    Default Galaxy SII Won't Turn On

    Was using my phone fine today. Sat it down, came back an hour or so later and it won't turn on at all. Nothing. Not even with the charger. Anyone got any advice?

    Cheers

    1.Press and hold down Volume Up + Home + Power buttons at the same time.
    2.Release all buttons when you see SGS2 Logo.

    That's recovery mode... Does the computer recognize it?

    Taken from another forum (Factory Reset):

    1. press and hold "volume up"
    2. press and hold "Home button"
    3. press and hold "power button"
    4. if Samsung logo shows up, let go "power button"
    5. if a menü with red colour show up, let the 2 button go.
    6. choose wipe factory data reset.
    7. go back and reboot.

    Found that on google, I tried holding the Vol Up + Home + Power button for a good 45sec. Nothing.

    Remove battery for 5 mins. (Also form other forum) It can't really die just like that. May be faulty.

    Pull the sim card out, plug it in to charger, and try turning it on.
