My DJI Mini 2 won’t turn ON/OFF – troubleshooting.

If the above standard turning ON & OFF procedure doesn’t work out for you, we have a problem. If you are one of them, here is what my research tells me.

Most users reported that the drone or remote controller stopped turning on/off after some months of use.

This indicates a hardware problem with the button. Buttons are soldered to the PCB board, and the Mini 2 assembly line seems to have some inherent fault that ends up soldering the button insecurely.

After some time, the soldering detaches, and the button stops working.

In such a case, either reset your Mini 2 or return the drone to DJI for repair, or get it repaired from your local electronics shop.

If you are a DIY person, you can do it yourself too. Below is a teardown video of the Mavic mini remote that should help open up the remote.

I hope you will find this short article helpful in solving your Mavic Mini 2 or remote controller issue.

If you are unsure of the problem’s origin, it’s always best to return the drone, especially if it is under warranty.
