for me, after overnight charging my xiaomi mi4w, in the morning, my phone suddenly cannot turned on. after many times of googling, i found out some temporary fix is just, charge your phone with higher or lower output power. for me, i just charged with my laptop, and miraculously my phone was "jump start" from that. and clearly, my battery is 100% fully charged. this type of problem is clearly not SOD or bricked phone. in my case, i am using Global Beta ROM 6.9.22.

noted that this is only temporary fix. permanent fix might involve change the battery because of faulty. idk, i plan to change in the future

Thank you for this post. I'm in Nigeria and I was watching a youtube video on my phone till my phone battery reached 5% and it suddenly went off on its own and stopped charging. I tested with different chargers all to no avail. ai had to resort to Google. My first Google search brought me to this page and I plugged the phone to my Mac as instructed and immediately the charging light started blinking and I later plugged it directly to the charger and it's working fine now. Thank you once again.

Hi,

You need to try to hard reset your phone.

Before you do, try if you can, to charge the phone battery so that it has a reasonable amount of charge.

Do not perform a hard reset with the charger connected.

Warning : A hard reset will erase all your downloaded apps and user data and will restore your phone to factory default condition.

To perform a hard reset :

Turn your phone off.

Press & hold the Volume Up and Power buttons together.

Release the Power button when the Mi logo appears on the screen (don’t release the volume up button yet).

When Recovery mode shows, release the Volume Up button

Navigate using the volume buttons (up or down) and confirm by using the power button.

Select “English” (or whatever language you prefer).

Then select “Wipe Reset”.

Next choose “Wipe all data” and confirm by selecting “Yes”.

Be patient the process takes a few minutes.

I tried this with my MI4 Phone. I had purchased the phone on April 03 2015 and the phone went dead on April 24th 2016 exactly after a weak after the warranty period was over. Finally I took it to the MI4 service center at Rajajinagar. I was given a token with number 39 and I had to wait for nearly 2 hrs to get my turn. All that they did was connected my phone to computer USB port and then told me it is hardware problem and they need to change the board and that would cost Rs 10000 + . I had purchased this phone through Flipkart when the phone was first released and spent Rs 20000. The phone was available at a price of about 13000 after a year. I then took it to a local service man Who had repaired my samasung phone at a cost of Rs 3800 for which samasung service center had given an estimate of Rs 8000 for repair. The fellow is still trying I had made at least 20 visit to him. The lesson I had learnt is cheapest is the best wont work. Ximomi should recall all these phones and replace it.

Solved same issue: I connected it to my laptop. Initially, It wasn't displaying any signs of charging. But after 5 minutes, the LED started blinking. 10 minutes post that, my LED light was on and stable. It began charging again!

what about your photos? is it still there in your phone when you reboot? im scared :(

by

@faridahashrose My photos and apps were still in my phone after I managed to switch it on again. What I did was to charge my phone via my laptop (with my phone turned off) till it is fully charged (100%). Then, I pressed the volume button & power off/on button for almost 1 min. My phone was back to life again! ^^

Hi @shin95 ,

Hopefully you have made a "backup of all your data" in case the next time your phone fails you can't get it started at all.
