    Welcome to Android Central! What do you mean when you say another person with the same phone tried it but it didn't work? That person tried your old battery and your new battery, and it didn't work in his phone? Or the person tried to turn your phone on and was unsuccessful?

    If a new battery didn't help, then I would be concerned about some hardware failure. Best case scenario is that the Power button is faulty. Worst case scenario is the motherboard failed. Are you able to boot into Recovery mode? [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.
