Default [Q] Possibly Bricked Note 12.2 (won't charge)

Okay, my Note 12.2 (SM-P900) was rooted, had TWRP 2.7 and running fine until I did the latest update via Kies. After unrooting and letting Kies update to P900UEU1ANC5, I rerooted using CF Auto root and reinstalled TWRP 2.7. Everything went as planned and I began setting up my wifi, Google info, etc. All of a sudden the screen starting flickering off and on and the battery level seemed to drop from 85% to 15% (it started beeping and said battery low, connect to charger) in about 30 minutes or so. And yes I did check the battery level before starting and it was at 93%. So before I got a chance to grab the charger the screen went black and would not come back on. I plugged up, waited a few minutes and hit the power button. The only thing one the screen was the big battery charging icon and it was a little over half green already. I wait and hour or so, try it again and same thing. So I am thinking reboot into download, re-install the .tar through Odin and everything should be golden. Nope...I can only boot up into download or recovery mode when its plugged into the wall, as soon as I unplug, it shuts off as if I had a dead battery. I left it plugged up, (charging?) last night and all day today, just checked it and the same thing. So without being able to get into download mode and connect to a pc what else can I do. Is there any way to maybe load a zip file onto the ext storage and flash it via TWRP???

Worst case scenario would mean dropping it on purpose to break the screen and replace it under protection plan at BB. And I REALLY do not want to do that

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated, many thanks!!!

I suggest downloading the ANC5 firmware from sammobile and flash back to stock using Odin 3.09 in Download Mode. Then if it still won't boot, send it back to BB for a replacement.

Actually on my way to BB this morning. I have a copy of the ANC5 firmware but because it wont hold a charge I cannot connect to the pc and go into download mode. PC USB port is not strong enough to charge the battery.

I wonder if there's an issue with your charger. Try your phone charger

Just got back from BB with a new NotePro 12.2!! They tried several chargers and none of them worked and since I have not had it a month they decided to give me a new one as opposed to sending it out for service.
