Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.

Remove the charger from the S2 and hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.

Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the unit and charge it.

Let me know the results please

Thank you
