Black screen and blinking LED

    I was using my phone (Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite) while it charged when the screen suddenly turned off and the charging light started blinking on and off. No buttons respond, I tried to call from a different phone and it came up as turned off or out of range. I've searched the Internet for half an hour and none of the proposed solutions work. There's an added problem: the battery is not removable, so I can't really see if that's the problem by myself, unless I go to some repair shop. I can't launch Safe mode or Recovery mode and basically nothing works. Any suggestions? (Hopefully without losing all my data)

    Welcome to Android Forums, javierdrp!

    I hate to say it, but with no buttons responding, a call from another phone saying it's unreachable, etc., all point to a repair-shop-only option. Unless it's still under warranty--but getting a replacement means losing your data, since you can't -do- anything on it.

    I'd start with a reputable repair shop. Let them analyze it and give you their opinion. Depending on its age, it might not be worth the cost of repairing it. But barring repair, you're going to lose your data.

    But what about your data? Do you have any automatic backups enabled? Dropbox, Google, Google Photos, Amazon Photos, etc.? If so, at least you won't lose everything.

    The OP's phone is unusable. Not quite the same issue!
