Default Sensation is kinda.. dead

hey everyone, I have an issue with my girlfriend's HTC Sensation

The phone is almost 3 years old now, and its been acting up lately. It was slow, would freeze from time to time and the general responsiveness was crappy.
She played some game, during which the phone turned itself off, and after a while it would get hot (heating issue). After that it would no longer turn on, the LED doesnt turn on when its charging (or should be at least) and theres no way to enter bootloader/recovery/boot it up. ADB doesnt detect it either.
The LED turned on yesterday while charging and the phone booted up until the HTC logo, then it turned itself off again.


what could be the issue? dead battery or CPU? the battery is also quite old, probably a year+ and it wouldnt last 2 hours on full charge.

I unfortunately dont have a spare battery, I was telling her to get a new one because this one isnt gonna last much longer but she wouldnt listen - it's not my phone so I didnt get another battery. When the usb is plugged in the LED doesnt turn on anymore, I cant really get it to boot up or anything. it only happened once

yes probably you are right
maybe you won't have any luck with this method
i don't know what else to suggest
the only thing i can tell you is to use a second battery if you can find one

edit: did you check if the battery fits correctly?

yes, I did. The battery isnt bumpy or anything and it seems to fit perfectly fine.seem like I have to find someone with a Sensation in my area and try to swap the battery for a few mins
