    Wasn't using it when it happened so I got no idea here.

    Screen won't come on but the light at the bottom blinks... thought maybe it just died but ive had it plugged in for awhile now and nothing. Did a battery pull, nothing. Thought just incase, I took the screen protector off. Still nothing.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Mine all of a sudden turns itself off, meaning just shuts it off instantly.. and the extended battery does not charge to 100% anymore and it just goes to 98%.. Exchanging it on sat...

    On extended batteries you might have to restart it and then recharge it so the kernel can see it change I believe. The og droid was similar

    The yanking everything and letting it sit alone in the corner, torn apart and looking abused did the trick... better have learned its lesson too!
