When a mid-range smartphone like the Galaxy A51 won’t turn on, you can already expect it to be a problem with the firmware, provided that the issue has not been caused by hardware damage.
Most of the time, such a problem is just due to a firmware crash wherein Android or the ROM in your phone just stopped responding for some reason. Annoying as it may seem, this problem is not really that serious. So you may be able to fix it on your own.
In this post, I will guide you in troubleshooting your A51 that would no longer turn on or power up for some reason. I’m gonna give you the most practical and effective solution to this problem, so continue reading as this article may be able to help you.
Fixing An A51 That Won’t Turn On
Time Needed : 4 minutes
As the owner of the device, you should know if your phone has incurred physical or liquid damage. If it did, then that might be the reason why it won’t turn on anymore. However, if the problem occurred without any obvious cause, then it can be just a minor firmware problem. Here’s what you need to do:
Force reboot your device
A forced restart is basically a simulated battery removal, which has been proven to be effective in fixing smartphones that won’t turn on. It refreshes your phone’s memory as well as reloads all services and apps.
Assuming that your phone does not have any signs of physical or liquid damage, this can be the only thing you need to do to fix your phone and make it respond again. Here’s how it’s done on your Galaxy A51:
1. Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 10 seconds. Your phone will power down and turn back on.
2. If the A51 logo shows on the screen, release of the keys and wait until your device finishes the reboot.
If the phone doesn’t respond to this, then try doing the same procedure a few more times and try the next solution if it still won’t respond after that.
Charge and do the Forced restart
Another possibility that we have to rule out is the chance that the battery is drained and resulted in a crash. If you’ve tried charging your phone already and it didn’t respond, then that’s a sign that a simple battery drained resulted in a crash. But don’t worry, there’s always something you can do about it. Here’s how:
1. Plug the charger to a working wall outlet.
2. Using the original cable, connect the phone to its charger.
3. Regardless of whether the phone shows the charging symbol or not, leave it connected to the charger for at least 10 minutes.
4. After which and while the phone is still connected to the charger, press and hold the Volume Down button and don’t release it yet.
5. While holding down the volume button, press and hold the Power key as well.
6. Keep both keys held down together for 15 seconds or until the Galaxy A51 logo shows on the screen.

- Galaxy A51
If you were able to make your Galaxy A51 respond by doing this procedure, then the problem could have been pretty minor. Should the problem occur again in the future, consider resetting your device as there can be a problem with the firmware.
However, if your Galaxy A51 won’t turn on even after doing these procedures, then you should have it checked because there can be an issue with the firmware.
