Can you get it to connect to a computer?

Hold down the power button. (i know) It may seem a bit rude to ask that. But i know some people that have forgot to hold down the power button before.

Try tilting the charger a bit while plugged in to make sure it has a good connective current.

If that doesn’t work, this is a great troubleshooting guide.

The phone is probably saying (if its there at all) "Do you want to trust this device?" So let me do some research and I will list some other ideas.

On an iPhone 8 or later: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Then press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.

Check your LDI indicators to see if your device is liquid damaged. They are little white bars that turn red in contact with a liquid.

never buy a used phone that dosent turn on. especially iphones, because most likely even if you get it to power on the old owners apple id (icloud account) will still be logged in. and if thats the case the phone is a paperweight to anyone but the original owner. i would just open an ebay return and be done with it.
