Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Zenfone Max M1
  2. Firmware Version: Pie
  3. Rooted or not: Yes
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: Frequent

Issue started maybe 5 months ago. Display turns black when during a videocall while charging. Call is still going on, but the person says he cant see me. Nowadays, screen frequently goes black when using for longer than 10 minutes, maybe. I have to wait a couple of minutes, reboot the phone by longpressing power button. If I dont wait and reboot fast, then as soon as it boots up to homescreen, display will go black. I am running a custom rom (A10 with Pie firmware) without gapps. I cannot flash gapps or use stock rom, cuz then the screen goes black before i get to the google sign in screen.

Issue is not there if device is not being used.

Device doesnot do this while in custom or stock recovery, for however long or heavy i use it. I am really pissed, because i cant even watch a youtube video in fullscreen for 2 minutes before screen goes black.

What do you think this is? HW or SW issue?
