I have the CM13 installed on my Moto G (Falcon).

Last week, I left the phone on charge longer than usual and I came back to find dark screen. I have tried restarting it and I can feel the phone vibrate when it powers back on, however I cannot see anything on the screen. When the phone is "on" or I press the lock button, it goes from the shade of black to a shade of gray.

I have tried connecting it to the adb but adb shell doesn't recognise any device.

The phone must be working though as the alarm goes off every morning.

I have tried looking at several solutions on the web with little success.

Any help is appreciated.


I have faced the same issues too and your best bet is to reset the phone via a custom recovery(assuming you have one installed) since you flashed cm13.

  • Thanks Bismeet. I would try to do that but i cannot see any options on screen to proceed. – Viquar May 5 '16 at 5:11
  • Do you have a custom recovery installed? – Bismeet singh May 5 '16 at 5:13
  • I did install it, yes. – Viquar May 5 '16 at 5:18
  • Then you should be able to boot into recovery from bootloader mode. – Bismeet singh May 5 '16 at 5:19
  • That's the problem, I think. I don't see anything on screen. Not even when the phone is restarting. Just a dark screen. But if it has power, i can hear the alarm at their right times. – Viquar May 5 '16 at 5:46
