J5 Prime Phone will not turn on

So I've had a Samsung J5 Prime for just over 5 months now, and this is the first time it's ever acted up. I didn't charge it over the night, (I forgot) but charged it when i woke up and it was around 60% before I went to school. After about 4 hours of working fine, I went to check the time and my phone wouldn't turn on at all. Held down the power button etc and naturally assumed it had run out of battery. I remember it had about 40% charge left which I thought was a little strange, but I came home and plugged it in.

I've left it charging for about an hour and a half now, but nothing has happened, no red light, no response.

Yes, I checked if the charger was turned on.

I've tried holding down the power button while it's charging

I've tried switching power plugs and chargers

No idea what to do......

Also, the back cover doesn't come off so i cant take out the battery etc.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Liz,

You're probably solved this by now - but I just had the same issue. Nothing else I tried worked before this:

I pressed Volume Down + Home Button + Power Button for a few seconds.

After a few seconds I got a turquise screen warning me about a custom OS install.

I cancelled that with a Volume Down press and then my phone booted normally.

Got the idea from here.

Hope that helps Liz (and you future Internet person),

Z:D

Thanks so much for helping out!

You're right - I did end up solving it on my own but thank you anyways

Holding down the home and power button at the same time works as well, (it's called a soft reboot, same as taking battery out on another samsung) that's how mine turned on.

Pressing the volume down + home button + power button worked like a charm. But now my question is, why did my phone act this way? Seems to be an issue quite regular for J5 prime phones.
