    Make sure to try the soft reset (power+volume down) first or hard reset (power+volume down+camera button) then when it vibrates, stop pressing the power button and hold the camera and volume down for 15 more seconds then leave your phone for a while (5-10 mins)

    i want you to try a hard reset again but keep the phone plug it even after you've done it (power+volume down+camera button) then when it vibrates, stop pressing the power button and hold the camera and volume down for 8 more seconds then leave your phone for a while (20mins), if this doesn't work again then let the battery drain completely
