Two days ago I connected my Ascend to a PC to copy some new ROM to a memory card. I've deleted some unnecessary files to make room for ZIP, start copying and at app. 97% done it says "disk is full" although it had almost 2GB of free storage. I thought it might be a bad memory card and disconnected phone from PC to remove it and insert another one. Then I realised that LED is still red, like while it was connected. I've tried to wake it by pressing POWER, and nothing happened. Then I removed and re-inserted battery, pressed POWER again - still nothing. I've connected it to the charger - no response, no LED indicator. Then I've tried to enter recovery, fastboot, download modes, nothing. After that, I reconnected it to USB and computer says "USB device found", installed some drivers and said everything is OK, although it was powered off.

So, my question is, obviously - should I trow it to a garbage can, or it still can be saved? I must say I'm a rather experienced Android phones user, and this definetly lookes like a hardware failure or maybe a dead battery to me, but I hope somebody had a similar problem and might have some kind of advice or even solution.

This seems a lot like hardware failure but before we jump into that, try ordering a new battery to check, as you did nothing to your device so yeah, if it still doesn't boot well it a probably hardware issues

Sounds dead to me... Another to add to the collection. Couple of questions,

Where do you live and how old is the phone? - Just data for my chart and also I maybe able to aid what to do next. :)

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

My Device:

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!
