Question about Apple iPhone 3G Black Smartphone

Computer doesnt recognize nor charge the iPhone

My housing was completely busted so I had to replace it. I know how to take apart the iphone so don't think I don't know. After I replaced the housing, there was something wrong with the home button so i decide to fix it. After fixing it the iphone started to not work even when connecting to the computer. I waited 30 min for the iPhone to charge and it still doesn't seem to want to recognize that the iphone is connected nor charge but for some reason it the battery started to get too HOT even though my firmware is still 2.2 or whatever the firmware before 3.0 is. I'm thinking that the battery is faulty and I need to buy a replacement so I bought a new one (well its just been dispatched). Honestly I don't know if it is the battery fault or the iPhone logic board (which I highly doubt because I never damaged it in any way and carefully reconnected everything together and obviously it worked after reassemble it but after the home button problem it stopped working).

I wanted to know, if you remove the battery and connect it to the computer, would the the iPhone respond? or it wouldn't recognize it? if it doesn't recognize it then I'm sure that the battery connector is somewhat faulty and its making the usb give more power to the battery than it should (?) so im guessing that replacing the battery will by my solution but I'm not so sure since there a chance that my logic may be damaged. What are you guy opinion about it. If you want to ask more question then I'm happy to answer it.

Sorry my english... i Think thatthe battery connector is not clean or sulphated. could have an ferric micro piece in there, because is the only way for the battery rarely start to get too HOT.. micro short circuit...
by the other side, when the home butom is damage, is because dust and little crab is allowed in there...repeat sorry my english.
there are a lot of apps in Cydia that allow you to replace home button function, so you will be fine at least...

You have damaged your phone in the process

battery should not get roasting hot.
and your dock connector seems either shorted or broken also.
i would get someone who unlocks phones (market stall folk) and ask em to have a look.

this should not cost much if u act like u want to buy thier service, :-)

If you're experiencing problems with charging your device, or your phone is not recognized when you plug it in, then you may need a new charging port.

I have the same problem, After replacing the housing, phone is not recognized by the computer nor charging. But still I can open it and play games.......... I changed the dock connector but nothing happened. I replace a new logic board and it works..... So 100% the problem is about the logic board. I did the housing very carefully and am sure I broke nothing. Seems weird to me. Anyone here know how to fix the logic board based on the issue i talked about? Appreciate for any help.

IPhone 4 screen has gone dark but can still see the icons


Sometimes this happens when the LCD is newly replaced and is not plugged in all the way. I would suggest taking the iPhone 4 apart and pressing down a bit on the LCD connector. If this doesn't fix it, your phone/LCD is damaged and is in need of a replacement.

Just in case people don't rip you off with the repair i am going to give you the price for a LCD assembly which is $25 - $35 (That is if the problem is on a faulty LCD not the board).

Have a nice day! And good luck!

Need to replace the driver's side glass mirror with turn signals


Those are usually sold as a one piece unit. I normally don't replace just the glass. Open the door panel up and you should see the wiring and 2 to 3 nuts holding the studs for that housing din place. remove those and remove the housing. As far as opening the housing I don't even think you can.

How much do they charge to fix an iPhone 3G with water damage?


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.
Ouch! if the mainboard of the phone has to be replaced. 8GB board costs around 180$
It won't be cheap, you could try taking it apart and drying it yourself. Take it completely apart, put it in a airthight container filled with rise and close it up, leave it in a warm room for 2-3 days. The rise absorbs the moisture, and the heat dries any water remaining.Then put it back together and hopefully it works. You can probably see a guide on how to take yours apart at http://www.powerbookmedic.com/iphone/

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Ekse

I replaced the screen on my cracked iPhone 3G. The phone turned on and worked fine, but the home button was unresponsive. So i took the screen/LCD out to check the connections. The phone turned back on and...


put it on DFU mode. then, try to restore it using iTunes.

I believe that you have a problem w/the home button. maybe it's pressed all the time, so the phone cannot boot.

try dismatling the screen again, and check the home button contacts.

if you think the contacts are not ok, try to replace the home button.

if yo thinks there's no problem with the home buttons, try to enter to DFU mode:

1. turn off and connect the iphone to the USB.
2. press and hold power button for 5 sec
3. press and hold power and home button for 10 sec
4. leave the home button pressed until the computer recognize the iphone as a DFU device.
5. restore with iTunes.


Cheers,
Gery
