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.
