The first thing that comes to mind when your iPhone won’t turn on or your battery won’t charge is that it’s broken. To find out for sure, here are a couple of troubleshooting tips to try before contacting an iPhone repair guy.
Your iPhone Won’t Turn On
- Press to see if the Wake/Sleep button is working properly. If not, check to see if it has been damaged in any way. If you noticed it has been damaged, contact an iPhone repair service.
- Connect your phone to your USB power adapter and allow it to charge for at least 10 minutes. If the device’s home screen appears, then you are good to go. Keep charging it up until it is fully charged. However, if you unplug your phone from the power cord and it turns off instantly, it needs to be serviced.
Your Battery Is Not Charging
Your phone has been charging overnight while you were asleep (or so you thought). Unfortunately, you discover that it hasn’t charged at all. Here are a couple of things to do:
- First check to see if the outlet you are using actually works. Simply plug in an electrical item, such as a lamp or another item. If that doesn’t work, switch outlets.
- If you have another USB power adapter, test it out on your phone. You can also try connecting it into a USB 2.0 port on a computer. Just make sure your computer is not in sleep mode.
If this doesn’t work, it’s time to get it serviced by a professional iPhone repair specialist. The battery could be dead or there could be another technical problem.
There’s no question that having problems with your iPhone can be frustrating. Before contacting an iPhone repair company, make sure you check to see if your phone is covered under warranty.
