Top 2 Solutions to Fix iPhone Not Turning On/Off or Not Responding

Here are 2 solutions for you to deal with the iPhone not responding issue and it works for the latest iPhone SE/6s/6/6 Plus and iPhone 5s/5c/5/4S/4 alike.

Solution 1: Hard Reset iPhone

If your touch-screen is unresponsive or you can't quit a troublesome app, then reset your iPhone. Press and hold both the "Sleep/Wake" button and "Home" button at the same time. Don't release either button until you see the Apple logo appear on your screen about 10 seconds later, indicating a restart. The reset will likely fix whatever prevented a shut down in the first place.

If the screen remains black, verify that the device has enough charge to turn on. Let it charge for at least twenty minutes, then see if it starts normally.
