Unit powers up, reaches a "download" or service screen, visibly charges but does not boot into an OS. Crashing, hanging etc. all apply here.

Device wont power on at all or respond to button input.
Device powered off, NO show of big battery icon, even when charger is plugged in. Don't panic, let it charge fully for 4 hours from a mains supply not usb.It will start again !!!. Battery big icon will appear around 30% battery charged, I know because that's what I saw. I didn't check when it's in 10% or 20%. The 1st time I check was already 30% up from no-boot or no response.
