Mi MIX 3/Mi MIX 3 5G

I have had my Mi Mix 3 5g for a number of years. It was working absolutely fine until.. it started having a few 'google play has stopped responding' type errors popped up in a row, and then the phone went off.
It now:
  • no longer lights up when plugged in (i.e. no leds)
  • can't be turned on (have tried leaving it plugged in for several hours then power switch, also leaving it unplugged several hours as well)
  • can't get to fastboot/reset (power switch + volume up) or (power switch + volume down)
  • Connecting it to the PC detects it as 'Qualcomm HS-USB QDloader 9008' under ports (com3) in device manager.

It was completly stock and no funky business had been done.

I tried Xiaomi support, but they couldn't help. I asked for a repair quote but also havn't recevied one.

Is the phone dead dead? why did it just stop? can it be fixed? A quick google suggests deep flashing (EDL mode) and stuff like that might be possible.. but it is a bit beyond me.

Ok, I would recommend to NOT charge it for now. I will ask our ROM specialist to jump in,it's his area of expertise. But that doesn't sound immensely promising TBH.

sorry to hear about your phone, it can be brought back to life but it's not easy.<br>
As you have said in your post you will have to try the EDL testpoint method to unbrick it as a last resort.<br>
First I would try to flash the device using MIflash tool as this is a simple process and doesn't mean having to open the device.
if you need any help please drop me a PM<br>
