    Try replacing the battery. When they don't charge normally, discharge while charging or drain quickly its usually a sign that the battery is dead.

    Mine recently had the same problem. It is not the battery. The charging port on the phone is bad. I had to get a replacement...problem solved.

    you updated and i hope the problem is solved.

    completely drained.
