What happened just before this event? Did he drop it or get it wet?

Has the battery been allowed to get below 20% on a regular basis?

Is the device detected by Desktop Manager?

What model? Since recognized by desktop manager, try backup all your files, you can do this using BBSAK (PM me and I'll give u directions), then wipe and reinstall the OS... If u need steps on how to achieve this, email me. [email address]. Hope this helps
