Hence, if you experience same issue with your tecno phone, innjoo, Gionee or any other MTK phone, just follow the tips below:

Tips To Fixing MTK Android Phone Not Turning On

For Removable Phone Batteries

  • If the battery is removable, you should remove the battery for a while and then fix it back and charge afterwards.
  • You can also try using a desktop in boasting the battery and continue charging using the phone.
  • It might take consistent charging before the phone decided to power on.

For Non-Removable Phone Batteries

Like in the case of the Infinix hot note, the battery is non-removable.

  • In such case, you should try charging using your computer for a few hours before reverting back to power outlet. You can continue doing this at intervals.
  • If opportune, leave the phone on charge for longer periods and if after doing this for like two days and there’s no improvements, keep the phone for like 2 days without charging. After that, you can try turning on and hopefully, the device might turn on.

When the device turns on, leave it to charge for like an hour before commencing the flashing process again and this time, make sure there is no interruption during the flashing process.

In our case, it took like 4 days before the device revived back and we made sure there was no interruption when commencing the flashing process and everything worked fine. Device is still working very well till date. Best of lucks!
