it have nothing to do with auto rcm, auto rcm or not if you powered your switch in rmc mode and let it run out (you cant really tell since the screen is off) then the battery would be drain

so, plug it, wait a day, and if it still dont work then it will be time to try something else

ps: it will mostly take more than a night, basically the battery have no protection against deep discharge in rcm, so if you have let the switch in rcm mode (without injecting payload) by mistake it will discharge more than it should be and it will look like its dead, even if you plug it (no charging icon, no reaction if you start to boot it, etc)
so if you plug it it will charge veeeeery slowly until enought power is in the battery to start normaly again, i wont give any number but when i said "a day" i was actualy thinking around 24-ish hour

so no way to power up it? its been 10 days....have to send for repair?

You may short circuit something for it refusing to turn on, or fried the M92T36 chip that control power if you actually used a third party dock, unplugging and putting the battery back in power cycle the unit. Since you said you need Jig everytime so it is not on autorcm.
