Even if the charger seems to be working, test different chargers and/or cables.

Hi Hels21,


Welcome to the community,


You may also want to try holding the Power Key and the Volume + key for around 10 seconds and see if it vibrates, if it does try powering on the device as per normal and see if it works after this point.
