    OK so my Samsung admire broke earlier this week and i have been phone less, so my sister can to visit and she gave me her old mytouch , she said that all it needed was a new battery cause it wouldn't hold a charge, that was ok with me cause they are like less than 5$ on amazon and eBay, so i go to plug the phone into the charger and the charging screen pops up like normal, so i hold the power button trying to turn it on and it doesn't, then i notice that after about 15 seconds of charging the screen has shut off, i press the power button again and nothing.


    so should i just replace the battery or open it up and see if the power ribbon or something is loose or broke.

    15 seconds of "charge" isn't even enough to turn the phone off. Turn it off if it isn't already off, then let it charge for 24 hours before trying to turn it on again.

    its strange cause like i said it will only stay on the charging screen for like 15 seconds, but last night i was messing around with it and found out that it can stay in the download mode as long as it wants(until the battery died)
