Black Screen Issue on Galaxy A71

In fixing the black screen issue, everything revolves around how to make your phone power on again. As long as you can make the device display something on the screen, that’s already a good sign that your phone’s hardware is working properly. So here are the things you should: 

First solution: Do the Forced Restart

The Forced restart is your go-to procedure when it comes to fixing a phone that’s stuck on a black screen of death. In fact, your troubleshooting should revolve around this procedure because there’s not much you can do about a phone that won’t turn on or respond, except make it show anything on the screen to know that it’s still capable of powering up. 

1. So to do the Forced restart, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 8 seconds. This will often force your device to boot up.

Most of the time, if you can make the logo show on the screen, it’s enough of a sign that shows the problem is fixed. However, if this doesn’t fix the problem, then move on to the next solution.

Second solution: Charge your phone and do the Forced restart

The next thing you have to do if the first solution fails is to charge the phone. It’s possible that you just have a drained battery and that the firmware may have stopped responding before the phone ran out of juice. Most of the time, the phone won’t respond to its charger or won’t show the charging sign when connected. But don’t worry, you can still fix it, here’s how: 

1. Plug the charger to a working outlet.
