How to fix Samsung Galaxy Note FE that turned off completely and won't turn on

The Samsung Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition) is actually the Galaxy Note 7 but Samsung made sure it won't catch fire anymore but it doesn't mean it's free of problems and errors. With that said, I know a couple of users who have encountered having their Note FE's turned off completely and when they tried turning them on, they won't respond. 
Common knowledge would tell us that it's an issue with the hardware but in most cases, it's not. Remember that smartphones work because everything in it is working. Their hardware are ones we see most of the time and we overlook the fact that without the operating system, these small computers won't work either. With that being said, I believe that when the phone turns off by itself and refuses to respond, it's the system that has an issue and not the hardware. 
So, to fix your Samsung Galaxy Note FE that no longer turns on after it turning off, follow this very simple procedure...
  • Press and hold the Volume Down and the Power keys together for 10 seconds or until the phone turns on.
If your Note FE actually boots up after doing this, then we can positively say the problem is caused by a firmware glitch or a system crash. However, if the phone is still not responding after this, then you may not have done the combination properly. Try pressing and holding the Volume Down button first before pressing the Power key, then keep both keys held down for 10 seconds or more. Your phone should be turning on by now. If not, you should try this...
  1. Plug the charger to a working AC outlet.
  2. Connect the phone to its charger and leave it be for 5 minutes or so.
  3. Press and hold the Volume Down and the Power keys together for 10 seconds or until the phone turns on.
If your Samsung Galaxy Note FE is still not turning on after this, then it's time to visit a Samsung service center to have the device checked.

How to fix Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that no longer charges

Many Samsung Galaxy Note 8 owners took to online forums to complain about their phones that reportedly stopped charging for some reason. Others, of course, contacted Samsung about it and while the company didn't provide further information about the problem, it somehow acknowledged that there were indeed reports about said problems.
Samsung takes all reports of this kind, of course, seriously. We have received only a very small number of customer inquiries that can be linked to charge management. Unfortunately, we can only comment on the matter further, if we have more detailed information about the affected devices.
But isolated or not, those who are affected by the problem may not be able to use their devices anymore. But charging problems may actually not that complicated and I know some owners who have actually made their devices charge and turn on again. That's what I'm going to share with you today--the fix.

What to do if your Galaxy Note 8 won't charge

This solution is based on the fact that when the phone runs out of battery, it may not shut the operating system as well as some of its hardware properly. As a result, the phone crashes which leaves the phone unresponsive. To address this problem, try this...

  • Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 7 seconds or until the phone turns on. 

If the device actually boots up, it should charge so you may connect it to its charger even during the boot sequence.  But what if the battery was totally drained? Well, try this...

  1. Plug the charger to a working AC outlet.
  2. Connect the phone to the charger using the original data cable.
  3. Leave the phone connected to its charger for a couple of minutes and then do the following.
  4. Press and hold the Volume Down button and don't let go.
  5. Press and hold the Power key.
  6. Keep both buttons pressed for 10 seconds or more.

If your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is still not responding after this, then try using a third-party charger and cable if possible. You may also try connecting it to your computer to know if it responds to that. If all of these procedures fail, then it's time to bring it to the service center so that the technician can check it out for you. 

How to fix your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that turned off and does not turn on nor respond

There are so many Samsung Galaxy Note 8 owners who reported that their phones went completely dead or turned off by themselves and would no longer turn on. I know a couple of users who immediately went to the service center (not a Samsung service center) and paid the technician an expensive service fee to have their devices brought back to life. Well, according to them, the servicing only took a few minutes.

Well, I don’t want you to experience that or pay a tech too much money when in fact you can fix this problem on your own without any help from others. That’s what I want to share with you in this article and believe me, it would only take a couple of minutes before you can make the phone to respond and boot up.

How to make Galaxy Note 8 respond

You won’t believe the following solution is effective enough to fix your Galaxy Note 8 that’s completely dead…

Press and hold both the Power and the Volume Down keys for 7 seconds.

Doing this will simulate the popular battery disconnect procedure and force your phone to boot up. This is all you need to do to fix this problem and continue using your Note 8. If, however, this doesn’t work, then you may be doing the procedure incorrectly. Try this…

Press and hold the Volume Down button first before pressing and holding the Power key. Then continue holding both keys for 7 seconds or more. It’s the same as the first procedure only that we’re making sure the combination is done correctly. If this doesn’t work either, then perhaps this would help:
  1. Charge your Galaxy Note 8 for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Make sure you use the original charger and cable.
  3. Press and hold the Volume Down and the Power keys again for 10 seconds or until the phone turns on.
If your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is still completely dead and won’t turn on nor respond after doing all this, then it’s the perfect time to bring it to the technician.

Why? Because it’s probably an issue with the hardware. There’s even a possibility that your phone has either physical or liquid damage and for these issues, there’s nothing much you can do but have the phone checked by a technician.

When describing the problem to the tech, make sure you tell him the events leading to the problem. If the phone got dropped or got wet, that might help determine what the problem is so let the tech know about that, too.
