First thing we are going to do is if we can boot into safe mode. If we fail to access into safe mode, we are going to wipe cache partition. And lastly, we are going to perform factory reset. But factory reset deletes all your data, so it’s up to you. However let’s fix the problem. Just one thing you should check before starting. Have you tried to charge your phone one more time? We recommend you to try charging your phone one more time. If still not working even if you try to charge one more time, try the steps below.

1. Soft Reset

Sometimes low battery power could be a cause of the issue (Not turning on). When your Galaxy S7 is not responding with a black screen, soft resetting might help you to resolve the issue. Please follow the steps below, in order to fix the problem:

01. Firstly, we are going to charge the device more than 30 minutes.

02. After 30 minutes of battery charge, Press and Hold the power button for about 20 seconds, until the screen turns on. If the device turns on and the Samsung Logo Appears, you can release the power button.

03. If soft reset didn’t help you? Check if your phone can boot into Safe mode for the next method.


2. Safe Mode

Please check if you can boot into safe mode. Sometimes apps cause the won’t turn on issue. If an app gets an software crash, it could bring an error into the system. So we are going to boot into safe mode and find the app that causes the issue and delete it. In order to boot into Safe Mode:

Step 01. Power off your phone.

Step 02. Power on your Galaxy S7. When the Samsung Logo appears on the screen, Press and Hold Down the Volume DOWN key until it completely boots up into Safe Mode.

03. There is a Safe mode displayed in the bottom left corner. Now you need to find out the app causes the issue. Try to find and delete the app that you think that might cause the issue. And then restart the device and see if it still has the same problem. If so, try to boot into safe mode again and do the same thing until the issue is resolved.

Tip. It’s not easy to find out the specific app that cause the issue. It might take a lot of time. Here is another suggestion for the easier way. If you don’t mind factory resetting, we recommend to perform factory reset in the Safe Mode. You can simply reset the device by navigating to Settings > Backup and Reset > Factory Data Reset. Note that factory resetting erases all data.


3. Wipe Cache Data

It could be happened due to the cache errors. So we are going to wipe cache partition in recovery mode this time.

Step 02. Press and Hold Home + Volume Up + Power buttons at the same time and release all buttons when the recovery mode screen appears.

Step 03. Soon you will get this screen. Navigate Wipe Cache Partition using the volume down button and confirm it using the power button.
