    Welcome to Android Central! Let it charge on a wall outlet overnight, undisturbed. Then press and hold the Power button for at least 20 seconds to see if it will power on. If it doesn't, then try booting into Recovery Mode: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-23240.

    If that doesn't help, try a new or different battery.

    I've had this happen to my N5 once and it made me a bit frantic at first. What I did was plug the N5 in as if you're charging it. It won't do anything, so simultaneously press and hold the volume up, power, and home button for a several seconds. If that doesn't work try to simultaneously press and hold the volume down, power, and home button for several seconds as well. Don't take my word for it though and I don't want to say that one of those two options will get it to boot back up. But I tried doing those and luckily it ended up working for me. Hopefully you can get yours working again. Good luck!

    Yes, this worked. I pressed volume down, power, and home and held it for a few seconds and it finally came on. First a weird screen came on that said something about a custom os. I just hit "cancel" which was the power down button and then my phone started turning on again.

    Replace the battery. LOL. You would think you would know you can't change the battery

    Actually you can change the battery or have it changed but it isn't easy or simple.

    I had a galaxy note 5 given to me, it won't power on. appears the screen is cracked. there is a blue light on in the upper left corner, it does not flash it just stays on. How can I get this phone to power on? I have tried the hold down on volume down and power button. I have tried the up/down vol and power buttons together. I have tried the home and vol up buttons together, I'm at a loss. Can you help?

    THANK YOU! this afternoon my note 5 suddenly turns off by itself, never dropped it, never spilled water on to it, it was just fine a few minutes before, then just suddenly shuts down and wont turn on, and pressing volume down+power+home actually worked for me, again thank you guys!
