How to turn off Huawei Y9 (2019) if it is not responding?

If you cannot turn off the Huawei Y9 (2019) since it is blocked and the previous method does not work, we must proceed to turn it off and on again using the physical buttons.

To force shutdown your Y9 (2019) press and hold the power button (or unlock button) for at least 8 seconds until the Huawei or Android logo appears on the screen and release the button as it powers up again.

As a last resort, if you can't turn off the Y9 (2019) with any of the above methods and you need to turn it off, you should wait for the battery to run down. You can keep the screen on and do heavy usage to drain the battery faster.

If it continues without responding and without turning off or has gone into a loop, it is possible that some internal component such as the motherboard, memory, the screen or even the power button has broken so you will have to repair it or resort to the guarantee.
