Moreover, there are many reasons why your phone might not power on but try to follow up these steps before you decides to take it to an engineer in your area.
Here are my few tips on what you have to do if your phone refuses to Power On.
1. Charge Your Phone – In case your battery is dead, your phone would display empty percent when you try to turn it on. However, if is completely dead, your phone will not respond at all when you press the power button. A quick charge should resolve this issue or problem.
2. Remove Your Battery – Your smartphone can hard freeze and refuse to respond to any button pressed. If is completely frozen, your phone may be powered and running but fails to start as the OS is frozen and at the same time, fails to respond when the power button is pressed.
