Question about Samsung GALAXY S4
My android won't charge the battery at all, although it gets very hot when it is plugged. The device remains completely off, even after trying to charge it for half an hour. It won't even show if it is charging or not.
I would have to agree with the solutions posted previously. It certainly sounds like the battery has failed completely and won't even attempt to take and hold a charge. The best bet is to find a new battery and try that, if it works then you'll know for sure that was the problem. If not, then you'll need to take it to someone who can repair these new phones and let them have a shot at it.

My opinion: Buy a replacement battery at a decent price from a highly rated seller on eBay. IF the phone does not respond any differently, then dispose of it. It WILL fail, the only question is whether it will be silently, or in a flash of really hot fire. The only thing that can happen if a new battery doesn't cure this issue, is a nasty fire which can cause tremendous property damage, injury and even death. I am surprised you have been messing with that phone for this long. Yes, they are AWESOME phones. Yes they do some great stuff - I know folks who won't give up their SG phones for all the money in the world. Ultimately, ALL phones can be dangerous. Get rid of it.
This phone is a fire hazard, and having seen what Lithium-Ion batteries can do I would HIGHLY recommend you recycle it. DO not mess with it. One. Day. More.

Well if it's new, then I would take it back to the store from where you bought it. It will be under warranty so, if something is wrong you should be able to get it swapped out with a working one.

Have you try to use another similar charger to charge your phone to see if it ill charge? because it could be that your charger is bad,. But if you have done that and it is same thing, it means the charging port of your phone is malfunctioning, that is why you have to use repetitive effort before it can charge.
Your battery is not charge due to the bad charging port of your phone, so your phone battery can not hold charge.
To resolve 1 and 2 problem of your phone, all you need to do is to change the charging port of your phone in other for your phone battery to charge and for your battery to charge.
Replace the charging port as said and you will see that your phone battery will charge.
For your screen, is it that the entire screen is black that you cannot see anything, not even text or see names from your contact? if it is, what you need to do is to change the flex on the the screen of your phone and you will see that your screen will display as you want it.
