My 8520 just cpmpletely shut off and wont turn back on.

It had enough battery power but just shut off and wont turn back on, even after charging.  I tried to remove the battery and put it back, still nothing, only the red light indicator is steadily on.  What needs to be done to restore the device?

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

Try leaving it on the charger yet doing nothing with it for at least 2 hours. Then try to power it on.

 

Good luck and let us know!

thank you.  my sister said the same thing.  apparently the battery was TOTALLY drained and did not charge properly.  we left it connected to the charger for about an hour and voila, it's back on. 

 

thanks so much for replying!
