It could also be that the iphone is too warm / hot. turn off the screen, lock it while it charges otherwise if the phone is too warm before getting charged the phone has a built in sensor that will stop it from charging until its cool enough to continue.. its a safety feature.

You could try putting the phone into recovery mode, then resetting the firmware through iTunes. To enter recovery mode you must: 1) Open iTunes and connect your iPhone 2) Press and hold the home button and the sleep button at the same time. 3) After 10 seconds, release the sleep button but continue holding the home button After following these steps, your iPhone should now be in recovery mode and ready to be restored using iTunes. Good luck!

My iphone 3G just shut off on its own & it will not come back on when I try to trun it back on. Does anyone know more or less what I can do to fix that?


Is it completely charged? Plug it in and charge it overnight.

If it is charged, these steps may help:

Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

Reset


To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a 10 seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears


More resets:

Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Iphone wont tune on


First open iTunes and connect your iPhone CORD to your computer, but do not plug it into your iPhone.

Then press and hold the home button on your phone while connecting the iPhone cord into your iPhone. Continue to hold down the home button. Then click restore in iTunes.

If that did not work, check if the iPhone is charging or not. If it's charging, try to hold down the home button and the power button at the same time for five seconds. This should reset the iPhone.

But if the iPhone is no longer charging, send the phone to the nearest Apple Store.

Thank you and good luck!

Iphone will not boot


Can you provide more details?

Do you get a white screen? Sad iPhone logo? When you push power does the LCD appear to light up (dark grey color)?

If you hook it up to your computer does iTunes detect it?

if the phone appears to turn on, try putting it in to recovery mode

  • Disconnect your iPhone from your Mac or Windows computer.
  • Press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons simultaneouslyfor about 20-30 seconds, until you see a yellow triangle with anexclamation point in the middle accompanied by the text "Please Connectto iTunes."
  • Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes if it does not automatically launch.
