Hello. Today I would like to analyze all the most common reasons why a smartphone on Android may not turn on. I will not touch on those situations when disassembling the phone and interfering with the electronic stuffing is required, since this is the work of completely different specialists.
If your smartphone or tablet suddenly stops turning on, it is not necessary to immediately run to a service center or workshop and have it repaired. Most likely, there is a chance that you can do it yourself and save some amount (programs for maintaining home accounting on Android will also help you, look for them on the blog). Below we will consider the main measures that can be taken if the smartphone or tablet on Android does not turn on. And so, let’s get started.
The Android phone does not turn on. 5 ways to solve a problem.
Method number 1
From my own experience I will say that in 80% of all cases, if they come to me with a problem that the phone does not turn on, the whole thing turns out to be a discharged battery. And I understand perfectly when they tell me that they charged the smartphone all day, but it still does not turn on. Some devices have one unpleasant feature. if the battery is very depleted, it will not charge, even if you keep it on charge all day.
In this case, a frog type charger will help us, which allows you to charge almost any battery directly by removing it from the phone. It is enough to recharge the battery in this way for 15 minutes. Then insert it back and put the phone on charge as usual, everything should be OK.
If getting a frog is problematic for you, then you can use any old charging from your mobile phone. We cut off the old plug and protect the wires.
Make sure that charging is not plugged in at this time.
We fix the exposed wires on the battery with adhesive tape for several minutes.

Important. Do not reverse polarity.
Method number 2
Faulty charging. Of course, the second thing to check is the serviceability of the charger. Everything is simple here. we take a known working charge and try to charge our smartphone. If the process has begun, then we buy a new one and rejoice. Although it sounds banal, but it helps every fifth.
Method number 3
If the phone does not turn on, then perhaps it just crashed. To revive your device, we apply a long-known, but still relevant way. take out the battery and reinsert it.
Unfortunately, this technique does not work on many modern phones with a non-removable battery. In this case, to reboot, you need to find the reset button and press it with a paper clip, for example. It can be anywhere, but, as a rule, it is near the slot for a SIM card or on the back of a smartphone or tablet. Near the reset button, sometimes there is an inscription reset or off. The photo below shows an example of the location of such a button in the Sony Xperia M5 smartphone.
Method number 4
This method is applicable if your phone doesn’t turn on, but doesn’t turn on completely. For example, it hangs on your Android logo and nothing else happens. This happens due to a malfunction in the smartphone software. Then hard reset or, in translation, hard reset will help us. For each device model, it is done differently. In order to find out how, enter the name of your phone and the words hard reset, for example LG G3 hard reset, in Google or Yandex and follow the instructions. In the future I hope to create a separate section on this topic on the blog.
Unfortunately, not all smartphones support hard reset, it depends on the recovery installed in the device. If you are interested to know in more detail what it is, look on the Internet.
For example, there is no such function by default, in many sony phones, but the manufacturer has provided the ability to restore the software using the special utility Sony pc companion.
Method number 5
Not often, but even so it happens that smartphone does not turn on due to the fact that the battery contacts do not reach. To fix this, you need to twist the contacts with tweezers or a small screwdriver to improve connection with the battery. The main thing here is without fanaticism, otherwise you will only make it worse.
If none of the methods helped and your phone still doesn’t turn on, then the problem most likely lies in the hardware itself and only the service center can help you.
I would be grateful if you share in the comments your ways how you can revive the smartphone.
