    Have you tried a different battery? Is there a little red sticker underneath the battery?

    The sticker that is pink usually indicates water damage. Has it fallen in water lately?

    Honestly sounds like water damage to me, especially if its not even taking a charge.

    I would take it to a local providers store and have them try a different battery in the device, hopefully its just a bad/damaged battery.

    If its the device itself that is water damaged then theres nothing ur able to do.

    Do u have insurance on the device at all???

    have you tried plugging it into the wall charger instead of the computer? i wiped my 8520 in an effort to unlock it and let it sit overnight only to wake up to a damn phone that wouldnt turn on. the only way i got it to work was plugging it into the wall charger for about 15 minutes. for some reason, my computer wouldnt charge it....?
