Hi there and welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.
Can you please hold the power button on the device until you see a menu and choose power off.
Then power on the device and tell me if it still has the problem.

Can’t get the machine to power off

You could not find the home button still?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Still unsure which button you mean, I’ve only gone buttons on the side and top

Do it this way instead please

  1. Press and hold either the volume up or volume down button and the top button until the power off slider appears.
  2. Drag the slider, then wait 30 seconds for your device to turn off.
  3. To turn your device back on, press and hold the top button until you see the Apple logo.
