Esp 12e booting into flash mode

I have a esp 12e (esp8266) which I have been using for some time but suddenly it started causing issue during booting up.
The module keep booting up into flash mode even though the gpio0 is not connected to ground. I even tried to pulling gpio0 high with a 10k resistor but than the built in led just keep glowing very slightly and the module doesn't respond to anything.

The module works perfectly fine when a code is uploaded and then soft reset but again boots into flash mode when I hard reset it.

The connection are
Gpio15--> gnd
Enable --> high (with 10k resistor)
VCC -->3.3v

Any help is appreciated.
