Iphone completely dead

I received a broken iphone from a friend who no longer wanted it. It was dropped, then it had a white screen and vibrated for 6 hours or so until it died. Now, it wont charge, itunes won't recognize it, holding the sleep and button wont work, holding the buttons and then plugging it in wont work, and I cant bring it back to apple because its not under my name. any suggestions on what could be wrong with it?!?

If it doesn't turn on at all it's usually a broken dock connector or logic board. Hard to say what it is without opening it. Start with the dock connector, it's the cheaper part. Either can be replaced by a tech savy user and the part is available on common auction websites. There are iPhone Repair guides that show you how to do the replacement step by step.

My iphone 4s went completely blank black screen and it is not dead or powered off. i can hear it if it rings and it vibrates aswell. what can harm this to happen? is it old age?it is 5 years old.


water will have an affect on it if it has not been dried out properly the screen controller chip that is on the logic board will get damaged, =, they are not waterproof, you will need another logic board to repair this fault., can also damage the battery and the screen being in water for any amount of time.

I was texting on my phone when my phone screen went completely black. i thought i was maybe dead or i powered it off but i didnt.


Have you tried force shutting down your iPhone? To do this, hold down the Power Button and the Home Button at the same time for 5-10 secs, then power on your iPhone again, check if it works. Or try to reset your iPhone using iTunes (Backup your data first). If not, maybe the display of your phone is malfunctioning, send it to the nearest Apple Service Center for repair.

I dropped it and i cant see anything on the screen but it still vibrates and make noise


Ah, this is a common problem after dropping an iphone.
If you had your iphone for less then a year then you could try taking it back to the apple store and say the screen has stopped working and they should give you a new one under warranty. I wouldnt mention you dropped it tho ;).
If you have had your phone for longer then a year or apple wont give you a new one then you should seek help from a repair company such as the one below. Shouldnt be too expensive to fix
