Phone won't power up or charge

Hi, a buddy of mine recently gave me his old Moto Z force, and i'm hoping to fix it up and use it. The issue is that the phone won't charge or turn on at all. No charging lights when plugged in. I tried the charger in his moto and it worked fine, so no issues with the charger. Apparently before the phone broke, when he would charge it, the battery would get very hot, but one day it just quit on him. He brought it into Verizon, and they told him that they thought that it was a battery issue, and that the battery needs replacing. I just want to see what people's experience is with this issue. I'm just hoping it was just a battery issue and nothing too major. but the phone was free, so i'm not afraid to throw money at it to fix it. Thanks a ton!!

To me this does sound like a battery issue, I'd take it in for a battery replacement. It looks like your battery just overheated and gave up. Also check the charger as I once plugged in a bad charger and it pretty much melted away. Anyways hoped this helped in some way.

U need to replace your battery. Mine started to act funny and it would randomly shut off even though it showed I had a charge. It was all over the place - 30, 50,80, 15, 10,95%. It didn't matter. After it shut off it would display zero charge when I hit power button. As soon as I put it on charger it would show whatever the previous charge was. So for example if it showed 30% before it shut off, it would show that after I put it in charger for a little while. But if I removed charger and turn back on it would go on at first, but then shut off not long after. It git progressively worse and fast. It got to the point where I had to keep it in a charger or have a battery pack on it in order to use it. And after a while it seemed the battery pack wouldn't even revive it only actual charger. Anyway I did factory reset, conditioned battery and nothing worked. I found this site and ordered a battery kit and I just replaced my battery and it works great. Very happy because I basically have a new phone now. As far as the replacement procedure, I suggest u take your time in order to prevent damage when u take it apart. I do have some more tips that might help, if u are going to do it. Just let me know. Good luck

What other tips do you have? My LG G4 just went completely dead. I already got a new battery, installed it and plugged into the quick charger and wall outlet. Did not get a power light or a screen that shows it is charging. Is it possible that the battery in it got hot enough to overheat the interior and melted something so now nothing works. Won't charge and won't power up. Maybe the new battery is DOA also. This phone has been around since 2016 and I guess the batteries could lose their power if they sat in a warehouse too long.

I have also tried several different charger cords...all are LG cords and plug into this phones port. The new battery is an LG OEM battery. There is no way to reboot or do a factory reset of the phone when it will not even power up.
