I need your help, please.
Last year I broke my Nexus 5 screen.
After replacing the LCD (original) I encountered random reboots every day.
I took it back to the store, they replaced the screen again and the random reboots disappeared.
About a year later, 2 weeks ago, I broke the screen again :)
Took it to a different store and paid again for the original LCD replacement.
Surprisingly, random reboots are back!
My phone randomly reboots itself maybe 3-4 times a day, sometimes it won't turn on until I press the power button for about 10 seconds, and then it starts "optimizing apps" for a few minutes.
I tried clearing the cache, reinstalling kernels, factory reset, wiped everything and reverted to a blank new ROM, problem persists.
I also tried tapping the device, playing with the power button etc... nothing, it doesn't seem to be related.
I went back to the store, but I couldn't even show the problem, as the reboots only happen randomally and there's no way to initiate it.
He didn't agree to replace the screen again, and advised me to buy a new battery (which I didn't)
The technician seems like a nice guy, I don't think he is trying to rip me off.
He is the store owner so replacing the screen will go straight from his pocket, and he's really convinced that the random reboots has anything to do with the screen replacement.
On the other hand, the alternative is me paying again for a screen replacement, which I really don't want to, as paying for two screen replacement is almost like buying a new phone :/
My questions are:
1. How is it possible that the same problem happened twice? Maybe there is something wrong with my phone that is not related to the screen?
2. Any ideas how can I reproduce the reboots manually? so at least I can make him believe that there is a problem.
3. What do you think I should do? I really need a working phone and not excited about paying again.
