    My samsung s5 (SM-G900F) will not take any charge. This happened yesterday I think. I put it to charge before going to bed, and when I woke up, it had only 7% power. When I put the charger in, It only gets to a screen which shows a battery with a thunderbolt on it, as if indicating it needs to be charged. This screen does not appear if I just press the powerbutton. Here is a video of how it behaves: www . youtube . com/watch?v=Tp1hO7OImFQ
    I cant figure out what is going on, it is as if its recieving minimal amounts of power, enough to make it light up, but not enough to actually charge.

    Things I have tried :
    -Lifting the chargeplate inside the usb port on the phone
    -Pressured air to remove any lint
    -Using my friends charger
    -Charging from the Computer
    -Charging from the socket
    -Removing the microSD card
    I would try another battery, but I dont have another, and I dont want to buy one just to test...

    Any suggestions and help would be greatly appericiated.

    If you have cleaned the contacts, pushed the battery onto the contacts (bit of packing behind it) and still no joy, I reckon it's a safe bet that your battery is dead...
