Default Very strange problem, won't charge or power on

I got my Sprint M8 just few hours ago, rooted, .S-ON.

At first it worked fine, but after left it in my pocket for about 30 min with about 45% battery power, the phone powered down by itself, and there was no way to power it on again.

I tried to charge the phone with the stock charger for more than 3 hrs, the screen was always showing an empty battery logo with a flash icon inside, no green charging indicator, and the orange LED beside the speaker was blinking all the time.

I also tried to push Power+Vol up for more than 20 seconds, still nothing happened.

Is anyone know how to fix this?

Push Power + Vol up again, but this time hold the phone under a bright light, in particular the area of the front camera and sensor needs to be under the light. Keep holding down until it reboots.

Try to hold it for more than 5 min and no chance to boot it.
