    I bought my galaxy S8 about a year ago and last night i plugged it to charge i checked on it sometime later and it was hot and turned off i tried to turn it back on but it won't respond i tried to press the power button and the down volume button but nothing i also tried the power/up volume/bixby button and still no response
    there's no response when i plug my charger either only it heats up a bit
    there's no repair center next to where i live so i don't know what to do
    has anybody ever encountered this problem befoure ? please help

    This sounds like a hardware problem. And if it won't turn on there is nothing you can do unless you are prepared to take it apart yourself (which will only help if you know what you are looking for and have access to the parts). Otherwise I think sending it away for repair is your only option.

    You're going to have to send it out to a repair company.

    Thats not good, I agree with Handron , it does sound like its a hardware problem. My stepfather has an S8 and I have taken it off the charger many times and dont recall it being hot. Seem like a motherboard problem.
