    My Samsung battery for the S5830i died today and I replaced it with a new one and tried to charge it. But now the phone won't even turn on and it is not even showing the battery charge indication which is very weird. Please help !

    Welcome to Android Central! How long did you let the phone charge with the new battery? Let it sit for 12 hours or so, undisturbed, while plugged in to a wall outlet.

    Thanks so much ! Are you saying that when you charge it for the first time you have to leave it plugged in for 12 hours ?? Normally it takes only 2-3 hours

    If the battery is close to dead, I usually suggest charging it for a prolonged period, just so that you let it charge without disturbing it. 12 hours is my unscientific arbitrary recommendation, more to make sure people don't feel the urge to keep trying to power on every hour or so to see how it's doing.

    Thanks again. I will follow your suggestions now.

    I did disconnect the phone and try to turn it on after having charged the new battery for 2-3 hours. I repeated this action a couple of times. Would this have significantly shortened the battery life ? I hope not !

    No, I don't think it would shorten the battery life.

    Well I charged it for 12 hours and no sign of life. Did it again overnight with the same result. Guess I will have to take it into the Samsung service centre this morning. It is still under warranty as I bought it in early March and it is less than six months old. Very strange experience.
