Recently i purchased a Gemei A330 from a guy that found it in his basement and wasnt sure if it was going to turn on.
I thought it was worth a try as it looked to be in good shape, so i bought it for dirt cheap and came home to charge it.
When i turned it on however, there was a black screen with red letters, something about "unauthorized" and "chinachips. soemthing"
so i turned it off and tried searching about it online. However, when i tried to turn it back on again, the letters were gone and instead, green distorted lines show up for a second and then turn purple (with a black background).
Does anyone know if this is a problem that can be solved? Is it bricked and can i unbrick it? Or is this more of a internal hardware issue?
Should i start being sad about this purchase?
Thank you all in advance.
