Try charging it and then turning it on. It might be dead. These phones have the tendency to lie about battery percentage for some reason. Once, I charged my phone up to a 100%, used till 80%, rebooted, and suddenly it dropped to 40%

yeah i know the battery percentage is messed up with this phone. but yeah, the phone is completely dead. it went from the screen not working, to it not charging correctly, to it being completely dead, it wont even charge..

Let it charge overnight, maybe your battery crapped out.

This happened to my phone as well a few weeks after rooting and flashing the Unsensable rom (not sure if the root has anything to do with it). Also happened to me in class lol but the I left it charging over night and the next morning it turned on, so not sure what to tell you other than keep messing with it
