Press and hold the power button for 1 full minute.

If that doesn't work, the phone will need to be reset:

  1. Press and hold the power button to turn the phone off.
  2. Next, press and hold the Volume Down button for about 2-3 seconds.
  3. While still holding this key press the Power key for about 3 seconds and release all buttons.
  4. Afterwards choose Recovery option by using to navigate Volume buttons, and to confirm Power key.
