Wondering what I can do to get my samsung galaxy S3 charging. It's been charging all night and still shows 0% charged and keeps saying to plug in to an outlet despite being hooked up to the charger. It won't allow me to turn it on for more than a couple of seconds before it shuts off again. Suggestions on how to fix this would be much appreciated! Thanks.

Take the battery and SIM card out for a minute then put it back together and try a different charger and wall outlet. If neither fix the issue then I think something is wrong with the battery. If it's under a year old, take it to a Koodo shop for repair.
