Hi guys, the other day my phones battery went 0% as i couldnt get to a charger at that moment in time. As a result my Z1 can not charge or power on. Ive tried multiple plugs and chargers all having no effect. Any help appreciated.
(Ive also looked over the forums but cannot find anything effective)

I've had the same problem as you, sometimes "it" sorts "its" self out, (after leaving the phone alone for 24 hours the problem seems to go away) and you can charge the phone again, other times, it stays and you have to contact support and sent your phone off,
sometimes its stuck, in the bootloader, which would keep the phone on, try power button and vol up at the same time for 30 seconds or longer! this will force the phone to reboot, if the phones low on power it wont reboot but turn off, try the charger again and you should get the red light, if you see no red light, and you have tried everything for 3 days, ring support and get it replaced

If the battery is 100% drained you might have to leave the phone with the charger connected for an hour or so before it shows any signs of life again.

Im having the ssame problem with my Z1, when i put it on the charger the charging light will sometimes come on or not. I did a software repair and still nothing. It can switch on then just switches off and wont switch back on. Is it maybe the battery?
