hi all, a few days ago my S6 completely died - I had left it charging (i think it ran out of battery completely so was charging whilst off). I think it got to about 80% full (as I remember seeing the image of a battery with plenty of green in it), but next thing I knew, no matter what I tried, it wouldn’t turn on. I could not get a reaction at all.

A couple of old threads I found said it could be battery, so as mine runs out really quickly anyway and this looked like quite a cheap and easy replacement i gave it a go.

Now the phone wouldn't turn on, but I did get light at least - the white led at the top stayed on since installing the new battery for about 4 hours without flashing until it eventually turned off. I’ve tried charging, and now tried all the button pressing combinations but getting no response.

once lockdown is finished here (early dec) I may have to take it to be repaired , if salvageable! (can I take to any phone repair place or has to be samsung btw?)

thanks in advance for any suggestions of anything I can try….
