MCU Freezes with phone connected

Oct 10, 2019
Anyone have their screen freeze when the phone gets plugged in?

Like either of the USB ports I plug in to charge and instantly the big screen freezes and the small one says to reboot it with the scroll wheels. It's done this before like 6-10 months ago and I forgot about it because I rarely need to charge my phone outside the house, and then my eMMC failed a few months ago, and I got it fixed.

Yesterday I decided to try and charge my phone again thinking it was an early eMMC sigh of going out that caused the issue in the first place, aaaannnnnd frozen. It does charge though ‍

I had previously been able to charge my phone without issue then one day, bam frozen screen. I have a few old phones lying around the house if i remember i'll try and plug a few different brands in and see if they work or not.
