New N900 Checklist? What hardware to test for potential problems?
 
Hi, I'll get my N900 @ Dec 11, via GittiGidiyor (A Turkish EBay-like service) and when I get my device, I have 3 days to test it if it works perfectly or not, after 3 days, i cant get my money back.

So, I checked the forum and noticed only "faulty mic problem" and I'll test mine when It arrives. Is there any important and maybe DOA hardware comes with N900?

Thanks,

Check for
mechanics of the keyboard,
dead pixels,
random reboots,
uneven LCD light

and do a forum search on these to learn more :)

First things I'd check are the slider, the camera focus and flash, and the speakers and mic. If the mic isn't working, try to reboot, and if that doesn't work, reflash the firmware. Your device will still have a manufacturers warranty, or at least should. Even without a receipt, you can register the device online and they'll honor the warranty for a period of I believe a 10 day courtesy period. At least in the US it is that way.

Thanks christexaport & younit =) I'll check all of them. I'm not sure about Turkey, b/c N900 is not officialy released here, and it seems it never will.

So;
* Slider
* Camera
* Speakers and Mic
* Random Reboots
* Keyboard
* Dead Pixels
* LCD Light
* Working Chess Game. =)
* USB Port
* Accessories
* "Made in Korea"
* Battery Life
* TV-Out
Anything else?

make sure you don't have the chess-bug (in the chess-game, switched bishops and knights. Makes it a reaaaalll weird game all of a sudden)

It seems I'll check lots of things =) So, anything else related hardware?

@Devil
I think it'll be more interesting, worth a try lol.

Hm, you could watch out for a loose USB port and try out all of your accessoriers of course.

If this list continues to grow, should it be sticky/wiki?
