    Sounds like your battery is very dead. Could be because the battery itself has gone to battery heaven. Or because you screwed up the charger cable's micro-USB connection where it goes into the phone, so that it doesn't make proper contact and can't charge. You can check both by putting another, working and charged, battery in your phone. If it works there is nothing wrong with your phone. And if you stick your 'old' battery into another S3 and it turns out to work (after charging) then there's nothing wrong with the battery either. Which leaves the charger as the culprit. With most likely a bent micro-USB connector.
    In that case: replace.

    I think it's the battery as well. Try getting a replacement and let it fully charge before powering on.
