Google Pixel 3a - Soft Reset (Frozen / Unresponsive Screen)

Note Notes:

  • A soft reset (turning the device off then back on) is similar to restarting a desktop computer and is one of the first steps in troubleshooting a device.
  • In most cases, a soft reset won't affect data on the device, unless the battery is very low.


Press and hold the Power button for approximately 10 seconds or until the device power cycles.
