Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

My iPhone is on but the screen is black and wont turn on

The phone is not dead just hibernating and when I hit the home button it wont turn on. I plug it into iTunes and it doesn't recognize it is there. I push the on/off button and nothing. I did the 10 second hold on the home and on/off button that did work after about 3 tries. It is only 2 weeks old this is the second time and Im a little upset. Why would this keep happening? Should I get a new one or keep an eye on it? Help!!!!

Hello, My Iphone is completely dead. The battery went down and I was about 2 months without using it. Now I'm trying to unlock it but the Itunes doesn't recognize it. The screen is black with no battery....


First, plug the iphone into the wall with your usb cable and power adaptor. Then hold down the sleep/wake button (button on top left) and the home button (bottom middle button). Keep holding those two buttons until you see the Apple logo. This should turn it back on and then charge it. If not, Genius Bar.

My i phone wont turn on i try to restarted now it wont turn on i try to hold the home button and the power button a pineapple apears and it just stays like thet


This may not fix it if you "jail broke"it:::

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.

My iPhone 3GS battery died and now I get only a white screen...


Try 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.
  6. You have completed a hard reset successfully

My i phone screen has gone dead. I tried oressing button on top and by doing that apple sign comes on screen but goes off after some time and again screen goes dead.


Youre iPhones problem is for some reason, its default settings are (too heavy) so put it into DFU mode and restore it. DFU mode = Hold the home button and the top button for 10 seconds then release the top button and wait...make sure its plugged into the computer or it wont work. wait until the computer and iTunes detects that its in DFU mode. Then restore it.

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!

You may need to try a restore. If you plug in the phone and itunes sees it try to do a restore. If it won't with the phone off hold the power and home button for 6 secs. then let go of the power button but not the home. Hold until itunes sees it and you can restore.
