What To Do If A Discharged Ipad Or Iphone Does Not Turn On During And After Charging
Apple has created the ultra-reliable iPad tablets and iPhone smartphones that millions of people use. But for all their reliability, they also have weaknesses, one of which is the electronic power circuit. Its malfunction is manifested in the fact that the gadget after a full discharge does not want to charge or turn on after a full charge. However, this behavior does not yet indicate a serious malfunction. The reasons may be various defects in the power circuit. In the vast majority of cases, you can launch the gadget yourself without resorting to the help of a service center. The process of restoring the power supply circuit after failures is not particularly difficult and does not require specialized training. It is available to any owner of an iPad or iPhone.

Reasons for not charging or turning on your iPhone or iPad
The principle of operation of power circuits for iPad and iPhone is almost the same and is based on the same element base. Therefore, problems with discharging and turning on after charging the battery they manifest in a similar way. The most common causes of a failure in the gadget’s power circuit are battery problems, software errors, and a power controller failure. The first two types of problems can be completely eliminated by yourself, but the problem with the hardware, if the user does not have sufficient experience, it is better to entrust the service center to specialists.
The gadget is dead and does not turn on while charging
If the gadget is discharged and does not turn on during charging, it means that the smartphone is deeply discharged or there is a conflict at the iOS software level. To troubleshoot the following steps:
Press and hold the Power and Home buttons simultaneously for ten seconds. For iPhone 7, you need to press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons.
Press the Power and Home keys simultaneously for 10 seconds
Silent mode on iPhone turns on and off with a special button on the phone
If after these steps the result is not achieved, the cause of the problem should be sought in the power adapter or cable.
iPad and iPhone lose their charge much faster at low temperatures. When you try to charge the product after it has been in the cold for a long time, especially in frosty weather, the power circuit can instantly fail. Therefore, at the entrance to a warm room, before turning on the power outlet, the device must be heated for 20-30 minutes.

The gadget is charging but not turning on
If the gadget is charging, but no reaction occurs when you try to turn it on, this indicates a problem with the battery. Since it is not removable on the iPhone, and it is difficult to get it on the iPad, there may be some difficulties with testing this part.
The inclusion problem may occur during deep discharge, if the gadget has been in a discharged state for a long time. To fix the problem, you can apply the three most famous methods:
- Replenish the lower battery threshold:
- plug the charger into a power outlet;
- leave the device turned on for 6–12 hours to restore charge losses during prolonged contact with the mains;
- try to turn on the gadget and check the download of iOS.
To replenish the lower threshold of the battery capacity, you can try to leave the phone on charge for 6-12 hours
To enter DFU mode after the standard procedure for starting forced loading, you need to hold the Home button for another 15 seconds
A quick discharge of a charged battery may indicate that the time has come to replace it. The most susceptible to such a defect are gadget batteries, for charging of which non-original chargers are used. The thing is that they can give out too much or, on the contrary, very small amperage that does not fit the range set by the manufacturer. This extremely negatively affects the battery capacity and leads to its premature wear.

The gadget does not charge and does not turn on
In some cases, the device may not charge or turn on or off immediately after the start of the charging process. The causes of the malfunction can be three elements:
- aftermarket charging;
- power controller.
For a user who has a problem when the gadget does not charge and does not turn on, it is best to contact a service center for diagnostics and product repair. Attempting to repair the gadget yourself can lead to irreversible consequences. If the gadget is under warranty, then opening the case will be the basis for the termination of warranty service. Then the product will have to be repaired at its own expense.
You can carry out repairs yourself only if the device is removed from the warranty after the specified warranty period has passed and you have the relevant experience and training.

Software and electronic component malfunctions
Sometimes there are problems with turning on the device and charging it, due to errors in the installed software.
Failures in firmware or application operation
The most common problems for this group are the following:
- The Apple logo appears on the display of the gadget, but when you press the Power key, the device does not turn on. In this case, you must:
- force a reboot by simultaneously pressing the Home and Power keys;
- if the problem persists, update the device software;
If your smartphone freezes and the Apple logo appears on the screen, it makes sense to update the firmware of the device
If the empty battery icon appears on the screen, it means that the phone will turn on soon
If the screen displays the symbols of the electric plug and arrows that indicate lightning, it means that the battery is fully discharged and its capacity needs to be restored
You can not drop the gadget in the discharged state for a long time. This does not affect battery capacity in the best way. With timely recharging, the battery life is extended to the nominal value.
