Nokia Lumia 520 won't turn on

I have owned a Nokia Lumia for 2 months now. The other day I let the battery completely died down. When I came to put it on charge the battery symbol appears of the screen to show it charging but no matter how long I leave it on charge for it doesn't turn on. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hold power and volume down for about 20 secs then try charging again. Sometimes it can take a long time to kick in.

If the above solution doesn't work. Open the back, take out the battery, blow any dust off the contacts and replace.
Apart from that, its still under warranty so take back to the shop

If your phone is not turning on, you may need to get a new charger- I have needed to purchase a new charger several times in order to keep my phone running.

Might be something wrong with the battery.

It's likely to be a problem with the phone, the battery or the charger.

Regardless, you might be better off taking it back to where you purchased it and get a replacement if the current suggestions to get it working don't work.

Try turning it on with the charger out

I was about to reply, but noticed the original post was from February. Hopefully, almost six months later, the OP has fixed the problem :smileywink:
