The phone may not power on for different reasons:

• Battery has discharged


If the battery has discharged and the phone has been left for a long period of time after the discharge, then the battery may need to be charged for a longer period of time before the screen powers on with the charge logo.


Please leave the charger plugged in for up to around 10 minutes.
If the display does not show the battery charging icon then there may be a fault with the charger or phone.
Try another charger or charging cable, however if still faulty  then send the phone to your Authorised Samsung Service centre for assessment.
