Blu Studio 5.5 will not turn on

The phone was working fine before I left the US to travel to Philippines so i boxed it back up and brought it here as a gift. When we tried to turn it on here it will not even turn on. We had the battery checked and it is good with charge and everything. Any ideas what could be wrong with it?

Thanks

Mark

I had this happen once with a blu 5.3. And it was because i had it charging on a laptop then because i didn't disconnect it properly the phone turned off and would turn on. I fixed it by letting restarting the computer and letting it sit there eventually about 10 mins later it powered on and i disconnected it properly. The thing i would try is hooking it up to a different charger altogether. See if any lights come on or anything. After about 5mins push and hold the power button. Again wait for lights sound etc. If nothing try a reset. You hold down power+volume up+home OR power+volume up+volume down. Let me know if anything happens.

I bought the Blue phone from Microsoft Canada store and stopped working after a month. Now the Blue company in Florida wants me to pay for shipping both ways to fix it which is still under 1 year warranty which Microsoft does not honor. Microsoft wouldn't even allow me to post a negative review of the blue product on their site for review of this phone. No wonder people think this crappy phone is good as there are no negative reviews on the Microsoft store. This is by far my worst purchase experience in a new phone ever. Lesson learned never purchase a cheap phone from an unknown brand who don't care about customers.

Can you be a little more descriptive? What was it doing before it went down? Did it display any other odd behaviours? Did you drop it in water? What year was the blu made in? Be as informative as possible.

I got the phone last month (New) from Overstock.com. I unpacked it put in the battery and sim card. Everything worked perfectly. I took the battery back out and packed it like new again and traveled from USA to Philippines. Once I arrived in the Philippines we unpacked it as before putting battery and sim in it and it would not even turn on. It's just not working at all. We took it to a couple repair shops here in the Philippines they both said the battery was in working order and charged so it must be something within the phone itself. It has not been even close to any water the only thing I can think is airport scanners may have damaged something???

You have to start your phone in recovery mode, and then factory data reset the phone and you will be good to go,just remember that you will loose everything on the phone like photos and media files.to enter recovery on blu phones you have to press volume up and power button at the same time

I tried it. This is what I did. I pressed the UP and DOWN volume button together. Then I Pressed the volume down button for factory mode and then you can reset by scrolling down to the last option and press on the home button on the front of your to accept the option. The phone should come back home. Mine is on now but there is still a problem with the off and on button. Well at least I can now get my contacts out of the phone. Im going to try to transfer my data to my cheap reliable old fashioned samsung slider phone.

when i try that it comes off at the point where i press volume down to select factory mode. its fully charged too.

I have Blu Studio 5.5 that wont turn on. My fix is this: Hold the power button down for several minutes. It will eventually turn on. Then search Playstore for an on/off app. It works by detecting light in the camera. Put it in your pocket or upside down on a table phone goes dark. Take it out it goes on. Works for me.

The phone needs to be flashed. However, the problem will continue. I have been having the same problem with my Blu Studio 5.5c D690U. I flashed the phone but exactly one week later, it stops working again. Stuck in start loop. What I was told by a Blu Store worker, is that there are a few Studios with Manufacturers' default. So, there is nothing you can do really, except buy a new phone or change the system software or board.

Good luck!

Take out the battery, then take out the Micro-Card. Then put back in and restart. Hopefully that will work. Once I did have to do a reset to Factory, and reinstall everything. I have had the phone for 8 months, I think. And this happened 2x. It doesn't really like, fast and confused access to apps. Also, it really doesn't do well traveling with the WI-FI on. The combination of searching for a Wi-fi to connect with, and the phone trying to keep signal, doesn't work. So make sure if you are traveling turn off the wi-fi, because it will lock up like you are experiencing.
