We called that an "RBI."
"Repair by Inspection."
Glad to be able to help.
That sounds scarey when dealing with a airplance, but a little android malfunction puts in all in perspective.
If it were the IS&T Dept. they would say reboot it. That was always their fix.
Actually that is what I did, unplug look at it, plug look at, again, repeat.
