Good News!!!! I left the phone for 12 days without attempting any self repairs or trying to charge it. I then plugged it in today with the same charger I have always been using. viola!!! It showed a blinking red light, I left it to stew for 2 hours+ then the red light became stable and the phone powered on. Thanks alot @jayeff for your words of encouragement. Happy to announce that my phone is back on.
Does your laptop over heat? I am not too knowledgeable about Macs but when I had a HP laptop that exhibited this behaviour it was due to a dead fan which caused over heating and made my laptop shutdown intermittently .
hello guys, I removed the battery and disconnected the laptop from the mains for 24hrs. Then did that Lenovo static trick: I pressed the power button 10 times, holding for 1 second each and after that held it down for 30 seconds. I coupled everything back together again and the laptop came on. I am happy again.
