pressed the small reset button, press both volume up and down + power button altogether then released the small red button for after maybe around 10 seconds and while the others are pressed !! then the phone booted !!

and ontop of that it booted with the lenovo logo and the slogan i believe "for thos who do" stayed for a while kinda flashing itself i think.. but no progress bar.. I almost thought i was on some boot loop maybe or soft brick but luckily it booted into the russian Life ROM I flashed after that phone went to homes screen and just died again !!!!!!!!!!!

im thinking maybe it may be a hardware issue?? or ??
Hi ! When Life ROM is flashing, no progres barr appears. Did you tried to remain on Life rom ? At least for a week ? Before you go in a service store try to stay with Life and iff this bug appears again go to service store.

I mean the ROM is still in there !! And the phone is just acting up again. Not booting..I think it's hardware. not software....,!! Will leave it for like a day or two and try booting it / flashing once more...oh and we have service centers my country where currently at

Yes. Seems to me is a hardware problem. Please let me know what was the problem iff you go with the phone in service. Good luck.

That's a big problem indeed. Try to contact the sales store. Maybe they can help you.

I opened the phone today removed the battery...plugged into laptop, then did various tricks of key combinations with and without the battery still phone seems dead !! I guess the owner will send the phone back to India for repairs...or where you from do they sell motherboards for this model? If Yes can you send me website link even if it's in your local language if available want to compare prices... will use Google translator to translate if not in English
