Since few days my GTA04 is not charging the battery! I tried a new 
battery, new usb- cable, wall charger instead of PC/ USB- HUB. No 
chance. If I plug in the cable, the display illumination is on 100%. 
Then it takes 2-3 seconds and the charging symbol is shown on display 
and LED in power switch is red. 10 minutes it seems to be charging 
(without increasing bar in battery symbol!) and showing "-249/mA" in 
idle screen, but then charging stops! Plug off an plug in the USB cable, 
then the 10 min. period starts again. But without real charging! The 
battery symbol remains empty and red!
Now, the battery is drained. The second (new one), also. If I plug in 
the USB cable, GTA04 is switching on and showing GoldenDel. screen 
(power LED green) and boot menu (qtmoko, NAND, 1.sh, 2.sh with red power 
LED). If I choose one option, the phone tries, but then booting starts 
So, what can I do to get it working? Is the phone dead?
