Not much in the way of details here. What did you do before it did this? You may need to restore the phone using itunes.

Next time you turn it on (or off) hold the power and the home button for a while and wait. When you see the apple, let go of the power button, but still hold the home button (the one on bottom face of the phone). This should put it in restore mode, if you do this while it's plugged in to your computer (itunes open as well), iTunes should recognize that it's not right, and try to repair or reload the OS.

Good luck, try that, and let me know how it goes.

Just a reminder, if anything's not synced, it will be deleted from the phone during a restore.

Have you tried a hard reboot? Push the power button for 10 seconds and agree to shutdown the iPhone. Push the power button again to turn on your iPhone. After boot up start messenger. May be you will be asked to login with your apple ID again.

MY iphone is not turning on


If the iPhone is fully charged and still not turning on, try a hard reboot. Press the "Home" and "Power" buttons simultaneously and hold. The reboot process should start. You can tell the process has started when the Apple symbol appears on the screen.
  • If the iPhone still does not power on, try connecting the iPhone to the computer using the iPhone USB cable. ITunes should recognize the iPhone and power it on.
  • Contact Apple.com/support/iphone. Enter in the serial number of your phone and a description of the problem. Apple support will then give you a number to contact if the problem is still not resolved online.

    My iphone is stuck on the apple screen and just


    Turn phone off, then power on holding home and power buttons at same time. After 10 seconds release power but continue to hold home for another 10-20 seconds and the screen may go black but you will be in DFU recovery mode. Use iTunes to recover phone.

    If that doesn't work take it to an Apple Store or AT&T store

    Iphone wont turn on!!!


    Hi slondon83,

    I believe you will have to reflash your device, using the restore feature on iTunes and the CFU mode in you iPhone.

    To restore your iPhone, you will have to enter to CFU mode:

    1. turn off your phone, or wait it get turned off by itself.
    2. press and hold the power button for exactly 3 seconds.
    3. whithout leaving the power button, press the HOME button for another 10 seconds exactly.
    4. after 10 seconds leave the power button but still, keep the HOME button pressed.

    try all these steps, of course, while you iPhone is connected to your computer with the USB cable and the iTunes software is on.

    you might be able to do it with this method too:


    good luck!

    Iphone wont turn on at all help


    Have you tried a hard reset? If this doesn't work, have you tried plugging the phone into iTunes to see if you can do a full restore?

    Hard reset:

    1. Press the home button (the big circle below the screen) and the sleep wake button (the button on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
    2. Hold both buttons simultaneously for a few seconds, Ignore the "Slide to power off" and keep holding
    3. The iPhone should now shutdown automatically - (fade to black)
    4. Turn the iPhone back on by hitting the sleep/wake button.
    5. You should now see the Apple logo, your iPhone is restarting and thus booting up.
