Had about 2% power, had it on charge from the mains (via a blackberry charger) and it suddenly died, now whenever I connect it to the mains or USB port I just get a flashing orange light and can't turn it on - will it eventually turn solid orange? A lot of threads on this for other HTC phones say to remove and reinsert the battery, obviously this isn't an option for the One X so I'm a little worried...

yeah, blackberry chargers tend to be lower current, so are no good if they battery is real dead.

use a proper htc charger and it should come back and go solid.

I think it will be ok if you just leave it charging. It sounds like it's protecting the battery from damage until it has a sufficient charge.

Although, on some laptops it is a sign of a dead battery... so I would say give it 30 to 60 mins connected to the charger and see if it fixes itself.

Cheers for your time guys, after about an hour of charging via USB I was able to turn it back on (with 2% battery lol) - I'll make sure not to use a BB charger again, need to find an official one with a decent length lead for the office...

Have this on my sensation a lot, if the battery dies completely the notification light will flash while you charge, this is to basically say its charging, but doesn't have enough charge for a boot, as there is a period during boot where HTC phones don't charge, and boot takes quite a bit of power, leave it 10-15 mins and it will turn on, if it flash orange then green constantly it means its overheating, while over heating you plug it in, it will actually de-charge to save wasted power going round the motherboard allowing the phone to cool down quickly,

Hope I answered your question
