How can I turn off my Samsung Galaxy Note3?

I'm holding the power key down, but it won't turn off. Eventually the screen goes dark in sleep mode, but it's not turned off and it won't respond, other than to light up the screen.

If your phone is unresponsive when you push the power button, it means that your Samsung Galaxy Note3 is frozen. To fix this issue, simply take the battery cover off and remove the battery. Then, put the battery back into your Galaxy Note3 and turn it on. It should now be responsive.

If it's not, you will need to perform a Factory Reset, as something in your Galaxy Note3's software is buggy. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Remember that this process will remove all of your phone's data; but since you are unable to get into your phone to use it, you will not be able to backup your data.

If, after the reset, your phone is still unresponsive, there is a possibility that your screen's digitizer (the part of the screen that registers your finger's touches) is broken. If you didn't break the screen and you're still under warranty, Samsung will honor your warranty and you won't have to pay for the repair. However, if you did break the screen or if you're out of warranty, you may have to pay for the repair. Either way, contact Samsung's customer support to schedule a repair so you can fix your Samsung Galaxy Note3.

My Note3 will not power up and I did not turn it off last night when I recharged it?

I plugged it in last night without shutting it down. This morning it is quite dead. I did get a message that said "running alternate OS will damage the Note and to press the volume button. But before I did, it shut down and will not power up again.

My Note3 is acting weird - don't know what to do?

Hi. My Note3 is acting weird. It turns ON but the screen is all black, the blue pen light on the upper right is ON, it vibrates & sounds when it's turned ON or OFF but I can't see anything on the screen. After many attempts in turning ON/OFF, it finally shows some lines on screen with green or whatever color then turns off again. After another attempt it turns ON, but just for a while then it turns off again. The longest it went back ON was a day, the following day it went off again. It's very frustrating because it's been more than a year (1 year & 3 months to be exact) since I got the phone & I know it's not under warranty anymore. What shall I do, please help. Thanks

Note3 Frozen, tried everything, including removing SIM Card and battery?

My Note3 was left in the car under the sun. Now it is fully charged but does not turn off and the screen is frozen, screen touch does not work. Could you please help.. I have tried: Removed both the SIM Card and the battery. Pressed power and Volume up at the same time.. I think it was caused by: My Note3 was left in the car under the sun for few times. Now it is fully charged but does not turn off and the screen is frozen, screen touch does not work.
