Is my HiBook bricked for good?

I had my HiBook for about a year.

About a month ago it suddenly bricked itself, for no appearant reason.

I then ordered the CH341A flash programmer, flashed the BIOS, even tried both versions here.
Didn't change a thing. A month ago, the power LED of the docking keyboard would sometimes work/flicker, but now even that stopped. Charge light doesn't work either, of course.
I checked the battery, its output is at ~3V.

Any ideas, or should I go prepare its grave?

Just to make sure, it is the HiBook and not HiBook Pro you have ?
I do NOT work for Chuwi. Please DO NOT pm or email me with problems you may have!

Well, the HiBook Pro wasn't even out back then... ^^

It's the dual boot HiBook, model CWI514 to be exact.

leave it on charge for 6 to 12 hours, even if there is no power / charge led.

Did that the whole day just for good measure, no change anywhere.

whilst plugged in on the 3 amp charger try holding down power button for 30 seconds, then three presses in quick succession. Might take a couple of tries. Otherwise the battery has had it. My HiBook was bought about a year ago, on release and my battery is now definitely showing fatigue.
