    Hiya all,

    I've had my Nokia Lumia 520 for about a year, not had many problems with it. Yesterday, however, I dropped my phone in the car, and the back and battery came out. Seeing as this is pretty normal, I replaced the battery and powered the phone back on.

    I carried on using the phone as normal that day, nothing seemed weird. That night, however, I left the phone to discharge, and this morning I plugged it in, to see it not do anything at all. No vibration, no image, nothing. I thought I would leave it for a while, but after 30 minutes of charging nothing had worked.

    I tried using different wall sockets, tried charging it through my PC and even through the TV USB socket, to no avail. I used different plugs and different cables, nothing would work.

    I suppose this means there's something wrong with the phone? Can someone help me resolve this? Thanks in advance,

    The battery may have run flat overnight. In that case the chip in the battery goes into a coma.

    Plug into the Factory AC Charger and leave the phone alone. No button presses, no attempts to boot it up. Just wait. It usually takes a couple of hours and then the phone boots itself and starts charging normally from around 6% or so. Leave it to charge back to 100% before disconnecting the current and then resume normal use.
