After having my torch for 19months. Iv recently started having problems with my battery, it began with the battery life lasting less and less after a full night on charge and now it turns itself off numerous times during the day. the only way i can turn it on again is by taking the battery out or by putting it back on charge. but as soon as i take the charger out the problem persists.
Iv recently bought a new battery from a market and this has anything but solved the problem as when the new battery is in the phone doesnt turn on at all. and the instructions in the packet on the new battery are anything but clear.
if anyone can advise me what i can do or how i set up the new battery correctly so my phone works. i'll be grateful.

After 19 months of dependable service, your original battery is probably done. Almost two years on a smartphone battery is about right.
As for your new battery acting up, try plugging your phone in to charge it. Once it's connected, remove the battery then put it back in a few seconds later. Let it charge overnight. If you're still having issues with it the next day, repeat this procedure. Do this at least 3-4 times before giving up on it.
Try that and post back with your results.
