The phone keeps us connected to the world, so when it stops working (or worse, it does not turn on), there are many things we can’t do.
If you’re experiencing problems with your Android phone or tablet, don’t panic! You should be able to fix most issues by following this simple guide. If you don’t have the tools to perform these steps, check out our list of must-have smartphone accessories.
What to do when your Android Smartphone doesn’t turn on?
- Check the battery.
- Check the charging port.
- Check the charging cable.
- Check your phone’s software.
- Ensure that the screen, buttons and audio jack are working properly by testing them with another device (if available).
- If there is some damage to any of these parts of your device, you will need to replace it with a new one from an authorized service center or a third-party vendor.
- However, if none of these parts are damaged, we can further fix other phone problems!
Guide to fixing your android that won’t turn on
Power off your Android device manually.
Press the Power button for about 10 seconds to power off your device. When you see the screen go dark, let go of the Power button. Please wait a few seconds, then press and hold it again until you see a screen with three buttons turned on: Power off, Restart, and Cancel. Then release when you see an image of an android robot lying down on its back appear onscreen.
Remove the phone battery and the SIM card.
Remove the battery and SIM card from your phone. Check if your battery is damaged and replace it with a new one. If you don’t have any spare batteries, wait for your phone to charge to 100%, then insert it back into its place and see if that works.
You can also use a wireless charger to charge your cell phone battery if you want to know whether it’s a problem with the hardware or software of your device. Make sure to use a genuine charger and not a fake one.
Boot android in safe mode
If you’re trying to fix an android phone that won’t turn on, booting the device into safe mode can help determine if an app is causing the problem. Safe mode is a setting that disables all third-party apps on your device, so only Android’s core services and features will work. This means that if one of these apps is causing your android phone not to turn on, removing them from memory will allow it to start up normally again.
To boot your Android in safe mode:
- Press and hold the power button for several seconds until you see a “power down” option at the top of your screen. Then release it when prompted. If using a Samsung Galaxy S7 or earlier model with a home button, press and hold down both hardware buttons until this option appears.
- It’ll take about 10 seconds longer than pressing just one button before showing up as an option here!
- Tap OK when prompted by the Safe Mode prompt message after this is done successfully while turning back into normal mode or restarting again.
- Now should fix any issues caused by those bad apps we mentioned earlier because they won’t be loaded while running through this process anymore!
Use a computer to fix the issue.
If you have access to a computer, you can use it to fix the issue. You need to connect your phone and use a USB cable. Then open up the phone in your file manager, delete the cache and, if possible, reset it.
Fix cables charger and adaptor issue
- Try using a different charger. If the phone is not charging with one cable and adapter, try using another cable and adapter.
- Try using a different power outlet. The outlet might be faulty or may not be able to provide enough voltage to charge your device properly.
- Clean the charging port on your phone with a dry cloth. Please make sure that no debris in it could prevent proper contact between the charger and phone.
Reset the device
- Reset the device by pressing down on its power button for 15 seconds, then releasing it when prompted; this will turn off any programs running in the background which could be causing issues with charging your phone
- Don’t let go of the buttons until you see an Android logo appear onscreen. You should now be in Recovery mode.
- Use your volume keys to highlight the Wipe cache partition, then press the power key to confirm. You will now see that your device is wiping its cache clean. Once this process has finished, navigate using the volume keys again to highlight Reboot System Now, then press the power key to confirm.
- Your phone should now reboot normally. Note that all app settings will be lost, but this isn’t too much of an issue as these can usually rebuild their cache files once they are launched post-reboot.
At the end:
So there you have it! Many things can cause your Android phone to fail, but hopefully, by following the steps above, you can fix the issue.
