Try charging it via a USB port on a computer and see if that works.

Yes that works ty...Does that mean a part of the charger is not working?

That's normal. The battery doesn't have enough of a charge to run the phone, so it shuts off. Allow the battery to charge for at least a half an hour, this will allow the battery to build a charge, then you can try turning it on.

You're welcome. If the charger is at fault, verify that the lightning bolt or battery animation appear in the phones' notification area while the phone is charging. If there's no animation present, or the battery percentage/level doesn't increase over time, the charger is defective in some way.
