Is your iPhone not turning on? 5 steps to fix it

Sequence of Actions

First. Make sure that the battery of your iPhone is charging. Put it on charge. First through a PC. If that doesn't work, use an adapter with a plug for a regular wall outlet. It's possible that the phone's battery is drained to zero and there isn't enough power to even open the home screen.

Second. "Hard reset" or "forced reset". The method is a universal remedy for various failures and hang-ups of the phone. Not absolute, but the most effective.

For owners of older models. Within ten seconds, hold down the power and "Home" buttons simultaneously. On iPhone - volume down button instead of "Home".
