Instead of the battery symbol on the screen (indicating it is being charged), I get a sequence of 8 red blinks on the bottom notification light (which is just above the charging port), each blink lasting 0.5 seconds, then 0.5 seconds off (so total duration of blinking sequence is 8 seconds), then 1.5 seconds off, then blinking sequence starts again.
I left it connected to the charger for 2 weeks. Nothing changed.
I then replaced the battery with a brand new OEM battery, same thing again.
I cannot get into recovery mode nor is the phone recognised when I connect it to the PC.
Any ideas? Anyone knows the meaning of this blinking sequence?
