Phone Will Not Turn On ¶
No matter what you do, you can't get your phone to turn on.
Battery Has No Charge ¶
The battery could have no charge. To test the battery, connect your phone to the charger. If the phone does not charge, the battery will need to be replaced. Please see the Battery Replacement Guide.
Defective Battery ¶
Your phone may have a broken display if you can hear sounds or feel vibrations but see no display. If the display is broken, it will need to be replaced.
No Sound From the Speakers ¶
Your phone is on, you're trying to watch a sweet video, but you can't hear any sounds.
Settings Issue ¶
The phone could be on the mute setting. Use the volume buttons located on the top right side of the phone to check the volume, or manually check the volume setting in the phone’s settings application.
Broken or Defective Speakers ¶
The speakers on the phone could be broken and will need to be replaced.
Touchscreen is Frozen ¶
Even after pushing every button over and over, your phone isn't responding.
Reset Phone ¶
Reset your phone by holding the power button located on the top right side of the phone until the phone turns off and restarts.
Charge Phone ¶
An extremely low battery may cause the touchscreen to freeze. Check the battery and connect the phone to the charger for 20 minutes.
Application Does Not Respond or Gives Error Messages ¶
You keep trying to play Candy Crush but it's just not working.
Incompatible Application ¶
That particular application may not be compatible with the phone’s operating system. Check the application store on your phone to find a compatible version of the application.
Corrupt File ¶
The file for the application may be corrupt. Delete the application from the phone and check the application store on your phone to find a different version of the application.
Battery charges slowly ¶
You've got places to be, but your phone is taking forever to charge. What gives?
Port and Connector ¶
Check the battery port on the phone and the charger connector for dirt and/or damage.
Power Source ¶
Try using a wall-charger, as wall-chargers provide a more powerful charge than a computer/USB charger.
Charging Source ¶
Try connecting to different chargers or outlets to see if the charger is defective.
Defective Battery ¶
If you have tried all of the above, the battery could be defective and will need to be replaced. Refer to our Battery Replacement Guide.
