Question about Apple iPhone 3G Black Smartphone

3 Answers

IPhone display light problem: My iPhones display light is no longer working. It randomly works from time to time however if I hit the home button to display my keylock it does not light up thus making it extremely difficult, if not all together impossible in the dark, to read the screen. Has anyone else run into this?? Any known fixes? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Try to factory reset the iPhone with the latest version 3.0 on iTunes and see if that helps if not then its a hardware problem and not the software issue.

My iPhone 3GS screen is going crazy! Randomly if I click a letter on the keyboard let's says 'a' then it starts clicking other random letters like 'p' Also, when I'm running an app an let sat I scroll down...


My 3gs has been doing the same thing for the past few days until it got to the point where it opened up settings and started hitting all the different sounds! lol
First i was going to restore but the restore ended up failing due to some kind of unknown error. I then thought what about doing a "hard reboot" by holding the lock button and home button together until it shuts off, then release the lock button while still holding the home button for 10 seconds. That worked. I guess its like disconnecting the battery for a bit. Hope it works for all !!!

My iPhone 3g died with no warning - I was just looking at a picture and then the screen timed out to turn off and never turned back on. Could it be dirty or something?? It won't make any noises, no lights,...

Iphone wont tune on


First open iTunes and connect your iPhone CORD to your computer, but do not plug it into your iPhone.

Then press and hold the home button on your phone while connecting the iPhone cord into your iPhone. Continue to hold down the home button. Then click restore in iTunes.

If that did not work, check if the iPhone is charging or not. If it's charging, try to hold down the home button and the power button at the same time for five seconds. This should reset the iPhone.

But if the iPhone is no longer charging, send the phone to the nearest Apple Store.

Thank you and good luck!

Unlocked Iphone reset


Holding down the Power and Home buttons to do a hard reset will not harm your phone. You will lose the call you're on though. I am having the same issue where I'm on a call and after I'm done have a hard time getting the display to turn back on. Usually hitting Home a million times works, but so will a hard reset. Failing that, call up Apple to see if they can look at it/replace it.
