replaced battery now only get white led light
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 still doesn;t turn on, but I do get light at least - the white led at the top has been on for about an hour now since installing the new battery and trying to turn it on. I’ve tried charging for 30 mins, 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….
update - it’s about 4-5 hours later and the light has gone off! Sadly i’ve tried all the button pressing combinations again and nothing happens…..giving phone a full charge now before trying again….
