Sometimes, it might happen with your Galaxy S6 that it won’t turn on, or maybe the blue light will be flashing but the screen won’t work, or the phone might be working but not the screen.
This usually happens due to one of two things:
- The screen of your Galaxy S6 is defective, or
- There might be a software problem.
Usually it’s the second kind of problem which affects the users, i.e. there might be a software problem which is messing up your S6.
Here are a few troubleshooting techniques you can try in order to solve the issue yourselves.
Galaxy S6 Black Screen Solutions
First of all, you have to locate the volume up button located on the left side of your S6, the power button of your S6, located at the right side, and the home button, which is located at the bottom of your screen.
Then you have to press all these three buttons together. Press and hold the above three buttons for, like 15 seconds until an android guy comes up with the message, ‘Installing System Update…’
Now, wait until the menu comes and once it shows up, select the ‘reboot system now’ option, by pressing the power button to select that option.
If the system reboots and the display shows up, then great; but if not then we might have to delete the cache of the phone.
For that, we have to again press the volume up, home and power buttons until the message shows up. After that, use the volume down button to go to the ‘Wipe Cache Partition’ option and press the power button to select it.
Once that is done, select the ‘Reboot System Now’ option to reboot the system. Remember- Do take caution while selecting the option. If you select on the ‘Wipe Data/Factory Reset’ option even by mistake, your all data will get erased.
If the rebooting completes successfully, and your display shows up, then congratulations!
You’ve managed to mend the problem yourself! But if not, then there’s one final thing you can try before you send your phone for repair.
Press the volume up button this time, along with the home and power buttons, instead of the volume down button you used to press.
A blue colored screen will show up, with a warning message.
It’ll have three options. You have to press the volume down button to restart the phone from there.
DO NOT press any other button, even by mistake. If the screen shows up now, then awesome! But if not, I’m afraid there is some hardware problem with the phone, and you might want to get it checked out.
