    I bought the Huawei Honor 6 about a month ago and it's an excellent phone. About an hour ago it felt seriously hot and I realised it had shut down. Now I can't turn it on, and when I plug in the charger nothing happens. When I connect it to my computer it makes a sound recognising something has been connected but nothing else.

    The phone doesn't have a removable back from what I can tell.

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you tried pressing and holding the Power button for at least 15 seconds?

    It's possible the battery is defective and failed. Worst case scenario is the motherboard failed You may want to try bringing it back to the store where you bought it and see if they can help you with a replacement. Otherwise, you may have to contact Huawei for warranty repair or replacement.

    Thank you for your response. I tried turning it on many times, and held it for 10 seconds probably in an effort but then I decided to hold the power button down even longer and it actually turned on. I came back on here to delete this question but just wanted to say thank you for your answer anyway, I appreciate it.

    Great! I'm not sure why this has to be done sometimes to power on a phone.

    It's the equivalent (almost) of a battery pull.

    But a month old phone? You already know what I'm going to say, right? "Bring it back."

    I have the same problem. I bought it 3 month ago. It is automatic shutting down without notice. I have to turn on for holding the power button at least 10 seconds. Huawei can fix this problem?

    Thanks for you help.
    You'd appreciate that I registered with this site just to thank you.

    If it vibrates when plugged in computer there's a chance of reviving by flashing the device. If you are willing to do so, I'll gladly help.

    Thanks for the solution. I had the same problem. I had bought honor 6 around 15 months ago. It was not working since this morning. now after holding the power button for around 12 seconds, it switched on. I was really worried since i bought online and the mobile is beyond manufacture warranty.
