Default [Q] Nexus s doesn't charge and doesn't turn on

Hello I have a nexus S i used for a few days... than i ditched it for another phone and i left it in a drawer... this about a month ago... now it won't turn.
I tried to charge the phone but it's just flat line... no light, no signal of power... nothing.

The phone worked just fine up until i put it in the drawer... so i don't understand....

Any idea?

sounds like the battery lost completely all of its charge. usually when that happens, the battery is done for. try another nexus s battery.

it happened to me once, on my nexus one. i couldnt get it to charge after hours of trying. so i called htc to get a replacement battery. while i was on the phone with htc, it out of the blue, started charging. so i kept my original battery and got a free replacement from htc

try pulling the battery out while still plugged in, then put it back in. try wall charger and try usb. even try putting the battery in the freezer for an hour or so(i doubt itll help though).

At the end I had to play McGiver but it worked just great...

I jump started the battery as shown in this video

If you are performing it on a new phone's battery this process is not for the faint of heart... but I had ordered already a new battery so I just took the gamble...

Anyhow for whoever may have the same problem this WORKS.
