Can you send a picture? This can be hard to diagnose, as this can happen for many, many reasons. If I am able to see it, then I can better diagnose what is going on.

I would imagine that a fungal infection has set in. Make sure to only water when the top of the soil is almost completely dry. At this point, if all leaves are turning brown, then it could be that it is passed the point of saving.
