Good; we have considered several reasons why the “android device does not turn on” error may occur, and now it’s time to see how to actually solve this annoying problem, which can also be related to a looped download, a screen freeze or a full shutdown.
How to fix the error “The Android device does not turn on”
Try charging the device first
However strange it may seem, this error can be solved if you charge the device correctly. Some smartphones or tablets suffer from a small problem related to battery life – after the battery reaches a charge of 20%, the device shuts down and you can not turn it on until you charge it for some time. In principle, even after connecting the charger, you can not turn on the device. Therefore, you need to be patient and wait a few minutes before trying to turn on the phone. For the future, observe if the same situations occur when the battery reaches 20% of the charge and the phone turns off.As a solution, simply connect the charger more often and, especially if you notice that on the notification panel next to the battery icon the 20% light comes on.
Restart the device or remove the battery
If the charging of the android device does not solve the tripping problem or the “android device does not turn on” error, try removing the battery. Thus, you can somehow restore the phone in case it gets into a looped state during various processes (for example, those mentioned in the beginning of the article). In principle, you only need to remove the battery for a few minutes, then insert it again and try to boot the device again.
If the device has a built-in battery, do not panic. You can still force the smartphone / tablet to reboot. All you need to do is press and hold the power button for about 20 or 30 seconds. After that, the device must reboot.
The display does not turn on, although the phone is actually on
This situation is quite common. In fact, the android-device is turned on and works fine, but the display does not show anything. You can check this by pressing the power button (for a long time); if you hear a sound or vibration, it means that the device is operating normally. Unfortunately, in this situation, we can not help you. What you can do is contact the phone repair service.
Make a hard reset of the device and clear the application data cache
If the android device is stuck in the download cycle, or if the smartphone or tablet just does not turn on, you can try resetting it to its factory settings and clearing the application data cache. By performing this operation, you can remove malicious applications or non-responding processes, or you can simply restore the android device to its original state, which means that the problem of “android device does not turn on” will be easily solved. Anyway, here’s what you need to do:
- Enter the recovery mode on the android device – the method is different for different device manufacturers; just follow this guide and find out how to do it on your device.
- After you have entered recovery mode, use the volume key to switch between menu items. Select “wipe data factory reset”, “wipe cache partition” and “wipe dalvik cache”.
- When you’re done, go back to the main menu.
- Select “reboot system now”.
Log in to safe mode
After a hard reset is performed, you can still experience some minor problems, which may mean that not everything has been fixed during the reset to factory settings. Therefore, you must go into Android Safe mode, where you can diagnose errors, and where you can remove any non-compliant program and malicious application. Here’s how you can enter safe mode:
- Press and hold the power key for a few seconds.
- Then press the volume down key until you reach Android Safe Mode.
- When the notification appears, click OK.
- All. You are in safe mode.
