Possible problem here is that your battery has gone flat. If this is the casr it will not switch on, nor will it charge the battery if you connect it to a charger or usb port. This is because there is a circuit inside the phone which will not allow charging to commence unless there is a certain amount of charge left in the battery. A catch 22 situation. Cure is to either charge the battery on a stand alone charger if you have one, or fiddle the thing by putting some charge into the battery yourself. You can do this as follows.
Number the connectors on the battery 1 to 6 fromthe top, 2 is the positive, and 5 is the negative, now find youself a 4.5 to 5 volt supply and connect pos to pos and neg to neg. Hold them there for a minute or so, then measure the voltage on the battery terminals, you'll probably find somewhere near 3 volts. If so pop the battery back in the Jamin, and connect the charge/sync lead and it should start charging normally, then once charged all should be well.
If you don't feel confident to do this, borrow a battery to see if the phone works on a good one, then look at getting a stand alone charger from ebay.
The above worked fine for me, but I accept no responsibility if you screw up your battery, if in doubt DON'T do it.
Hope that helps.

I mate Jamin

I have had the same problem with my jamin and most of times soft resetting it via the button at bottom solves it. If it happens regularly, you might want to hard reset it. please make sure you backup your data and settings etc
