    Today my phone was working fine and I had it charging as I was listening to music with it hooked up to an aux cord. The stereo turned off and now my phone won't turn on and all it shows is a solid red LED light. Sometimes it changes colors, with a mixture of red and magenta/purple. I let it charge for a couple hours and the light went light blue almost white. Still won't turn on but it was vibrating before when I had it charging. Did the stereo fry my phone? Like too strong of a surge went through the aux cord maybe? I've had previous problems with my battery, it drains quickly, so I hope that is just the problem. Can anybody shed some light? Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central! It's probably more of a battery issue. If you were recently having issues with it, maybe it finally died. Try a new one.

    My wife unplugged her galaxy s6 after charging and same thing happened. Screen went black and solid red light turned on.

    Heres how i fixed it: Press and hold Home, power, and volume down. A message came up about a "custom OS install". Press volume down to cancel. Phone should startup.

    Thanks for that advice, Chad. I had the same issue and your method fixed the problem. Strangely, my phone turned out to be fully charged when it turned back on.
