First of all have you tried pluging the phone into the wall? second try this:

you need to perform a force recovery mode. to do this hold power and home screen buttons until the screen resets when it does keep holding the home screen button and plug in the phone to the computer after a few seconds itunes should see a phone in recovery mode and force you to do a restore. if that does not work you might have a hardware problem and will need to go to a store.

Turn UP brightness

Hi Michele,
lets suppose that your iPhone is a 3gs or 3g. That means that u can not turn up brightness if u haven't first unlock your iPhone because that can happen only with ios 7. A 3g-3gs can only be updated with-until ios 6.1... .1) So go to a place with no day light. or just with low light. If your iPhone hasn't any problem then you will be able to unlock and turn brightness on (Slide to unlock - Settings - Wallpapers and Brightness).
2) Check if the Battery is empty, hold down the Power Button for some seconds until it shows the sign for charging (i think is a battery sign).
3) If it is not happening any of the above then you have to reset your iPhone. Just connect it to your PC or iMAc and open iTunes. There you can see if your phone can be found from iTunes. If it can be found this is good news. It does n't have any damage. So, in iTunes you can find the function so as to reset it. Reset means your data will be erased and the settings will be set to default. So first do a back up and also save your contacts in outlook.
4) IF your IPhone is 4or 4s or 5,5c 5s go as above in a place with no day light or low light and just drag from upwards so as show the external menu of ios 7. There you can see the brightness setting. Good Luck. Hope it helps

First, make sure that if your iTunes version is high enough to fit the version of your iPhone.
About charging, I think it means the output current of your charger is to low to charge and run your iPhone at the same time. This case is most like that, when a iPad 2 link to PC it won't charge when the scree is on.
If you are using digital products frequently, you can try to get a dual USB output external power supple, which hold on 2 type of output current 1A for common cell phone, 2.1 A for iPad, Pad PC and some device which need high charge current

IPhone Black Screen, and nothing

Plug the iPhone into your MacBook, make sure the mac is plugged into a power source and open iTunes, if iTunes detects the iPhone, re-sync it from last back-up ... This should make the iPhone crash, reset and be back to normal. If not, hold down the sleep and home button, keep holding it after the apple logo appears, until it shows a USB plug into iTunes sign, the plug the iPhone into the mac and it should happen as before. Good luck cheers

My iphone does nothing it wont turn on i charged it i think its charged i cant tell because the screen displays nothing when i pluged it in to charge i heard it start to charge

See if itunes can see it. If it can you can restore it. If not with the phone off connect it to the computer and hold the home and power button for 6 secs. then release the power button but keep holding the home button until itunes sees the phone. now you can restore the phone.

Hangs up on start as I see apple sign on the screen,

1. Turn on your iPhone (in my case it would only get as far as displaying the Apple logo
2. Hold the power and home buttons down (the iPhone will power off after 10 seconds, but keep holding those buttons down)
3. After the iPhone powers off, release the power button (but keep holding the home button down)
4. After a couple more seconds, you should hear that magical “ding dong” that means the iPhone is coming back alive, and that Windows has detected it. You may even see a little “New hardware” popup in Windows. It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPhone is in DFU mode.
5. Now iTunes will see it as a DFU’ed iPhone and should ask you to automatically restore its firmware.
6. iTunes has to download the new firmware, and it takes a while, so go make a sandwich.
7.jailbreak your iphone and unlock.
