How do I format my Android phone if it won't turn on? Of course, traditional formatting will not be effective in this case. However, do not get upset and panic. It is possible to carry out the conceived bypassing the operating system. Consider the main ways to format your smartphone, if it hangs and refuses to work.
This method is relevant for those users whose device does not work at all or when switching on, the logo is lit, and then the phone hangs. To enter Recovery mode, you must perform one of the following combinations (for different smartphone models, it can be different, so here are the most common combinations):
You will then be taken to the Recovery menu. You can navigate through the menu using the volume buttons or the touch screen. When confirming the selection, you need to press the power key on the smartphone. Confirm the action by pressing the "yes" key. Then select Reboot System Now. In some models of Android, it may be called differently. The device will reboot and will be formatted.
This method is relatively simple and effective, but it can have unpleasant consequences for the user. In some models, after turning on the Android, you are asked to access the Google account. This requires you to enter your account and password. If you have entered the required data, the smartphone will be blocked. You can resolve this issue with the manufacturer. However, to do this, be sure to take the warranty documents, confirming the fact of purchase. Otherwise, the employees of the center will not be able to help you. The Android will still be blocked.
Some Android models still have a specially designed format button, which is represented by a tiny hole. It can be located on the side of the panel, on the bottom of the phone, or hidden under the battery cover. To format the smartphone, you only need to press the secret button with a thin, sharp object.
A toothpick or a woman's manicure scissors are good for this. However, remember that in this case, you lose all the files and information stored on the phone. It cannot be restored.
To do this, you need to connect your phone via USB to your Windows PC. If, after connection the computer detects the smartphone as an unknown device, then you need to download the appropriate drivers for the phone model and install them on the PC.
If even after this, the computer does not recognize the Android, you need to unplug it from the cord, remove the back cover, remove the battery, and plug it in again. Now the problem will definitely be eliminated.
Follow the algorithm:
After that, the smartphone returns to the factory settings, turns on, and works properly, turning from a non-functional brick into a functioning Android. If the above method does not work, then the problem lies in the hardware. And you should contact a service center to solve the problem.
