Hi! Suddenly the screen on my new A52s is totally dead.
So it's gonna need repair or replace under warranty.

Before I send it in I need to wipe it using the Android find device service.

Problem is it cannot find the A52s. And I don't know if it's turned on or off since the screen is broken.

How do I turn it on and know it's on?

Will the find service find it even if it's turned on but not logged in, which probably will be the case if I manage to boot it.

The device is all stock.

Thanks in advance for any help!
