For the starters, clean the gold plated area of battery and phone. Retry.

Check this video! You have to remove a capacitor - just break it off with something. Just be careful to remove the right one - watch video closely. It worked for me and I was really desperate, because it was such a shame. I like this phone.

Best of luck!

Hello All,

I have S2 I9100G. I feel i am facing the same issue , phone not charging and coming up to life when trying to turn it on.

I tried to see for myself on the phone and could see Capacitor but there are 6 on my device. Could anyone of you suggest me which one should be removed to get this working. Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Rohit
