Rom: ZperiaION 4.5
Phone: Xperia Ion ATT Locked Bootloader

Problem: My phone has stopped giving any response what so ever to me.
1) My phone was working when I woke up as i turned off the Alarm and responded to a text.
2) I check 10 minutes later and my phone is not responding at all, no screen, no vibration, no response when plugged into PC and i am not able to do a force shut down by holding down the volume and power buttons for 30 seconds.

3) what worries me is that there is no LED light or any response whatsoever, nothing from any way that i know as a decently good user of this phone. Also, before the phone went down, it was at about 90% battery so im positive the battery did not drain randomly in 10 minutes.

Hmm

Put a rubber band around your power and volume button to force off and when it finaly responds

Use flashtool or sony updater service to fix your ion unless you have a unlocked bootloader then use flashtool

Any questions just ask

45mins should usualy do it

If not then you will kill your battery and you may not be able to recover

Anyway it may be warm
Just try flashing using flashtool then you should be fine

Damn...You never told me about the 45 minutes part . The Battery I think is dead because the Red LED was blinking while i tried to charge for the last 6 hours. So I have come to the conclusion that the batter is dead because it has never taken me this long when i fixed the soft-brick before.

Thanks for trying to help i guess @Envious_Data

I have the same problem
My lt28h randomly shutted down in school like the other one and when I connected it to the charger a red led blinked very short (about 1sec) and weak, after 3 sec the LED started blinking very fast and weak, also I were able to here quietly clicks everytime the led blinked.
I charged it for 24 hours already but I had no response, no vibration, no sound, no green or orange LED.
I flashed CM11 and just replaced my screen by myself and had a bug sometimes (once a day) that my sim-card didn't got detected and I had to restart.

Yeah, I'd just remove the battery and try to charge it separately and see if that helps.
