In many instances where the LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen is not turning on, the issue is often found to be with the charging cable rather than the phone itself. The reasons for this can vary, such as:

Broken cable:- Although the cables included in the packaging is known to have a certain breaking point. If you notice any damage to the cable, it is important to replace it right away.

Cable not supported:- Another issue that frequently arises with cables is when you have recently replaced it, but it is not compatible with your smartphone. It is advisable to always use the cables provided by the smartphone manufacturer to avoid such problems.

Cable not fitting:- It is becoming increasingly common to see chargers falling off the port. This can happen with original cables after prolonged use. Therefore, if the charging cable for your smartphone is no longer fitting properly, it is advisable to replace it as soon as possible.

Check Charging adapter

After the cable, the next thing which might cause LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen not switching on related problem could be the adapter itself. Just like the cable, the adapter can also malfunction at times and may not be visible to the naked eye. If the cable appears to be working properly, it’s best to check the adapter for any issues.

The best way to find this out is simply by trying different adapters & see if your Android phone is switching on or not. It is advisable to purchase the officially supported adapter from the official brand itself.

If your phone has a removable battery, take it out and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. This will cut off power to all the circuits in the phone. Once you have done this, put the battery back in and press the power button. Your phone should now be turned on.

Boot your mobile into recovery mode. (Recommended for non-removable battery phones).

Ensure that your smartphone is turned off. Simultaneously press and hold the power button and the volume down key until your phone starts up. If you have done this correctly, you will now be in recovery mode. Use the volume up and down keys to navigate through the options and select options using the power button.

To wipe the cache partition on your phone, use the volume keys to navigate to the option and select it by pressing the power button. After the cache is wiped, new cache files will be generated. To complete the process, turn off the phone for a brief period and then power it back on.

If, unfortunately, your smartphone is still not turning on, you should attempt the final method that we have outlined below.
