  1. Good day, have an issue I hope you can assist me with. My Redmi Note 8 Pro received March 9, 2020, on March 31, 2020 while watching a facebook video, the screen went crazy, similar to a screen retention, screen froze and touch non-responsive, but the audio was still playing from the video. I’ve tried hard reboot and hard recovery twice. Interesting, Redmi boot up logos display no problem, as well as the Fastboot logo, but the Recovery Menu does not display at all the two times I did recovery, I followed button press instructions. Only once did the recovery screen display and it froze after some seconds. After recovery, the display is the same. One day, I checked and it worked, so I was able to activate and set up the device. While doing updates and downloading Homescreen data, the screen out again.

    My question, could the above be a software or hardware issue? I am confused as to why because Redmi logos display ok, but not Recovery Menu & when phone boots up. On pressing power button, screen displays then freezes within 1 sec. I tried an OTG mouse, screen turns on with power button press but in moving the cursor, the cursor freezes within 1 sec.

    Thank you for any assistance you can give, because Xiaomi India & Global are both not doing so well in assisting me, they keep asking me to do on screen touch instructions and the screen is non-responsive to touch. I was able to enable USB debugging when the phone was active after recovery, but bootloader unlocking is still disabled.
