We receive emails from many people and everyone gets worried about their phone not turning on. This technique can help you as it has worked for many others.
Once you take off the back cover, you would need to take out the battery and keep it aside. Now press and hold the power button for about one minute. This drains out all the electricity and once you put the battery back into the Samsung Phone, your phone starts working.
Now put the battery back to where it belongs and put it on charge. You do not have to worry about losing your data because this step will not disturb any of the content on your Samsung Galaxy (On Nxt, On7, Max, On5, On8).

Is it your Charger?
At times, we are blaming the Samsung but it is the charger which stops working. Consider checking another phone with the same charger. If it is the charger, you must consider replacing the charger. It is advisable to use the charger of the same company. Use an original Samsung charger for your Samsung Galaxy (Grand OR Core).
Fixing the Boot Loop on Samsung
Your phone turns on but does not go beyond the logo screen. It gets stuck on the logo screen forever which we like to call boot loop. Wipe the cache partition or just put the Samsung phone (Note 8, S9 Plus, Pro, s5, j3, S7 Edge, C7, A9, A, A3) on factory reset. Factory reset may wipe off the data on your phone, it is best to take out the memory card From the slot. You may be wondering as to how the factory reset option works!
You would need to do the following to perform the factory reset:
Hold the volume down, up and power button altogether. You will find the Samsung logo but do not leave the buttons yet! Finally, you get to see the master reset menu. Now press the volume down button and select the delete data when you get the master reset menu.
Do note that the factory reset option does not work when the software is damaged. Do note that factory reset erases all the data on your Samsung Galaxy (Duos, Prime, Max, s6, j1, j). This is to inform you that you cannot get the best of both worlds here. Factory reset works for many people to turn their phone on.
Try another outlet
Try another outlet to make sure that the problem is not with the phone. Sometimes, the electric point is not working and we keep wondering why our Samsung phone (S8, j2, s8, C5, S, Galaxy Alpha) is not turning on. Try all the outlets in your home. It is possible that the charging is not working or the outlet is damaged.
Special note: In some cases, the Samsung battery is not removable. What to do in such cases? You need to hold the power button for long till the phone gets turned on. If it still does not work, consider charging your Samsung phone (core, Active, J7 Nxt, Samsung Tab 10) for some time. At times, your phone is just dead because there is no charge at all. Charge it for some time and then use the above-mentioned steps.
