possibly due to deformed pins (if you put your sim adapter in without a sim), or due to a warped sim card adapter.

A possible solution is to bend the pins back (using a plastic spudger), and/or use a different sim card adapter (which your carrier may provide to you).

USB-C Side Board

All USB-C Side Board issues can be fixed by replacing the USB-C Side Board

Internal Microphone

The microphone may stop working or occasionally stop working or give off static when power is plugged in.

One possible fix is to shim U101 (as seen on the back side of the USB-C Side Board) with a piece of paper or cardboard.

Bottom Speaker

The bottom speaker may stop working, especially if you have recently mishandled the USB-C Side Board, stressing the point of connection between the circuit board and the circuit flex. This can be fixed by touching up the solder between the two.
