Last night, I didn't put it on charging, as I used to do regularly. It was around 40% battery when I put phone on my desk before sleeping. Today when I tried to unlock it, pressing unlock key, it showed nothing. I pressed it long thinking it might be off, but nothing happened, so I put it on charging, thinking the battery is drained completely. but even after an hour, it doesn't seems to be charging as bo red light was there on home button. I pulled out battery, wait for around 5 mins and put battery there, but no luck. I then grabbed my multimeter to check battery voltages, it shows 3.97V. Now when I put the multi-meter probes on VCC(Red probe) and GND(Black probe) pins on phone, it shows 0.434V without battery and 0.560V with battery inserted.
I charged my battery a little bit potential difference with an universal battery charger, upto 4.12V, but still the phone is not booting. I also checked for the power button failure, as there might be a chance of loose contact of pins underside the board(read somewhere), but it was fine.
Am not able to figure out where is the fault. If uUSB charging jack is crappy, then after charging the battery from other source must have worked, also if charging jack is fine, then the potential difference across VCC and GND must be around 4+Volts which is merely around a half volt.
I tried to get into CWM but no luck, I tried to get into download mode(pressing both volume keys and inserting uUSB just after it), but still no luck. I don't know how it got bricked, as I haven't made any changes recently, I was using it at a daily go. God knows what happened to it. It is out of warranty, again am out of luck.
