The two most likely causes: The battery could be dead. Lithium-ion batteries (as well as other types of rechargeable batteries) wear down over time. Even sitting on a shelf they eventually decay, but they decay faster the more you use them, and the more they're exposed to extreme heat, cold, and humidity.

If you didn't back up any of your data, it is gone. Hopefully you did; I'm pretty sure anytime you send in a device for service, they warn you that it could be ...

I was losing hope of finding this on my Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet which runs Android 4.4.4, but finally I did. On my device it's under Settings -> Device -> Personalisation -> Status bar icons. Hope this helps you find it on your Samsung device as well.
