How To Fix Google Pixel 3 Does Not Start After Battery Drained

Problem: My Google pixel 3 does not start at all it turns on to the battery symbol but not the battery charging up symbol. It was caused from the battery draining to zero and it didn’t start up or after I left it on the original charger overnight (8hrs). I have tried the volume up and power button restart and that does not work. This has happened before and it fixed itself from being plugged in with the original cable at a Verizon store and started doing the charge up battery symbol when plugged in. But there seems to be no logical way and no similar stories online so i am contacting you.

Solution: The first thing that you will want to do in this case is to make sure that the battery of the phone has sufficient charge. Follow the troubleshooting steps listed below to charge the device.

  • Clean the charging port of the phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure to remove any dirt or debris stuck in this port.
  • Try using a different charging cord and wall charger to charge the phone.
  • Try charging the phone from a computer USB port.
  • Try using a wireless charger to charge the phone.

Once the battery has sufficient charge it’s time to turn on the device.

Perform a soft reset

The first thing that you need to do in this case is a soft reset. This is usually done when the phone becomes unresponsive but can also be performed for this issue as this step will refresh the phone software .To do this just press and hold the Power button for about 10 to 20 seconds or until it power cycles. Check if the issue still occurs.

Start the phone in Safe Mode

In case the issue still persists then the next step is to check if the phone can be started in Safe Mode.

  • With the device powered on, press and hold the Power button  until the Power off prompt appears then release.
  • Touch and hold Power off until the “Reboot to safe mode” prompt appears then release.
  • Tap OK to confirm.

Does the problem occur in this mode? If it doesn’t then it could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

Perform a factory reset

One last troubleshooting step that you should do is a factory reset. This will revert the phone back to its original factory condition. Take note that when you perform this step your phone data will be deleted.

  • Hold the Power Button Until the Phone Is Off
  • Hold the Power Button and the Volume Down Button for a Few Seconds
  • Wait to See Fastboot Mode on the Screen
  • Let Go of the Buttons
  • Select Recovery Mode
  • Wait for the Android Robot Image to Pop Up
  • Hold Down the Power Button and Then Press the Volume Up Button
  • Select Wipe Data/Factory Reset
  • Select Yes
  • Select Reboot System Now

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then you will have to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
