1) When you shutdown, remove the battery, plug in power and move the USB
connector carefully a little bit, do you hear static/cracking sound from
2) When you put the battery in, boot, plug in the power and move the
USB connector carefully a little bit, do you see the screen brightness
3) When you remove the power, put FreeRunner in USB host mode, connect
an external USB keyboard and move the USB connector carefully a little
bit, do you see the LEDs lights on the keyboard up/flicker and the
possibility to enter characters via the keyboard is very difficult?
4) (other non-related hardware issue) Is the LED and laser pointer of
your stylus at 25% brightness and does it sometimes go to 100% when you
unscrew and rescrew the battery part of the sylus?
Unfortunately, for me all the above questions I have to answer positively.
Can more people do the above checks and report back here how their
device performs in this thread?
