    Step 1: Connect your phone to a charger

    Whenever a problem of this kind arises, the first thing you should do is to plug your smartphone into a power source. There's a good chance that your phone is out of battery and as a result, it won't turn on.

    Step 2: Switch off your phone

    Once you've left your phone to charge for a while, try turning it off. You can do this by holding the power button until the "Power Off" option shows up and tapping on it. If your phone doesn't turn off despite doing this, head to the next step.
