2. Troubleshooting Samsung Galaxy S10/9/8 That Won't Turn Off

If you wouldn't like to occur any installations, you can go through this troubleshooting guide.

Since the phone cannot be turned off, the soft reset(restart) is no longer workable. Therefore, I will walk you through the other troubleshooting steps.

Perform the Forced Restart

If this problem occurred somehow without any obvious signs or signals, then the phone can be assumed to be glitching in the system. That means the system crashed for some unknown reasons. At this point, performing a forced restart might fix this issue.

To do this, you need to:

Simultaneously press and hold the Volume Down and the Power keys for approximately 10 seconds.

If the restart proceeds, your Samsung galaxy S10/9/8 should boot up and you can continue using your phone.

Otherwise (the restart doesn't work), then continue reading the guide and move on to the next.

Charge the Battery

If your phone is unresponsive then you can try on charging the battery to see if the phone reacts or responds.

Normally, the Samsung S10/9/8 will display the charging icon and the LED indicator will light up. If your phone doesn't react like that, you can try to perform forced restart the phone but with the charger plugged in this time.

If it still won't respond, then disconnect it from the charger and let it be to drain the battery and try charging it again when the battery finally drained. If the charging signs show, try turning the phone on.

To do this, you may have to wait for several hours till the battery drains out and turns off. If you can't stand this, feeling tortured for waiting, or there are no charging signs when the charger plugged in again, I suggest you have your phone fixed in a tech shop or take the FoneLab Broken Android Data Exaction as the best option.
