    my nokia lumia 520 is not charging when the charger is connected and it will never show the homescreen or anything..... when the charger is inserted it shows a sign of charge and settings.It looks like its system is ok but it just doesn't charge.

    Make sure there is no lint or debris in the charging/data port on the phone.

    Use only the factory cable.

    Do you ever get unexpected shutdowns? You may need to place a folded bit of paper (maybe 3 thicknesses) under the cover so it presses down on the battery and gets a better contact with the pins.
