Hi,

I have been running 4.4 on my Arc S for 2-3 weeks, then the phone suddenly couldnt be charged, cannot turn it on either. I usually see a blinking red led. I once managed to connect it to my pc with "fastboot", or at least it looked like fastmode, but I couldnt flash the phone, the app said it's not connected. PC Companion cannot help either. Also my windows says that USB device malfunctioned and cannot be connected.

I have no ida why all this happened, as I didnt do anything like OTA updates or something like that.

The phone has unlocked bootloader.

Can someone help with this? Help.

Trying to turn on, but all you get is 3 flashes of red LED? Then your battery is empty. Find a way to charge it.

Basicaly yes. Tried to charge it for 48h, but it don't change anything.

How can I make sure it's only the batter dead (empty) not the phone? I have a current meter if that can help somehow.

You happen to have another Xperia Arc or Arc S nearby to try the battery?
