Outside of that it sounds like it might be some kind of hardware problem. Might even just be a bad battery. One thing you could try is using an external charger for the battery if you have a universal lithium ion charger or if you know someone who has one. That way you might be able to narrow it down to a problem with the charging circuit in the phone.
thanks for replying

I tried an external power bank but it didn't even turn it on.. so I narrowed it like you said to: the battery is so messed up it won't even charge or the battery is fine but the whole charging circuit is wrong.
Then I took it to an electrician and he said the battery had energy and should start the phone, but it didn't.
After that he charged the battery alone for a little bit with his "whatever kind of car-battery-like thing" but it still was not turning the phone on.
When I came home I plugged it once more to the external powerbank and some how the charging animation appeared..
I let it charge for a while but it didn't seem to progress, so i turned it on and holly crap it turned on
but after the boot animation it vibrated and turned off and now it's not charging again
man.. i thought i had it
i've read about something called sticky power button.. its a hardware problem in the galaxy sII model.. could it be related?
