Hard Restart is complete, you can let go of the buttons.

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus:

Solution 6: Check iPhone Battery Health

Lastly, if any of them aren't working then, most probably it is a hardware issue. It may be related to the battery of the iPhone, so, you need to check the health of the battery. Usually, a notice appears, if the battery needs servicing.

Go to the Settings and tap on "Battery"; quite possibly there will be a message stating "Your battery may need to be serviced". If you find such a message then take the battery for servicing. But we recommend changing the battery completely if such message occurs.

In the end, this is like every iOS issue, it can be caused by a software issue or a hardware issue.
