I appreciate the advice- this would be my second exchange in a year so Im tentative to take it in and TEP( or whatever its current equivalent is) seems to get more restrictions/rules every year. Phone will work now if its plugged in but the second it loses connection with external power source -dies immediately.

Update: phone worked plugged in and after about a month it started taking a charge again....then it stopped all of a sudden again and I got the empty battery symbol with a flashing orange light for the charging signal. Bummer. If Any new light has been shed on others with battery issues- I'm all ears. TY

Tried messing with all kinds of button combinations on and off charger and nothing has changed-flashing orange light w/battery indicator (empty-no green or percentage). Phone doesn't even seem to heat up even after hours on charger. Any help would be greatly appreciated, my m7 getting to feel extremely dated on day two.

I had a similar issue plugging it into my PC via USB and waiting for the light to remain solid before powering it on seemed to work
