One mess I don’t want to find myself with my smartphone is the power problem and calibration. The worst is when the power button isn’t working fine or you press the power-on button but nothing comes up.
This problem isn’t particular about any device. Whether you are using a Samsung Galaxy phone or iPhone XL, your phone might still won’t turn on no matter how hard you tried.
If your small phone won’t turn on you may choose to buy another one instantly. But, what will happen if your iPhone X won’t turn on?
It’s probably a dream you never pray to come to pass. However, if your iPhone X won’t turn on all or charge or the black screen isn’t coming up after you have fully charged the phone here is probably what you need to do.
This is probably the trial and error approach you have to try first if your iPhone power is not working or you try to turn on your iPhone but it’s not turning on at all when the battery is even fully charged.
There approach you will learn here doesn’t guarantee that your iPhone X power will start working. If it doesn’t at the end, we’ll advise you to return it back to the company where you bought it if the warranty is still valid.
If your iPhone X unable to power on is a software issue there is probably nothing you can do it. It’s either your upgrade the software or you fix it.
It might not be a battery problem. The battery may be fixed correctly and still not turn on. So, whenever you have difficulty to turn on your iPhone X, the battery may not be the main problem.
You need to think beyond whether your iPhone battery charges or the battery connector is not good enough to power on your iPhone.
However, if you later discovered that the problem is a software issue, your iPhone might be crashing apart from not turn on when you press the power button.
