My iPhone won't turn on

I saw the signal that told me that my iPhone was on low battery so i tried to leave it charging for 3 hours but when i went back to it, it was totally turned off. i tried leaving it charging under my pillow while i was sleeping but it was showing the signal that said it wouldn't charge so i tried wiggling the charger's wire a bit but nothing worked. i tried leaving it on charge in my bedroom while i was having a shower but still nothing worked. i tried that trick a lot of people tell is where you should try holding the top button and the home button at the same time but after that the charging signal kept flashing from charging to not charging (the flashing meant it kept changing from charging to not charging) i have tried to change the wire and the plug of the charger a couple of times but still nothing worked. i tried plugging it into my sister's MacBook Pro but it still shows the same signal. i have tried absolutely everything i could but nothing helped. i don't wanna go to Apple because believe me, they would just take a look at your phone and tell you what to do but that never works so can you please help me with this?? i've never had a problem like this before so can you please help me with this. Thank You xx -Ala

    Another thing that often works is to just take a clean soft toothbrush and clean out the charging port. It can get clogged with all sorts of debris that will prevent the cable from connecting properly.

SOURCE: Shows fully charged (plug icon), but isn't taking a charge. A;ready tried reboot/restore.

Get a can of air and blow it into the 30-pin connector and headphone jack to clear the phone of dust and build-up. This should clear up the problem. I learned this from an Apple Store Genius Bar associate.

SOURCE: my iphone wont charge

I had this exact problem too - same as the first two posts anyway.

It seems to be just a software issue and was easily resolved for me with a full power off and reboot. Here is how to do that safely.

Plug in the phone using the wall socket charger, leave it for a few hours to get a charge (i know it doesn't look like its charging). Later, press the on/off button. The battery icon appears with just a thin red line. Let it go back to black. Then press the the on/off button and the menu button simultaneously for about 8 seconds. A red button should appear on the screen with a question asking if you want to power off the phone. Say yes. (I think it was a slide bar, but can't remember now.) Wait a few secs while the phone powers off. Then remove the power plug from the phone. Now reinsert the power plug. After a few (worrying) seconds of nothing, a white Apple logo appears in the middle of the screen, a few more seconds and the iphone main menu appears. No data has been lost, no settings are altered, and best of all, the battery shows a full charge and seems to be back to normal again.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my Iphone 3g doesnt turn on.. I only get the apple

If you just see an apple logo or your phone does not turn on, there is a software problem and you will need to restore your iPhone. I didn't want to hear it, because now I had to redo everything; but it's the only solution.

Put your iPhone into recovery mode.

To put your iPhone in recovery mode:
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone to your computer, make sure your sound is turned on and not muted.
Step 2: Hold the top corner button for two seconds. You should hear a sound.
Step 3: Now, still holding the top power button, immediately press the home button and hold both buttons for 10 seconds. You should hear another sound from your computer.

Step 4: Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds.
Step 5: Meanwhile, continue holding the Home button and open iTunes. Wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode. You should also hear a third sound from your computer during this time.

Step 6: Click on your iPhone in iTunes. It should say it's in recovery mode and need to be restored. Step 7: Click OK and restore it.

Now you will need to re-jailbreak it, and restore your backup, and also put your music back in.

Good Luck!

How to turn on my ipad if it only has a battery sign and it isn't responding to a forced power.


Iphone's, Ipad's and Ipod's often wont respond straight away to charging when low on power.
Try leaving it on charge for a half hour before starting, if no luck, then hold down volume down (or up) and power button simultaneously.

Iphone wont charge


The battery might be damaged, but in most cases you can just let it be plugged in like you normally do. It doesn't show "recharging" because it has been too drained.
Turn on your phone after 15 min. in the charger.
If it still doesn't work, then you have to ask a store that supports Iphones.

7th generation iPod nano won't hold a decent charge.


Hi Sarah!

It is actually a common problem with devices that feature rechargeable batteries. The solution is to condition your battery. Once it is showing a 100% charge, disconnect and do not charge it again until the iPod completely shuts off and will not turn back on. Plug it back up to the charger and repeat. This will condition the battery to "know" when it is full and when it is not. Leaving it charging all day conditions the battery into "thinking" that it must stay charging or it is empty.

Hope it helps!

Iphone 3 went totally dead. I hooked it up to the wall charger for an hour, and it still won't even turn on.


This can happen sometimes with a lot of smartphones when the battery is completely empty. This is usually solved by letting the phone charge for a whole 24h. I hope this works for you!
Good luck! And please, if you do find this answer helpful give it thumbs up :)

1. 1. Connect the Charger and wait for 3-4 hours. After that, try to turn the iphone.
2. If not, try it on another charge Charger or usb port.
3. If all else fails, you need to contact the service for battery replacement or repair.

My Iphone 3Gs just went dead.


A lot of these phones get stuck. Reset by using the home and on off buttons. Hold home and on off for 30 seconds then let go of home while connected to computer. Leave connected to computer and restart computer. Leave connected to computer for awhile. Mine came back after about six hours. I think it has something with the RAM and the motherboard powering down. If that doesn't work try putting phone in restore mode and restore.

Iphone won't charge and now won't work


I left my phone charging for a few hours and it appeared not to be charging as the battery icon was staying at 10% of charge. I was confused because it had the charging icon in the upper right hand corner. If your phone is doing something similar i simply powered the phone down and turned it back on. The charge went from 10% to 100% on the display. This is what worked for me hope this helps.
