I have been reading a bunch of articles on ways to fix this "red light" issue. My issue seems a bit different from most articles as the red light does not show up when I plug in my charger. Articles I have read seems like most "red light" appears when they have the charger plugged, but my issue is that the red light only shows up when I have my charger plugged AND holding down the power button for several seconds. Without holding down the power/power+volume down button, the red light doesn't blink at all.
What I have tried:
- Unscrewing the two screws for the battery, as some article has stated it was a design flaw where the screws tighten causes the battery connector to not work.
- Replaced battery with a new one, nothing different, still unresponsive phone.
- Left charger plugged into phone for 24 hours, phone does not get warm/hot so I doubt the charger is even charging the phone. (no red light)
- Used Qi wireless charger, phone got really warm but still nothing.
If anyone had this issue and solved it, please inform me on how you did so. I'm not sure if it is a battery issue or some other component but would like to get to the bottom of this. Before this happened, my phone was being charged using a car charger and I noticed the charger was loose so the charging indicator kept blinking on and off rapidly. I believe that may have drained the battery to 0% but I did replace the battery with a new one and issue was not fixed. Hope the seller didn't send me a dead battery as well.
