It's a stock phone, unrooted bootloader locked. The phone was updated to the latest firmware a few days ago and was working well since.
Today I left the phone on the desk for a while. When I came back, the phone had rebooted and was in the fastboot mode screen.
I tried to restart but it just loops back to same screen. Does not even go into recovery!!
What snapped it, cant understand!
Is it bricked? How do I revive the phone now?
Please help!

Thanks

If it's a completely stock device, why not contact OnePlus and get a replacement?

Are you guys suggesting ADB sideload command? My USB debugging seems to be off, returns empty on "adb devices"
I am unaware of fastboot command to flash the stock rom, googled it but could not figure out the right command.
Thanks

(a) there is no such thing as "bricked" when it comes to any OP Qualcomm devices
(b) as with ANY OP Qualcomm, OnePlus can reflash remotely directly to the Qualcomm or you can do the same thing yourself. Just follow the simple instructions.

Thanks for the assistance.
I tried the unbrick tool, but device manager (Windows 7 64bit) shows the device as Oneplus Android Bootloader Interface (under Samsung Android Phone :))
Therefore, MSMDownloadTool does not show any device in the list.
