    I forgot the pin for my old Samsung Galaxy S5 and I used up my 10 attempts and the phone turned off and I can't even see it charge or turn it back on.

    Battery was on 65%, I figured it would prompt me to sign into my google account after too many attempts so I ignored the final attempt warning screen.

    I'd just like to know what I can do and if anyone knows what happened.

    Have you tried the button combinations to see if you can boot into Recovery or Download Mode?
    Any reaction at all when connected to charger, red LED, vibration, or tone?

    Yes, I've tried those multiples tines which is how figured out that I couldn't turn it on. I've taken the battery out and everything. I'm afraid that it may have reset and while it was trying to wipe the phone, I took the battery out and may have messed it up by doing so.
