  1. If the phone is non-responsive how do you get it to respond? It doesn’t respond o holding the power button. It’s just stuck on the start up phone company name page.

    • If you can access your stock recovery then you can hard reset your device without turning it on.Check out the post’s hard reset section (the 2nd way).If that doesn’t work then your device is soft bricked.You have to restore your device to stock firmware.Download the stock firmware for your device nad flash that via Odin Flashing tool.
