What You Should Do When Your iPhone Is Charging But Won't Turn On

Does your iPhone not turn on at all even though you’ve charged it for a while? Don’t worry - it happens to all of us. iPhones can be faulty and have issues powering on although the phones have been charged for some time or are fully charged. To address this issue, you can book an appointment for a free diagnosis at one of our iPhone repair Burnaby, iPhone repair Surrey, or iPhone repair Calgary locations or you can use the tips below.

Force Restart Your iPhone

Your iPhone may simply be temporarily frozen and needs a manual reset or “force restart.”

Clean Dirty Charging Port or Cable

If the iPhone still doesn’t turn on after 30 minutes connected to power, check the charging port and cable and make sure they’re clean. If the charging port is clogged with debris or the charging cable contacts are dirty, this can prevent the battery from charging. Clean the port carefully with a non-destructive pick and a little isopropyl alcohol, let it dry, and try a different charging cable. Alternatively, try charging your iPhone wirelessly.

Replace Faulty Battery or Charging Port

If the iPhone still doesn’t turn on, it may have a dead battery or a bad charging port. Replace the battery with a partially charged one and see if the phone will turn on. If not, there may be a power button or logic board issue. If the phone does turn on, plug it in and see if the charging indicator comes on. If the phone says it is charging, then the Lightning connector works, and you likely had a bad battery. You can replace your iPhone battery at our iPhone battery replacement Burnaby, iPhone battery replacement Surrey, or iPhone battery replacement Calgary shop.

Repair Power Button

If the power button doesn't seem to work, plug the iPhone into a power source and see if it turns on automatically. If the phone turns on and has power, then there might be a problem with either the power button or the power button cable. Test the power button and replace it if necessary.

Repair iPhone Screen

It’s possible that it appears nothing is happening because the display is broken. An easy way to test this is to turn the phone on and listen for a sound. If there’s sound coming from your iPhone speaker, it means that your iPhone is working but your screen isn’t displaying content properly. In this case, you can replace your iPhone screen.

Repair Logic Board

If none of the above solutions does the trick, your logic board may be faulty and needs to be replaced. You can either replace the entire board, or attempt to diagnose and repair it using microsoldering techniques. This is a very technical repair that only a few phone repair shops such as CaseMogul can offer. Learn about our microsoldering services.
