Hi everybody,

since yesterday every vibration inside the booted SailfishOS does not work anymore for my Jolla. Even the CSD tool diagnostics does not vibrate the phone.

But if I remove the battery and turn it on the vibration for turning on is working well. But afterwards in the OS nothing happens when trying to trigger vibration.

Is there any CLI command to force vibration or?

Probably it is just the usual case of Jolla actuator malfunctioning. Cehck: https://together.jolla.com/question/20279/vibration-problem/

Nice, I shook it hard and now vibrator is running again oO.

And it fails again after some time :(. So I have to send it to care I think :(. Fuck ...

oh that is strange, I sent it to care@ and it got lost on its way because of "sometimes working" vibrator - the CSD forces vibration iirc

Might be duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/50387/bug-vibration-alert-only-works-when-haptic-feedback-is-on/

Turn on the haptic feedback.

Nope, it has nothing to do with that, haptic feedback is already enabled ...

Ok. You also asked if it possible to activate vibration from command line. This might help you on that: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1413476
