Hi All,

I was using my phone few days back and it got switched off on its own and never came back to life.
I showed it to a service center and they say the phone is dead. There is nothing they can do to repair it and the motherboard will have to be replaced.

Anyone has any suggestions?
I don't believe these guys tried to repair it.

Thanks,

You know, you may be right. Maybe they just looked at it and said this thing is screwed. Or, they took the time to try to do something. Either way. First things first. Can you tell us if the phone shows a charging image when it is plugged in? If so, step two. Does the phone go into download mode? That is, hold down the down on the volume while holding the middle button on the face of the phone, while pressing the power button to turn it on. Dont hold the power button after you see the booting screen.

The Phone displays nothing even if it plugged in through a charger.

The LED indicator is not active as well.
It just looks like sitting in a coffin right now.

It has been only 13 months since I bought it.

If a usb jig doesn't work then new motherboard required.

Probably, those guys weren't just fooling you then, you really need a new motherboard.
