    Welcome to the forum ...so your Droid X2 after you plug it in and leave it plugged what do you see for battery percentage on the status bar ... it's possible the battery needs to be replaced ...

    It would show the battery was full but the second I unplugged the charger it would shut off.I just preformed a hard reset with it turned off and now it is coming on without the charger connected.so im hoping this is a long term fix and nothing short term.it was a shot in the dark but seems to have worked!! I hope!!

    I'd try to clean the battery connections. If that don't work, it could be that the battery is done

    Tapped from a Nexus 6

    A Q-tip works good. Also, if you have a multimeter you can see if the battery has a charge. If the battery & connections are good, there may be something broken inside the phone, maybe from a drop
