Note 5 Fully Charged But Not Turning On

Problem: My Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was working fine this morning at 6:30 then I went to school so I had to power it off. When I got home, it would not turn on. I have already tried to hold the power key, home key, and volume down key. However, it does not vibrate or turn on. When i plug it in the battery symbol comes on and says it is fully charged, so it isn’t a display problem. What should I do to fix this problem? Thanks!

Solution: Try simultaneously pressing the power and volume down buttons for at least 10 seconds, Your phone should restart after this, If it doesn’t then proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Clean the charging port of the phone using a can of compressed air.
  • Connect the phone to its wall charger then let it charge for at least 20 minutes.
