Posted this in RN4 thread but didnt get much reply, hope can get help from here:

My Malaysian set RN4x is unable to switch on or boot, only red light keeps blinking during charging. Google and it seems like a common problem but different way of rectifications. So far tried a few but not working.

After trying the different self diagnosis suggested by google, my 18months old RN4 still cannot be charged or boot. Brought to Xiaomi Authorised service center to diagnose and was told problem with mainboard, so not worth repairing n paid rm25 for that. My 3year old RN3 still kicking strong.

The xiaomi authorized service center said my phone is gone and data not retrievable. But when I brought to another shop, tested my battery ok but still can't charge and can't switched on, dismantled the battery n powered d phone directly by charger n phone can be switched on and booted, everything still intact felt relieved.
At least now allowed me to savage my data. Will backup all data b4 repairing the shorted mainboard, repairing cost btw rm150-rm250.

Useless xiaomi service center charged me rm25 for a lousy job.

WTA:
1) Is it safe to continue using the shorted phone with direct power while backup the data and reset it to factory setting?
2) Is the repair cost of 150-250 which takes 2 hours too high?
3) Normally would repaired unit last >1 year?

Any opinion is welcome.

not all service center is good and skillful. some of workers just now to get salary only and working based on SOP as xiaomi instruct.
and they also normally wont fix ur damaged phone ( most serious case) since they also want to sell new phone to u. better selling u new phone than fix old phone since profit of new phone much higher than charge u to fix old 1.
they very2 diff compared outside shop.

1. should be ok i guess( make sure the direct power is stable enough)
2. not sure, never repair my phone
3. normally for me, i will only repair if the price is not that high compared if need to buy new phone. but in my entire life, i only encounter 1 phone dies on me, which is nexus 5, and i already use it more than 5 years. which not worth for me to fix it anymore.

Since my RN4 is not working with the internal battery and if I dont get my mainboard repaired, may be I should get a clip-on power bank like this:

If the motherboard is unable to charge the battery, there's no point to buy this.

I tot this external powerbank could be charged directly by charger, need to make sure.

p/s U are right, have to look for something else like a clip-on powerbank which is chargeable externally by charger

You can try any kind of powerbank you want but the bottom line is if your phone motherboard won't even accept charge the phone battery, you are just wasting your money buying all these stuff hoping it will work.
