    Question S2 cannot turn on

    Im surprised to find that my S2 I9100 cant be turned on suddenly. Its running ICS and I didnt do any rooting stuff on it.

    I have tried each of the following:
    -tried holding the power button normally to get the phone on
    -took out the battery and switch another battery, it turns out that its not the battery's problem
    -tried the hold "power+home" thing
    -tried the hold "vol up+power+home" thing
    -removed sim card and try turn on again
    But I still cant get it to turn on and the screen is black of course. Also, I hear no sound from it and there is no vibration.

    Finally I try to plug it to my PC(win8 x64) with the original USB connection cable supplied when I buy my phone, and I get this instantly(though I still cant turn it on):

    Thats all it can do. I still cant turn it on...

    I also tried to see if the Kies software can detect my phone, it turns out it cant...

    PS.: My phone has been running fine for nearly 1 year since I bought it

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Welcome to the forum Johnson.
    That screenshot shows your battery is dead. Plug it in and leave it to charge uninterrupted for 2-3 hours. It may take up to 4 hours to recharge to 100%. Keep in mind, it's not good to completely drain your battery to zero. Try to charge it before it gets below 20%, and keep in mind it's ok (& is recommended) to charge it up anytime before you reach this point.
    If you have tried charging it and still get that empty battery icon, you may have a bad battery and you might try replacing it before doing anything else.
    Good luck!
