Hi, I have a Mi Max 2 that went really unstable yesterday. Was super sluggish and freezing, I rebooted and power-cycled several times during the day and at around 3pm it rebooted itself and got stuck in a boot loop.

Running the stock ROM and Nova Launcher, nothing funny on it.
It won't turn on and I've tried all kinds of button combos.

Long press power - reboots it (still into boot loop) Mi logo on screen then flash to black and then back to logo.
Long press power + Vol Down puts it into Fastboot with the rabbit and android image and then the phone turns itself off after about 30sec.
Long press power + Vol Up should put it into recovery mode but it doesn't do it. It just sits there with the Mi logo and nothing happens. (No flash to black just consistent logo on screen)
Have tried holding down all 3 buttons and still nothing, just the Mi logo static on screen.

Any Ideas anyone???

Looks more like a hardware issue then software. Did you open it up and just look at the motherboard if there is something obviously wrong with it? It could be corrosion, rust, anything that is not normal.
