  4. Select the Summary tab.

IPhone 2g will not boot to Apple logo or turn on.


Hi

Have you tried holding the power button and the home button on the front for around 10secs?

Try this, the Apple logo should appear and get the phone to boot up.

If that doesnt work, boot up your computer and make sure you have the most recent version of itunes on it and then hold down the home button on the front of the phone while plugging into your computer and keep holding down the home button until you get a message on itunes saying an iphone has been detected in recovery mode. Then release the button and restore your iphone as a new iphone

**** Because your phone wont power on and it has been restarted this way you need to restore as a new iphone to get it to work again meaning you will loose any info on the phone ****

Make sure you update your phones software its most likely a factor to your phone shutting itself down.

Ive put the details below on how to restore your iphone, while restoring it will automatically update it for you - (after holding the home button and receiving the message on itunes follow the restore info)

Hope this helps :0) - Please Leave Me Feedback


  1. Select the Restore option.
  2. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.

Hi,

Turn your phone off, hold down the home button & then connect to itunes and itunes will pop up with a message saying it has detected an iphone in recovery mode and give you the option to restore and continue through the steps to restore your iphone as new, this means all your data on the phone will be wiped, if you restore the phone from a back up it will put all your data back on, if you know your passcode by all means restore from a back up but if you do and it still doesnt work you need to restore as new

Use the following steps to restore your device:
  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.

My iphone 3g wont turn on it only shows the apple logo but doesnt load up


Make sure you have the latest version of itunes on your comp & power up comp & itunes

-power off your phone
-hold down the home button (around 6secs) then insert USB cable while still holding button then release button when cable plugged in
-itunes will then bring up message saying that the phone has been detected in recovery mode
- it will then give you choice to restore your iphone
-continue with this choice & restore your phone, you can either restore as a new phone (like new) or from a back up (all your stuff back), try from your back up first, if this doesnt work and you go back to square one then do this process again only this time restore your iphone as new and resync your info later on.

Hope this helps!!
