    Go for the fold!!! Lol.
    Well, I have my old S7 right now working just fine. It does the trick. I was thinking of ordering a S20FE through my carrier, and see which gets here first!

    At the same time, maybe I should tell Samsung to send me a Z Fold 2 instead of my N20U, and I'll pay the difference. Lol

    Nice thought but other than the routines, I don't touch Bixby.
    You make it sound like a disease. It's a shame so many people write it off.

    Would you be able to connect it to a touch screen, DeX should start automatically, maybe you will be able to troubleshoot that way

    Sounds to me as if the LED layer just went. (If you hold the screen at a very flat angle you can sometimes see a little ghosty "screen" in there.) Samsung doesn't repair that, they just replace the screen.

    But if it's the screen LED driver (the LED layer is controlled - that's how the screen brightness gets changed), they'll replace the motherboard too. So I sure hope you (referring to Blasted_1) have everything backed up. The new motherboard won't have any of your installed apps, your music, pictures, videos, etc.

    Everything I have/need is in the cloud or on the 256GB card that keeps hopping phones. So not too worried there.

    So tonight will be three weeks since my phone screen went kaput.

    Apparently Samsung is having problems trying to get into my phone. I gave them passwords to get in through the local repair depot that I have to deal with. Just factory reset the darn thing and go from there!

    Hoping they gave their heads a shake and can get it done.

    Sheesh.

    So my device is back. Not sure all what was done but everything seems to be working just fine on it. Yay.

    Now the process of slowly setting it up...again.

    And it wasn't "Samsung" repairing it. It was FutureTel in Markham, ON. Same place that fixed my Galaxy Buds oh so far back.
