Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

IPhone 5 was working perfectly, but when I plugged it in to charge, it didn't start charging. I could still use the phone. Now the phone died and nothing happens. Is the battery dead (as in broken)?

I would guess that you battery is fine, it is either your charger is not working or worse case your charger socket on you phone is damaged. Try connecting your iphone to your computer via the USB port and charging cable, if your phone starts to charge you know you have a problem with the plug side of your charging cable which is where your transformer is. Be aware that if your battery is totally flat it could take several minutes before you hear the beep from your phone to indicate that it is charging. If that doesn't work it could be your charging lead that is damaged so try charging with a different lead. If still no joy then you could be in trouble as the charging socket is soldered to the mother board and could be an expensive repair so fingers crossed it is only the charger that is damaged.

SOURCE: 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

Bought my iphone 5 and am unable to charge using both the plug and computer. however am able to charge using the iphone 4 plug. please help!


Before you can charge your iPhone on the computer, your computer needs to install the drivers for it. You might have to reinstall the drivers for it. A good way to check if the drivers are incorrectly installed is to see if iTunes detects it. Try updating your iTunes since the old version of iTunes won't work with ios6 and all iPhone 5 are shipped with ios6

My iPhone 4 is a few months old and last night it suddenly stopped charging. Of course i didn't realize it until my phone died during the day today and i tried plugging it in and wouldn't ch


The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

My girlfreind dropped her iphone 3g into a cup of hot chocolate, her parents went out and bought her a new iphone 4... i put the 3g on the radiator for a day and it started working again. The only problem...


Any exposure to liquid can damage internal components of the device. I wouldn't recommend sending the phone to Apple because it will be an out of Warranty repair of 199, however you could try a third party company that does repairs of iPhones like iFixit.

My iphone 3gs battery has died, before hand it said cannot charge with this accessory but was charging slowly. now its not charging. please help?!!


The 3GS phone is finnicky about charging withing certain accessories. Sometimes on chargers it'll say "Charging not supported by this accessory". Try unplugging it and plugging it back in. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. If the charger has worked before, chances are if you plug it in again, it might start to charge.
