Drained/Bad Battery ¶
Check to ensure that the phone battery is connected. If the battery is connected and your phone still will not turn on, leave the phone on its charger for 15-20 hours. If this does not resolve the issue, you will need to replace the battery.
Faulty AC Power Cord ¶
If the battery has been replaced, it is possible that the AC power cord needs to be replaced.
