iPhone is dead on charge and won’t turn on

What to do if iPhone does not turn on

Apple devices are very popular around the world and loved by customers because they are quality, modern and reliable gadgets with their own special “soul” and atmosphere. A rare iPhone owner will say that he is dissatisfied with his device, or that it ever really let him down. Along with this, even “Apple” devices, as well as any other electronics, can break.

The reasons are varied, but that’s not the point. So, let’s simulate the situation: one “beautiful” morning you took your favorite iPhone in anticipation of checking the news feed in your favorite social network and found that the device does not turn on. Shock, panic, resentment, frustration. Calm down! In many cases, the problem can be solved “with little effort”, i.E.Е. Without having to go to a service center.

Forced reboot

If your charger works, and your smartphone is charged but won’t turn on, try resetting it. Rebooting can fix almost half of the software glitches, so don’t neglect it.

Press and hold the “Power” and “Home” buttons for 10-15 seconds to forcibly reboot the iPhone. On iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, you have to hold the volume down key instead of “Home”. This is due to the fact that the seventh iPhone has no mechanical “Home” button, only a sensor, which does not work when the device is off.

Problems with the “iPhone” can manifest themselves in different ways, depending on the nature of the malfunction. The following situations are possible:

  • The screen is black or has gone dead, the phone does not respond to button presses and touching the sensor;
  • The iPhone turns on, but it is very hot (the display or adapter is hot) and quickly runs out of power (the battery lasts for several hours, even if the full charge indicator is lit, and the gadget is powered on all night);
  • Smartphone is charged, but you can not turn it on. Long blinking logo, iOS does not start;
  • “iPhone” constantly turns off and does it spontaneously;

If you have been using your iPhone for a long time in the cold and can not turn it on. The situation is normal, since the battery is designed only for a certain temperature. Wait until the battery has warmed up to room temperature before starting the diagnostics.

First make sure the battery is charged and it is not the cause. Connect your iPhone to the original charger and press “Power. The device turns on quickly in normal conditions, but if the iPhone has not worked for a long time, it is likely that the battery is in deep discharge mode and you will need to wait about half an hour. Check whether the charger heats up, whether there is no dirt in the connector. It is possible that the iPhone will not start up, because there is not enough power (this happens if you use cheap chargers and connect the battery to the USB port of a computer).

If you see a black screen, and the phone periodically buzzes and beeps, but does not turn on, try resetting it. To do this:

  • Press the “Sleep/Wake” and “Home” buttons simultaneously (if you have an “iPhone” 7 or 7S, use a combination of “Power” and “Volume”).
  • Hold them for about 10-15 seconds until the “Apple” logo loads.

Hard reset will not erase iPhone data (contacts, pictures, videos, etc.).). If the smartphone still does not turn on, you will have to act more radically: to restore the factory firmware.

To do this connect the original USB-cable to your computer and open iTunes, then press the “Power” and “Volume” (for 7th generation models) or “Power” and “Home” buttons (for “iPhone” 6 and earlier models); release them only when the screen goes out.

Then press Home and, with the USB cable connected to your smartphone, hold the button until the iTunes logo turns on and the plug icon appears. Confirm iOS update (if you want to save data) or iPhone restore (if information is already saved to other media or the cloud).

The process of installing new software takes about forty minutes. At that time, it will seem as if your iPhone is turned off. The screen will turn off, the phone will not vibrate, buzz, or become very warm. The Internet connection must work well for the duration of the procedure, otherwise the software will not boot.

If there is nothing wrong with iOS, firmware and applications on your iPhone, it is better to contact the professionals to find the problem.

Of course, if you have the necessary tools, you can disassemble the “iPhone” yourself and, for example, connect a new battery. But without experience and expertise, you can accidentally damage other parts and, of course, violate the warranty conditions.

Tips for care

Do not clean the connectors or the speaker with a needle, toothpick or wire. This will lead to the violation of the integrity of parts and the need to replace them with new ones.

Checking the charger

Your iPhone shows it’s charging but won’t turn on? The problem may be caused by too low charging current. As a result, the discharged battery cannot gain enough charge to start the smartphone. We have no opportunity to get into the guts of your smartphone with a multimeter to check the charging current. But what prevents you from using a known working charger?

To check the charger perform the following steps:

  • Find a known working charger that successfully charges other smartphones;
  • Connect the current iPhone to the charger;
  • Leave it on overnight.

Since the iPhone does not turn on, the battery has most likely gone into deep discharge. Therefore, you need to run the charging process overnight to allow the battery to recover. In the morning we wake up and try to start the smartphone. If all went well and the device started, take your wallet and go to the store for a new charger. It also does not hurt to check how the restored battery behaves during the day.

Please note that if you notice after such a charge the battery becomes quickly discharged, contact a service center for a replacement battery.

Charging problems are often caused by the use of non-original third-party chargers. If you want to avoid such problems, use only original accessories produced under the Apple brand name. The same applies to fashionable “magnetic” cables with magnetic connectors. They may cause too little charging current (due to corrosion of contacts or small diameter of cable strands.

Software defects

Apple devices are no less prone to system failures than other phones. Causes can be different:

  • RAM overload caused by running a large number of programs in the background.
  • Improperly performed jailbreak.
  • Incorrect device firmware etc.Д.

If a hard reset does not solve the problem it makes sense to perform the iPhone recovery, backing up your data beforehand. You will need a computer with iTunes to solve the problem.

Important: during repairing the phone will be deleted all information, so before you flash it make sure you made a backup of your data.

  • Connect your iPhone to your computer with iTunes open.
  • Set the device to DFU mode. Hold Power and Home for 10 seconds, then release the Power button and hold Home for another 10 seconds until iTunes displays a message that your smartphone is detected in recovery mode.

If restoring in DFU mode does not solve the problem, it is very likely that the cause of the problem is a hardware malfunction.

Checking the battery

The most common, simple and quite obvious reason for a phone not turning on can be a dead battery. If the iPhone 6 screen is out and does not turn on. What to do?? Of course it is desirable to charge it. It makes sense to wait for about fifteen minutes from the moment of charging before you try to turn your gadget back on. This is necessary in order to have enough energy for the system activation.

If you use a non-branded charger (for example, at work), because of the weak contact, the battery may receive an incomplete charge, resulting in it running out much faster.

Replace the battery device can, of course, and by your own hand. There are many instructions on the Internet on this subject. However, if you do not have confidence in your own abilities, it is better to take both the charger and the gadget to the service center. As a result, you will not lose the warranty from the manufacturer.

There is a chance that your iPhone 6 will not turn on after it has been discharged because the cables and charging ports are broken or dirty. Try to clean all the input and output ports, as well as change the charger, preferably a branded one. Often the port gets loose while recharging the phone in the car. No matter how reliable it is (at first glance), you must understand that the constant jolts and vibrations during the journey have a negative impact on the quality of the connection.

Another common case is when the device has been left out in the cold for a long time. Suddenly powers down on its own. This happens because the substance on which the battery is based does not tolerate frost.

Once you are at home, if possible try to remove the battery from the smartphone. And put it and the device in a warm, dry place. Once the iPhone along with the battery has warmed up, reassemble the device and plug it in to the charger. Leave it like that for a couple of hours.
