graeme, check the charging port and make sure it is not bend or has any debris in it. You can clean it with a few puffs of air and some isopropyl alcohol. Make sure that you charger is working properly. Use a multimeter and see what it puts out. After that, you may have to open up your Galaxy and change the battery.

new battery and still won't charge, even losing charge overnight while plugged in. tried different outlets, no help. battery runs out while plugged in! what is going on?


I have seen this due to malware. Try TrendMicro to clean-up your device, if/when you get it to turn on. I've used them for years.
