Try plugging it into your PC. Have iTunes open. I had a problem similar to this on my 2nd gen iPod touch, wouldn't boot with charger, but it did when I plugged it into my computer.

If it comes up with connect to iTunes logo, you may need to restore it

I have a black screen after charging a samsung j3 2016 phone. tried several suggestions from utube but nothing helped. its in perfect shape only 6 months old

if you press the button on the rh side of the screen
That is the on/off button and may require a bit of fiddling to get it to switch on as it only moves a bit and is smaller that most fingers
next press the bottom at the bottom of the screen
the j3 units takes a few seconds to respond to on/ off so press once then wait for a reaction
if the battery is charging , regardless of on/off the battery sign will appear with the % of charge when the charger is plugged in so if that is not appearing , it could be a faulty charger
you can download a full pdf version if you google -- user manual for samsung J3 mobile phone --

Once i put it on charger it respond for 5 minutes only then it stops there.And it shows black white screen.

Check your cable, might be loose. Try it with a different charger and see if its the same thing. If it is you might need to have your phone serviced for the port where you plug in your charger. The only other problem could be the battery might be worn out and need replacement.

My blackberry 8100 pearl is dead ...

I was having this same issue and I was thinking it was caused from me dropping my phone. I tapped lightly around my phone after trying turning it on for several hours and now it has come back on which means there is most likely a loose connection inside somewhere. I hope this helps.
