After this time disconnect the phone from the charger and let the phone sit for about an hour.
Finally push and hold the power button until the phone turns back on.

Inspect the charging cable and the wall outlet for debris or dirt. Try different outlets and cords to determine if it is a problem with the phone, charger or outlet.
