Default Help dead phone

My phone will not power on there is no response whatsoever and the battery is fully charged. Any input is greatly appreciated is it fixable or should I just cut my losses and part the phone out? Thanks in advance.

Well service replacement is not an option for you?

One shot in the dark:
You could try to bridge the contacts of the battery pins (2 sec enough) of the glide (that one where the battery will have contact to the glide). No warranty if that destroys something else.

Another one:
Tremove battery for the whole night try again the next day to boot

Another one:
Buy a new battery (they are about 15$ @Amazon etc) and try that one

Have you installed a recovery? CWM or Twrp?

If twrp: connect your pc via usb to the glide. try to power on the glide and press vol down like you would do to go in recovery, then execute "adb shell" on your pc and you may be able to reach your device

If cwm or no recovery you could try to get into the download mode (even if you cant see anything on the screen) you could try to press vol up and then power on the device while keeping vol up pressed for aabout 30 sec. Then releas vol up and press it short once again then connect your usb cable to the pc and start Odin to see if it will be detected there..

If all those not helping I believe it will be not such easy to fix because you may need to open the glide etc.
