    Have you tried with a different battery? Are your battery contacts clean? Bent out of shape?

    If it beeps and so on then the battery must be making contact, the first thing i would do is plug it in to the dji assistant and go from there, maybe advanced calibration?

    I know it's basic but just to make sure .....
    You are doing a CSC (putting the controller sticks down and in) aren't you?

    Stay calm.
    FInd the manual and look up the flashes.
    Post the flashes here and we'll try and diagnose it.

    Do you have a second battery? It sounds like a battery issue, more than a Phantom issue. When you have the battery outside of the phantom and turn it on, does it turn off as well, or does it stay on?

    I recommend contacting your dealer. Who did you buy it from? They may replace the battery. What is preventing you from posting a video from a cell phone or camera?
