    so, my OPT ran out of battery. usually, when i try to charge the phone, it will show big battery icon charging right? but it didnt just now. it showed a message saying "battery is too low, charge for a while before turning device on" with battery icon. the problem is, it seems like i cant charge my device. i leave my device to charge for like 3 hours, the same message appear and the battery percentage didnt go up. i tried to charge the phone using other charger (same cable) but it wont work. anyone know what is the cause and how to fix it?

    When this issue happens, remove the charger and then resume charging after 30 to 60 seconds. Then the phone will start charging.

    I had the exact same issue today! Ran out of battery and when I plugged in the charger, nothing happened.

    I tried everything as in this threat but didn't work.

    the only way it worked is when had the phone connected to a computer and I long pressed the power button and the menu key together (out of frustration) and the battery icon with charging symbol came on.

    now it works normal.

    OnePlus please have a look at this issue.

    Thank you guys. It helped.

    PATIENCE is the key here.
    You just need to have some patience till it gets charge a bit. :| :|
    which is really difficult.. i tried power button plus volume low key on n off several times. and wasted almost 3 hours and when i got tired, i left the phn connected to charger just for 15 mins and it returned back to life.. phew... :)

    i will never allow it to drain till 0% now onward :|

    Hold the power button , till phone restarts for 5th time. Let it start and set the time again if it asks. Charging will begin after that.

    Happened to me too... was playing a game while my OPT was around 29% charge... After a while of playing, the mobile vibrated, the screen went off ... then the phone seemed like it was rebooting (the one plus start up logos turned up), but then the mobile didn't turn on.

    I tried the 5 times 20 seconds power button hold, plugged in the charger for 3 hrs, pressing power and volume button to try to boot to recovery mode. Nothing worked. :(

    Still can't get my phone to turn on. Can you suggest anything?
