    My android phone is dead. It is not starting up & not charging while charger & data cable are OK.

    Phone was not in use for 20-25 days & when try to on it, it couldn't start. I try to charge it but it was not showing anything(usual battery symbol). I left it on charging for 5-6 hours & again try to on it but it couldn't start.
    It is not showing anything like welcome screen. I tried power button+vol. up/down key but nothing happened.
    Now it is completely dead & its warranty period has been over.
    I took it to local repairer (not confirm whether had sufficient knowledge of android phones or not) he examined it said "its hardware is OK problem may be of of software." Then he went to another person. He tried to install its software (I think OS). According to him files were written but 2 files were creating problem in writing.

    Please help what to do.
    Phone details are:
    Manufacturer- Karbonn
    Model - A9+
    OS - Ice Cream Sandwitch
    Processor - 1.2 GHz dual core (Snapdragon S4)

    Welcomet to Android Central!

    While a deep discharge can harm the battery I would certainly try holding the power button for 20-30 seconds to see if the phone twitches or resuscitates.

    Battery may indeed be the problem. If the phone is so deeply discharged that there is not enough power to engage the charging circuits you could be in trouble. It may require a warranty repair to resuscitate.

    I'm not too familiar with those phones--is it easy to replace the battery? If so, that should definitely be one of your first steps.

    And it isn't clear to me--was the repair person actually able to power on the phone while working on it?

    Battery is charging by universal charger & reaching to sufficient voltage level (measured by multimeter). Could you suggest me alternate ways to power up phone like connecting through PC or likethat?
    Also, As I've mentioned earlier warranty period has been over. Now what are the alternates?

    Even if the warranty period is over you should still be able to have the phone repaired, it just won't be for free at the OEM's cost. You'll have to decide if the cost associated with getting it repaired is justified.
