Kyocera Event won’t turn on ¶ 

Phone fails to power on

Turn Phone On ¶ 

Press and hold down the power button (on the right side, top of the phone) to turn on the power.

Dead Battery ¶ 

There is a chance that your battery needs to be recharged.

1. Try plugging in the phone to your charger and give it a few minutes to charge before holding down the power button.

2. If the phone fails to turn on, it is likely that that battery no longer works and needs to be replaced. To replace the battery you need to find a compatible Kyocera battery.

3. After you purchase a new battery, remove the phones backing, and remove the old battery. To remove the old battery you will lift up on the white tab labeled “pull” that is placed on the bottom of the battery.

4. Place the new battery in the phone, and hold the power button to turn the phone on. If this step also fails it is possible that the charger may be faulty and needs to be replaced as well.
