My Samsung Galaxy Note2 is not powering on?

Samsung Galaxy Note2 is not coming up, and I can't even see any light. What could be wrong?

There are a number of reasons your Samsung Galaxy Note2 may not be powering on. The most obvious reason is that your phone may not be charged completely. Plug your Galaxy Note2 into its AC wall adapter and let it charge. You should see an LED come on when the device is plugged in. If you don't, try charging your Galaxy Note2 with a USB port on your computer. If your device charges from the wall, your computer isn't giving your phone enough power to charge -- you'll have to charge it from the wall from now on. However, if your computer charges your phone and its wall charger doesn't, the wall charger is broken and you will have to purchase a new one. If your device doesn't charge through either of these methods, you may have a faulty charging port; contact Samsung to set up a repair. If your device does charge but it still won't turn on, you may have a faulty battery or another faulty internal component. You will still need to contact Samsung to schedule a repair. If you're under warranty and you didn't do anything to cause the malfunction, you will be covered and you won't have to pay for the repair. However, if you dropped it in water or did something else that would cause a malfunction, you will have to pay for a repair.
