| | One way to solve it
I am on a trip in UK and have had same exact problem. I hve now had to buy 3 new batteries during my trip. Expensive...but if you are deperate, it works
I think the problem arises when the battery gets so low, the phone wont recognize it to charge properly somehow. When you put in a new battery---even if its not charged, it has engough power to boot phone.
I think there must be a bug that doesnt reset the charge system somehow
I hope you fig this out.
