Welcome to the forums!
i have the same prob
Can you be more specific?
With the phone completely off, if you connect the charger does the screen show a battery graphic showing the current battery level and charging activity?
When you turn the phone on do you hear any audio tones (like the phone is booting up)?
Have you tried a different battery?
What happened just prior to the problem (dropped, etc)?

Get a computer or a laptop. Get a usb cable and plug in in to the computer. Take the battery out. Now plug the cable into your phone. Unplug cable. Put battery back in. Phone should come on if not take sd card out and try again. You can put the battery in while cable is in Phone also.

You start by giving us an idea of what's wrong with your phone.
Along with basic information like model number, carrier and firmware version.

After I did that the phone started charging. But I just bought a charging port from Amazon and watched the youtube video to change the port. Takes about 10 minutes with a small husky set 16-in-1 precision screwdriver set from home depot.both were around $7 a piece. Phillip screws... :'( :-\ :-$ :D
