Why can't I get my phone to turn on?

My phone has failed to turn on or charge for a long time now, it looks ok, it has light white marks inside the back cover which may be water marks. The battery may be knackered, I'm not sure.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Score 5



I have a strange powering on problem too. My phone shuts off after using it for a few minutes won't turn back on without the charger. It can only be used constantly when charged.

Update: does not turn on at all, not even with a charger.

Replaced battery with a relatively new one from another phone (3 weeks) still doesn't turn on.

I would be most grateful for help.I'm desperate and I can't find any forum with this exact problem.
