    Angry Gear won't power on or charge

    It was working fine but I left it unplugged for a couple weeks and now it won't charge or turn on at all.

    Any advice?

    How long have you left it plugged in for? A lot of devices needs to be charged for a little bit before they will turn on if the battery dies. Also, did you try another plug?

    I plugged it in for about an hour. When I plugged it in, I got the little spinning icon. Came back an hour later…bricked.

    I tried 2 different plugs as well as USB to Macbook Pro. Nothing.

    Well that's quite strange but I'm sure you'll take it.

    I'm having the same problem... Though I don't have a Motorola charging block handy to try it. Used it a few times, then turned off for a few weeks, and now nothing. Dead

    Mine stopped turning on so I contacted Samsung support and they told me to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and mine rebooted so now it's back on. I don't know if this will help yours but it won't hurt to try.

    Sounds like your device froze and needed a hard reset.

    Also having this issue after not using my gear for a few days. Tried two different chargers, cleaning the contacts, and reconnecting several times. Hope someone figures this out, have seen several threads about it recently

    Hi guys I*got my gear out the cupboard the other day and it wouldnt charge or turn on when attempted to charge at a socket?? This is a few weeks old. Take the usb off your 3pin plug charger if u have 1 (samsung s4 charger) and plug the gear into a laptop or a desktop and it will start charging slowly. No idea why this works but it does. I think once it goes completely flat it wont charge at a socket outlet. You will all notice that phones and devices take alot longer to charge on laptops and desktops. I think this may have something to do with it. Charge it to 5% on your laptop or desktop and disconnect it and it will start working in your house sockets (charge alot faster). Happy days
