Galaxy s2 wont turn on. Cant access recovery mode

Guys,

 

Really need your help.

 

My Samsung Galaxy S2 is 1 yr old. Last two days, it wont start up. Not charging and even I could not access the recovery mode (Volume up+Home+Start). Even soft reset (battery out 10 seconds and start button). Tried connected to computer(KIES) but phone was not detected.

 

Any idea?

Sounds likes something has failed completely, I would send it off for repair.

Thanks Jonsie and MI5.

If you have a Samsung repair centre close by it might be worth going direct rather than through O2.
