[Q] Phone won't charge
Hello, I've been having this issue before but I always managed to start the charging process after few tries with battery calibration (power + volume up and down for 2 minutes).
But since yesterday I'm unable to start charging and I've spent hours trying to fix it. It just blinks red few times, then turns off for a short while, then again starts blinking and repeats.
I've followed the guide at: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1658084
but it didn't solve the issue. It's not charging fast enough to get to fastboot via USB 3.0, and while it does work when you charge it from the wall it still doesn't stay in fastboot for longer than 5 or so seconds. I can't even get to recovery.
The thing is, my phone won't charge ONLY when it turns off due to low battery (which happens often since One X has a really crappy battery and I use it heavily at work). Normally it charges just fine.
I've started having issues after I accidentally got it wet, although it worked for a couple of months after the incident.
I am planning to buy a new phone as soon as I can get my hands on either Note 3, G2 or Z1, but for now I'd like to fix it since it will be weeks before I can get a new phone and I could give this to my sister.
Perhaps a new battery would solve the issue? I'm a bit scared to replace a non-replacable battery.
I don't care about warranty, it's already expired according to my carrier (6 month warranty on battery while the phone has 2 years warranty, but it has a non-replacable battery and opening it would void the 2 year warranty - where's the logic in that?).
Anyway, any suggestions on how to make the damn thing charge for now without making any hardware changes to it? I just need like 4-5% so I can boot it and leave it charging from there. In case someone asks, I tried different chargers.
