    Hello Edmund. Welcome to the forums.

    I'd start by removing the battery then replacing it, making sure that the contacts on both the battery and the battery compartment are clean (I've used a pencil eraser and alcohol wipe to clean those contacts on an old device).

    It is possible that after a year of heavy use, your Lithium-Ion battery has become defective. If the cleaning regimen does not change the behavior, I'd just purchase a new battery.

    Does the phone turn on with only battery power or do you need to supply external power via usb to get it to turn on?
