    Let it charge for a little bit, it is completely dead. Mine has done this before. It just needs a little juice to be able to power back up

    Confirming what others are saying, it's simply so drained of battery it needs more time to charge before it can turn on. I suspect this is to prevent the possibility of the phone dying mid boot up, which sometimes screws things up.

    This was the case - and actually was just an indicator of a bad charging port - I plugged it into another port in the hotel wall and within 5 minutes we were up and running with 2-3% battery and climbing.

    I have experienced the same issue this weekend. Phone has completely died and when connected on power, only windows logo was blinking.
    Even 8 hours of charging did not fixed the issue and when performed soft reset by pressing power + volume down, phone vibrates, but situation remains the same. I was desperate.
    Then I tried to remove SIM card and plug the charging. Suddenly phone starts charging and after some time, phone wakes up to normal.
    Hope i helps to you

    If it doesn't stop after a few min of charging, try the opposite. Let it sit for 15 min then try again.

    Hi there i have come across this problem with my lumia 1520.
    Totally dead wont charge icon just flashes
    I had it plugged into laptop for around 3 or 4 hour and nothing
    I then plugged the usb wire into the plug head and had it charging all night and nothing!
    It is not the original charger wire though or plug but it fits and the windows icon just flashes
    I have tried soft reset and nothing not even a vibration
    I have tried holding all buttons in and nothing

    Any ideas??

    Cheers

    Maybe try a different cable? I have one cable that will allow communication with the computer, but won't charge the phone at all.

    My battery has gone from shutting off at 30% to shutting off at 80% to not charging past 50% now. Im assuming need a new battery, in US where can I order one from that will come with tools needed & not cost me arm & leg? Amazon & eBay were no help.

    I know that etradesupply has them. Not sure who else. You will need a Torx T2 screwdriver (to remove the screw that lets you take the back off), a guitar pick or similar (to remove the case), a blowdryer (to loosen the adhesive between the battery and the back of the phone), and a few credit cards or similar to slide between the battery and the back as the adhesive loosens.

    When I do this, I am usually trying to preserve the battery for future use, and it can take an hour almost just to get the battery out. I suppose if I wasn't concerned with trashing the battery, I could probably do it in about 15 or 20 minutes.

    If you have any questions re:install, feel free to ask. I just changed a screen today on a 1520, so it's fresh.

    I found new battery on "repairs universe" that with all the tools you said I would need & express shipping that'll have it here today was cheaper than could get just battery on etrade supply so if you'd work for etrade supply sorry😉 otherwise maybe you'd like to check out repairs universe for your replacement parts. I just need to borrow a hairdryer, one of the few girls that dont own one. Do I use high heat to remove adhesive? Maybe the 1000s of times my phones hit the ground will hv loosened it up....😉

    Short bursts of heat. You don't want to damage any components inside the phone. The one I just did, actually, I was able to use minimal heat, and slide a couple of credit cards under the battery to get it out. The less hear the better. If you are not saving the old battery, you don't have to be as gentle with it. I was saving it for reuse.

    So, you might want to try sliding a credit card or two under it, as opposed to heating it up.

    Thanks, I was thinking that too much heat could melt stuff inside so I'll try it without first. My phones just bout 2 yrs old so maybe wont be quite as sticky as could be? Thankfully I dont have any credit cards anymore but got enough other crap round here im sure ill find something that'll work. Mailman should be here soon with it but ill let u know how it goes, im pretty used to fixing stuff just never dinked with a phone before so I sure appreciate all ur help!

    Truth be told, I don't have credit cards either. I used an old hotel room key and an expired Sam's Club card. It will probably be stuck in there pretty good, but if you use some patience, should be ok. I hope that fixes your issue.

    I DID IT!!! And phone still vibrates which I had heard it may not after changing. Took me all day cuz I only ordered t2 screwdriver, forgot the t5. There ain't one t5 screwdriver on my farm or my parents t10 is smallest one anyone has but found a 30in1 micro precision kit at hardware store in their cheap tool bin so now I got bout every micro size tool I could ever need. Man, thanks alot for all ur help, im use to fixing stuff I can whack with a hammer if it ain't cooperating so this felt like delicate brain surgery to me😊

    Awesome - congrats.

    I think the vibrator issue is related to changing the screen, because you have to take it out, and it's easy to damage the ribbon cable that feeds it, but you don't need to do that on a battery only replacement.

    Glad that worked for you.

    I'm sorry I forgot the T4 (actually a T4?). I was sitting thinking what could that be for, but I just remembered - the bracket over the plug. Sorry again - those things are almost impossible to find locally - glad you were able to.

    Ya ur right, think was screen replacement I read caused vibration problem & dont worry bout forgetting to mention a screwdriver, I'll be happy bout having the pile of micro bits next time need some oddball screw out.
    Didn't have any problems getting battery out, actually hardest part for me was getting my case off, since im a big klutz I wont use a phone till in a big bulky case thats hard to get off. Thanks again for ur expertise & for not making me feel like an ***** cuz didn't know WTH I was doing.
