Hello everyone

I was using my phone and the battery was critically low and eventually the phone powered itself off. I tried recharging the phone later but I'm not getting the charging screen. I've pressed numerous keystrokes combinations (vol down + power, etc.) to start the phone, but the phone just wouldn't boot up.

I tried connecting the phone to the PC, and it's getting detected by Windows but it's showing the phone as 'Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008", and the phone's screen is still off.

Is there a way to revive my phone?

Thanks.

Just keep it plugged to charger. It takes a while before it boots up again.

fully charge ur battery in external charger than press volume up button then insert battery than insert usb cable which is plugged into a computer. see if downloading logo appear on screen. if yes then u r hell of a lucky person and flash a kdz. if nt then it is hard brick.
then u have to follow brick method which is available in forum. u v to search for it.

I had the same symptom as what you already described, regretfully and sorry but your phone is hard bricked, its not dead, just hard bricked. Sent for repair, it is cheaper than buying a new phone. trust me if you love your phone, it doesnt harm your money just for repair. But ask the repairer if it cheaper to just unbrick the phone because some repairer charge more for flashing the stock firmware after unbrick so basically
(jtag unbrick + flash stock firmware = $) then after the phone arrive and you can already access download mode then use the unbricking guide to restore firmware.
