LT18i stopped turning on after removing battery

I have Xperia arc s LT18i, the phone became slow so I removed batery n tried to turn on, but it's not lighting or vibrating or anything!

 

I cant connect to PC cz: 1. PC stopped recognizing my phone from a long time, 2. phone is fully off and pc isn't seeing any new usb connected when i connect phone

 

I cant enter fastboot and flash modes to see if i can do anything cz phone isn't lighting anything

 

my phone is permenantly off and not sensing that im ppressing power or connecting charger or usb and not sensing anything

 

I tried to remove battery for some time but didn't help

Connect the phone to a wall charger > press and hold power for 10 seconds > let it charge for 2 - 3 hours > try to repair it again with PCC, if that doesn't work then you might need a new battery.

recently when i got the battery empty FOR THE FIRST TIME, the phone started eating battery life always! (charge 5h and empty in 30m)

It's hard to tell, but the Xperia Arc was released 4 years ago, chances are that the battery can't hold as much power as before.

But how does that happen? remove battery then reconnect and puff! phone isn't turning on!

If a new battery doesn't solve the problem, you might want to stop by your local Xperia Care
