Android Phone Wont turn on here is what to do

There’s nothing worse than coming across an Android smartphone that just does not care anymore. Besides you have no idea what might be causing the problem, it is also very difficult to have a sense of how you can solve it. Fortunately, in most cases, this is not caused by something so serious, and the battery of the device may have simply given some sort of unexpected error. In such situations, you can resolve the situation by yourself in no time. So check out our top tips below for what to do when your Android does not turn on!

1. Press the Power button for longer

Before performing any more advanced procedure, you can try the simplest thing possible in these cases: push the Power button for longer. Generally, when an Android smartphone does not turn on, people press the Power button for a few seconds and quit, but in this case, we recommend that you keep it pressed for at least one minute.

This will basically reset the device’s battery cycle, which can often be the possible cause of this problem of the smartphone not wanting to connect.

2. Remove the battery

The above tip works for any type of Android device, but if you have a device with a removable battery, there is another method you can use.

In these cases, simply take the battery out of your smartphone and leave it for a minute. Then recharge the battery and try to power on your device. This may be enough to cause the smartphone to recognize the battery again, which sometimes has lost contact even because of dirt on the connection.

3. Charge the device

If you have followed any of the methods mentioned above and nothing has worked, it may be that your device simply needs to be charged. It is worth mentioning that in such cases, it may take up to half an hour for the screen to show that the smartphone is actually being charged, which causes many people to give up in the middle of the process because they think nothing is working.

Therefore, place the device in the charger and wait at least one hour to see if there is any progress. After that time, it is also worth trying the device to see if everything is right.

We also recommend that you use the charger plugged in, not via USB. This allows you to ensure that your battery’s power supply is properly delivered and even helps expedite this procedure, which may be slower if you connect your smartphone to a notebook or other type of portable charger.

4. Reset the device

If the device is already properly loaded, it may be that there is a problem with your software. To solve this, you can force it to be reset in a very easy way, but that works differently for each model of smartphone. Basically, you need to press some buttons together for about 30 seconds or more. You can try one of the combinations that we detail below to see which works with your model:

  • Volume up button + Power button
  • Volume up button + Volume down button + Power button
  • Volume down button + Power button
  • Home Button + Power Button
  • Volume Up Button + Home Button + Power Button

With this done correctly, your smartphone will vibrate and display a screen with an Android being fixed and some options at the top. You can change these options with the volume buttons, but the important thing is to find the “Start” (usually the first option that appears) and push the Power button quickly to select it.

This should make Android turn on and start working normally. If it hangs up again then redo the process, but this time select the “Recovery Mode” and then select the “Reboot system now”, which will force your Android to connect anyway.

5. Take the appliance for service.

If you followed all of our tips above and still could not solve the problem of your Android, the situation could be more serious. Unfortunately, the best you can really do in these cases is to take your smartphone to an authorized service center and see if they can find and solve the problem for you.

It is also worth checking if your device is still under warranty, as you may even receive a new device if your device has actually stopped working and is no longer repaired, especially if the problem did not begin to occur due to misuse, but possible factory defects.

In fact, especially for lay users, this tip is still the most recommended, preventing any procedure from being carried out incorrectly and further aggravating the problem. If you do not feel safe performing the other tips in the article, consider first having the expert technical assistance to help you.
