Redmi Phone Screen Not Working
Fatal software bugs are a common reason why a Xiaomi phone won’t turn on. They appear for different reasons. Here are some of them.
- Operating system crash at boot (system freezes).
- An update was being installed on the device, and a shutdown occurred (the battery was discharged).
- After installing TWRP.
- The action of malicious virus applications.
Xiaomi phone won’t turn on: 3 ways to solve
Practice has shown that the most common problem with a Xiaomi phone is the inability to turn on the device. If there was a mechanical impact, such as a strong impact, before the malfunction occurred, then everything is obvious. This is, with a high degree of probability, internal damage to the board.
But what if the reasons are not obvious for centuries and the phone stopped working “by itself”? Let’s analyze the options why Xiaomi does not turn on, pointed out the ways to solve them.
Perhaps Xiaomi is completely healthy, but it does NOT receive power due to a faulty cable or insufficient power charging unit? Check them out on another device.
If everything is in order, then the reason may lie in the power button. Assess its serviceability realistically and visually. The button should be elastic, not crumpled, pressed with a slight subtle “click”.
Sometimes a non-original cover interferes with turning on the phone. Remove it from the smartphone case and try to launch again.
The microUSB socket often fails. With rough use, it wears out quickly, internal contacts move away from the landing pads on the motherboard.
Only professional repair in the service center will help here.
Why Xiaomi phone won’t turn on?
Very often, after some time after buying a new smartphone, users are faced with a situation where the Xiaomi phone does not turn on. We turned to the specialists of the ASC (Xiaomi Authorized Service Center) so that they could tell us the working ways to restore the phone at home.
How to solve?
- Leave the phone on charge for a long time: one to six hours. This time should be enough to bring the gadget out of the state of deep discharge.
- Try to connect the gadget to another, more powerful charger.
- Forcibly charge the battery from a 5 volt power supply, limit current to 300-350 milliamps.
If you have experience it is recommended to only remove the back cover yourself, using detailed instructions.
Lithium batteries used in smartphones have a built-in charge controller. During deep discharge, it closes the battery power line. This is done in order to protect against a drop in capacity to a certain value, so that the battery does NOT fail.
Therefore, when discharged, the phone may NOT turn on, even when connected to a charger. The alarm LED will flash red. There are also times when the white indicator blinks when pressed.
- Force reboot. It is carried out with a long (about 10 seconds) clamping of the power button. In this case, the phone should emit a short vibration signal and start.
- Reboot from the service menu. The engineering menu is entered by simultaneously pressing the power and volume up buttons. Next, you should turn off the device and try to turn it on again.
Re-flashing. Installing a new version of Android with MIUI shell solves software problems. In order to perform recovery in this way, you need to use special bootloader programs, for example, Mi Flash.

Hello dear friends! My name is Mikhail Xiaominko. I am a fan of Xiaomi technology, gadgets and smartphones. Having access to information, I try to Provide interesting and high-quality content for the readers of Xiaomi. I share the latest news and exclusive materials.
High-quality solid instruction! Sorry for her. It was not when I had such a troubles with my phone. Bought a new Redmi 5 Plus phone. I had another phone in parallel. Therefore, I used the new one for a week and a half to get used to MIUI and explore the main features. As a result, I did not keep track of the fact that the phone was completely discharged.
I took it on, but he didn’t. I kept the button on for a minute. the result was zero. I put it on charge did NOT react, although I got used to the fact that when you put the phone on charging the old one, the indicator immediately lights up.
It turns out that a really deep discharge has occurred. Chance also helped to understand this. Since it was a day off. I put the phone on charge and forgot, so it stood for 10 hours. Then I take it in my hand, press the button again and lo and behold, feel the vibration and see the MI logo on the screen.
I already thought. the case is a pipe, 14 days have passed, but my phone does not work, what if it’s a marriage. You can’t return it or prove anything. There was no limit to the joy of a work phone. )
I held it for 10 seconds and everything worked out. THX
I had a similar situation with the old Redmi 4. I sat shorter in YouTube, with charging. And she really sucks charged. the battery still sat down to charge. In the end, the phone went to zero (it was still working). The wire staggered. for a brief moment the charging was turned off. and the brick. Tried back to RUB, zero response. even the indicator is off. I decided to leave it on charge for a while. Did not help. Then I put on the charge from the camera, and left it for the night. I get up, I come to the phone. the screen is off. As a last resort, I pressed the power button. After about 10 sec. he. finally. got it! Now it’s standing here, charging. And the instruction is one of the few that WORKS.
I now have exactly the same problem, (put it on charge, I will wait and hope)
Great article! I save to bookmarks. Prepared means armed)
Thanks for the battery tip! I have an old Redmi 4x, and who knows the cover is conditionally non-removable. Holding the power button for a long time did not help. I had to carefully pry off the back cover to manipulate the battery. In the end, the old man turned on, showed signs of life, but I did not have to lose hope and carry him to the service, where they would take at least 400 rubles from me for thanks.
Thanks from me!
Thanks a lot. Thanks to this article, I was able to figure out why my Redmi does not turn on and turn it on again. I was already afraid, I thought that it was broken and needed to be carried. And this is extra time, money and would have to go without a phone. And it’s so nice, I figured it out myself and turned it on. Once again I express my gratitude to the creators of the site and the author of the article!
Hello. Nice article, informative. But unfortunately, it didn’t help me. I bought a new Mi8 when it went out. Became a brick. Any operations according to the article are ineffective.
The article describes solutions that help to turn on the phone in 95% of cases.
Please clarify what actions were taken with the phone? What firmware was?
By itself, for the phone to work like this, nothing was done, and in the end it went out and stopped turning on. the case is quite Extraordinary.
The phone may have been flashed?
Good afternoon, Redmi 6 pro is charging and does not turn on, constantly every 5 seconds the vibration lights up MI, goes out again and so on in a circle. what to do?
Judging by the symptoms, after the update by air, they grabbed the “bootlap”. It is recommended to look at 4PDA topic about remote recovery and EDL mode.
I have the same trouble with Mi A1, what to do.
I was helped by the option to stick out the battery cable.
I have a xiaomi redmi note 5a prime phone and when I want to turn on the phone I press the key on the right, the screen lights up in a second after 5, and it happens that I have to press three times. And more problems with the end of the call I can not end the conversation until the recipient disconnects himself, the screen does NOT light up (((
I have the same problem, the phone (Mi8) was just lying on the table (it didn’t fall, Bilsu). At first he stopped catching the net (he learned from people who could not get through to me). I turned it on, tried to call someone. it says there is a network. I clicked to restart the phone, and painfully it does NOT react to anything at all. The firmware version of miui 10 was installed on Android 9.
You managed to break the screen, then you repaired it yourself and now you are surprised that the phone does not work?
Yesterday, while using the phone, it just turned off, although charging was normal. does NOT boot when enabled. At the loading stage (KD built for people) something is written there), then nothing happens. I left it overnight for charging, but with repeated switching on and off, nothing happens beyond the above stage ((((
If it cannot be reanimated in any way, then can you somehow connect it to a computer, so that at least all the info can be saved? Just connecting to the computer as before does not work, does not see the phone ((
If the preservation of information is important, then it is better not to take drastic actions so as not to harm even more. In this case, it is recommended to contact the service center. Judging by the reasons described, the case is not quite standard, disassembly and diagnostics may be required for resuscitation.
Yes, and it’s better not to do Factory Reset yet, that is, reset to factory settings, since all user data will be lost.
Good afternoon. My Xiaomi redmi Note 3 turned off during use. the charge was sufficient. Does not turn on for charging DOES NOT respond indicator does not light
Such is the situation: mi 4c took it from the repair, changed the battery. All the rules worked. I had beta 10 miui 8.9.13 like. So, the phone has been under repair for a long time, and I decided to check for updates to the firmware. It turns out there are no more of them, well, everyone does not release updates for it, but I don’t even know much about this native updater, also in English.
There was a download update button there. Well, I downloaded it twice, until I realized that the updated version was not there and that I was installing the same version. Well, I left this venture, put the phone down, I think let it lie still, started downloading the firmware, I just wanted the Russian one, that’s the whole point. In the meantime. The phone went out and turned up. Without my influence.
Well, I think, okay, apparently the firmware has become crooked. I’ll put another one and that’s all. Fortunately, I have already got used to breaking the bootloader bolts, like in two fingers. But here the main pitfall was waiting for me. The phone is not recognized by the computer. The option is this, he did NOT zakirpichilsya at all, but can not start. That is, the logo appears, we go out again and again, connect it to the laptop, it immediately goes out and everything turns it on connected I can’t.
I must say right away that the battery was above 80%. So, in fast mode, the laptop does not see it either. I thought that it might be in the laptop, I put the USBs there. Nifiga, the reboot did not work, I went to the computer and everything is the same there. OU and the phone in fastboot mode does not light up for a long time, it turns off immediately. It was already deep night and I decided that the morning of the evening was tricky. I put my phone down and forgot. I woke up in the afternoon. I’m trying to turn it on. And then. NOTHING. Well, that is, absolutely no reaction.
I thought it would be an option to disconnect the battery physically, wait 10 minutes and connect it again. But I’m afraid a pitfall awaits me in the form of the fact that. Well, he zakirchitsya about and he does not accept USBs. And yes, when charging or connecting to a laptop, the charging indicator does not light up. What is the actual question: What else can it be, besides my guesses? Well, to how I undertake any actions. I just don’t really want to open it, I have a minimum of experience with smartphones inside. I would NOT want to break the train. And I can’t give it to repairs yet, but I can’t. A little later, if nothing works.
You can try to reset to factory settings, in some cases such a simple action makes the phone work normally again. It is only desirable that there was a backup copy of the necessary data, since “reset” deletes user data from the phone.
I almost have such a situation) in general, after the street, I went into the apartment to visit a friend after the frost) we sat on the phone for a while, he sat down, put it on charge after a while, I watch 2%, everything (I turned off the charging), the next day I come to myself and put on the charge.
As a result, charging above 0% does not rise! I lowered the settings to the factory settings 2 times, I did the battery calibration the same way without changes. On the usb charge I put it on, you can sit, the battery charge shows 65429%)))) but the charge does not go, I remove the usb from the phone, it turns off immediately and that’s it! I don’t understand how this happened, the phone was not damp. Clean in your on the street and after the frost street.
Interesting case. Thank you for sharing!
Set up your phone correctly! Internet, hard reset, graphic lock. Why the phone does not turn on?
It is impossible to imagine the life of a modern person without a mobile phone. Despite the abundance of means for communication and communication, this little helper is still in the first place. The phone has become like an extension of the hand, and its absence causes discomfort and uncertainty. what if someone calls or writes while the owner has lost his vigilance? Some especially fanatical users even move around the apartment with the device. it is in the kitchen, in the bathroom, and under the pillow. One can only guess what kind of disappointment befalls the owner if phone turned off and won’t turn on. What are the reasons for this trouble? But what if we are talking about a brand new smartphone? Don’t panic.
Sometimes it happens that the phone charging indicator blinks directly when trying to recharge it. That is, at the moment when the device is connected to the network, it continues to discharge. Experts attribute this anomaly to strong overheating, as a result of which the battery does NOT receive energy. The second option is to use someone else’s charger, especially if it is a low quality device, the use of which can be detrimental to the phone. There are cases when expensive smartphones failed after a short circuit in cheap chargers. After such experiments, it will not be possible to do without a hard reset or flashing phones.
The situation when phone does not turn on after update, it happens infrequently, but it does happen sometimes, especially with new smartphones that have constant access to the Internet. The phone receives various updates, the installation of which may be unsafe for the device. Problems usually start immediately after installing updates. the phone can independently turn off, then turn on.
sometimes the screen does not turn on, and if it is lit, then incomprehensible inscriptions like “Windows phone” appear on it. The shutdown / shutdown process can be repeated several times without interruption, and no intervention will help stop the malfunction of the device. In this case, you can try to turn off the phone by removing the battery from it, then insert it back and turn it on again, and then use the factory reset, which is different for each model. If everything is done correctly and the failure is not very serious, then the phone will reset and reboot itself. This process may take some time, after which the device will return to its previous state and start working as before.
If the installed updates have seriously damaged the phone, most likely, you will have to use a hard reset. only a hard reboot can restore the factory settings of the system, while all the information saved on the SIM card and memory card will remain intact, but the system information will be completely cleared. Contacts, SMS and all programs installed in the phone will disappear. But in this case, you have to choose the lesser of two evils. returning the phone to working condition will be much cheaper than buying a new expensive device.
In order to hard reset your mobile. you need to select the brand of your phone in the “Hard Reset” menu on the left and then find your model or use the search on the site (top menu). Do no harm!
Attempts to immediately disassemble the phone and check “what’s inside it” can be fatal to the fragile device. Without special knowledge, it is pointless to understand the structure of microcircuits and incomprehensible details. at best, these attempts will not help, at worst. they will lead to serious breakdowns, the repair of which can be very expensive, and even unpromising. It will be most offensive if the phone stopped turning on, for example, due to the fact that the battery is completely DISCHARGED. Before applying drastic measures, you need to try to rehabilitate the disabled phone, but for this you need to find out a number of reasons that can provoke a malfunction of the device.
