  1. Model Name: Asus Zenfone Max M2 (Owned for almost 2 years)
  2. Firmware Version: Latest version the time I post this
  3. Rooted or not: No
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: Everytime my phone full drains

This happend to me since the first time my phone fully drained (3 days after I purchased it). I DID NOT use anything to configure my phone like root.

Even after charging for hours, it still doesn't boot.

When charging

Light is red

Doesn't show the charging animation

Only shows the empty battery

I managed to charge my phone by reinserting the cable many times hoping it charges and it does work sometimes.

I'm so tired of it, I need help to fix this thing.

The time I post this, my phone is still dead.
