The amazing Samsung Galaxy S21 is one of the most popular Android devices of the moment. Unfortunately, the terminal may sometimes refuse to turn on. If you’re experiencing similar issues, follow the troubleshooting steps below to fix the problem.
What to Do if Samsung Galaxy S21 Won’t Turn On
Check if the Device Is Damaged
Visually inspect your terminal’s charging port and make sure it’s not damaged. Then, check the Power button and make sure it’s not stuck. Equally important, remove any dirt or specks of dust from the charging port.
Take a closer look at your device and check if the back or the display bulges out. This may indicate the battery is swollen. Use that as a clue and check if any water droplets found their way into your device. For this purpose, carefully inspect the charging port and check if there’s moisture in it.
If you suspect the device is damaged, take it to the nearest Samsung Service Center for assistance.
Use a Samsung Charger and the Original USB Type-C Cable
One reason why your terminal won’t turn on is that it doesn’t have enough battery juice. Use only the original USB Type-C cable that came with your phone. Although the company didn’t include a charging adapter in the box, make sure to get an original Samsung charger. Wait for 10 minutes until the battery has enough juice to power up your device. Then check if you can turn on the device.
Third-party chargers and cables often fail to charge your battery properly. Additionally, a charger or cable that is not of the same voltage as your original charging accessories may severely damage your phone.
Force Restart Your Galaxy S21 Device
To force restart your Samsung Galaxy S21 device, press and hold the Power and Volume down keys for 10 or 30 seconds. Release the buttons as soon as the terminal powers on. If nothing happens after 30 seconds, release the two buttons anyway. Rest assured, a forced restart won’t delete anything from your phone.
To sum up, if your Samsung Galaxy S21 device won’t turn on, there’s not much that you can do about it. Check if the charging port is faulty, and make sure to use the original charging cable. If force restarting the phone doesn’t work, you may need to visit the nearest Samsung Service Center for further assistance. Did you manage to fix the problem? Let us know in the comments below.
