In most cases, you can solve these problems by putting the phone into recovery mode and restoring it from backup. To do that, follow these instructions:

  1. Connect the iPhone's USB cable to your computer, but not your iPhone.
  2. Turn your iPhone off. If the phone won't turn off in the traditional manner, just keep holding the buttons until the screen goes dark.
  3. Once you've turned the device off, press the home button on the face of the device and plug in the USB cable to the device's dock connector.
  4. When it turns on, keep pressing the home button until the iTunes logo appears on the screen.
  5. You'll know the phone is now in recovery mode because a window in iTunes will tell you.
  6. You can then start the restore process by clicking the "Restore" button in the iTunes window.

My iPhone turns on but wont. Light up what do I do


Did you try to reset it?
press both the home button and the on/off switch till the apple logo comes on the screen. When the display is defect you won't see a thing, so after 10 or 15 seconds nothing on the screen you can stop pressing. When you see the logo, release both buttons and wait about one minute. Then switch on with the on/off button.

Phone does not turn on, but an apple logo appears. How do I turn it on?


Hold power and home button until the phone shuts itself off. Once it comes back on it would be reset. Plug it into your computer to see if it connects to iTunes. If it does, then it will either A) work or B) not work. If it still doesn't work, try to do a factory reset with iTunes, or consult an Apple genius at the Apple store (or call them).

Blank screen with Apple logo


You could try to reset the iPad. Press the home button and the on / off button together and hold them till the light goes out.about 5 seconds. Then the apple logo comes back and in within one minute the starts screen should reappear.
I hope it works, because I would hate it if your grandson had to turn over his piggy bank. (Joking)

My iphone 3GS is stuck at the Apple screen. I've tried holding the off and home buttons to reset, but it's not working


Hi,

This is not a good sign and one of the most common causes with this device. I could tell you a series of troubleshoot.If that would not work, device needs to be send for repair.

Have you tried a hard reset? Hold the Home and Sleep buttons together for 10-15 seconds, until you see the Apple logo come up on the screen. You may need to do this while the phone is plugged into it's charger or a computer, so that it has power.
Usually If it's stuck at that screen, and holding the buttons together for 10-15 seconds didn't help, then there's a hardware issue, and it will need to be replaced.

However, try few more steps

1. Connect to iTunes via USB. Do not disconnect for rest of these steps. iTunes may appear frozen or stuck with spinning beachball....this is okay, do not Force Quit iTunes. I tried a few times w/o it being connected to iTunes and it doesn't work.
2. Once connected, hold Home + Power until screen blinks then Apple logo comes back up.
3. Wait until Apple logo dims slightly (~5 minutes or less). Do NOT reboot until the apple logo dims.
4. Hold Home + Power again until it reboots and Apple logo comes back up.
5. After 2 min or so, the phone may vibrate once or twice. Continue waiting for the full 5 min until Apple logo dims slightly. iTunes at this stage MAY recognize the phone...do not sync or do anything in iTunes.
6. Hold Home + Power for the 3rd time until it reboots. Phone may vibrate again after 2 minutes or so. Eventually you'll break into your Home screen.

Or
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.

Disconnect you phone from your pc leaving the wire connected to your phone not your pc.
open itunes
hold sleep wake button + home button until your screen goes blank...
let go of sleep wake button and continue to hold home while plugging back into pc... should take about 15-30sec and itunes will see your phone in restore mode

IF THIS NOT WORKING

Try rebooting you phone by plugging it into the charger & turn wall socket on

If that also does not work then you need to take it the apple store.. They will replace it or service it.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Iphone turns off after apple logo


If you have tried doing a master reset on the phone, it sounds as if you are having a hardware problem with the phone, such as some sort of damage that might have come from a drop or something. By the way I can fix the iphone glass screens, and digitizers.
