    My 5T recently started flashing (to black) it's screen on regular intervals. During the flash, the touchscreen also becomes unresponsive.

    As a test, I already did a full factory reset, but to no avail...

    I've replaced the 5T with a new 9, but I would like to keep it as a spare.

    Is this a hardware fault or software?

    It could be hardware or software related. Though if it was software it's likely to have gone once you factory reset it, which would suggest it's hardware related.

    Did you restore your phone, or have you kept it in the clean factory reset state? Did the black flashing screen happen once it had been reset?

    If it happens after a reset, it sounds like a hardware issue.

    I'm afraid it's hardware related, during the reset and first reboot the screen kept on flashing...

    Ah that's a shame! I'm not sure whether it would make much sense getting the 5T repaired 🤷‍♂️
