Moto E4 plus won't turn on, possibly not charging

My phone was running low on battery then shut down suddenly at about 5%, and since then I haven't been able to get it to turn on since. Have tried the volume down+power for over 2 minutes, with no joy. Tried holding volume down and press/release power, nothing. The closest was one try of the 2 minute hold had some 'wrong' screens flash up and go, so it's not completely dead, but at a bit of a loss Smiley Sad

 

Edit: Forgot to add: When plugged in the red charging LED sometimes does a slow blink I've not seen before, but can't find any info as to what error it might be warning about... Otherwise there's no LED at all which I take to mean it's not charging :/

 

Cheers!

Is there anything on the phone that you need to keep?

 

If not can you get into,"Recovery Mode" and try a Hard reset.

 

Hust put moto e4 hard reset  into Youtube for easy to follow videos.
