My iphone 3 is not working only the apple sign is coming while charging the phone


1. Turn the iPhone off by holding the button on the top of the iPhone for 10 seconds, until the screen is black.
2. Plug your USB Cable into the back of your computer (the back USB ports can be higher power then your front ones, if your using a laptop, just plug into any one) 3. Open iTunes on your computer, make sure its fully updated (it will ask you automatically to update)
3. Now hold down the Home button on the front of your phone (The button on the front of the iPhone, at the bottom, has a square inside of it, your thumb will fit into the button to press it down)
4. While holding down the home button, plug it into the computer, and keep holding down the home button 5. Eventually you are going to see a connect to iTunes screen on the iPhone display, this may take 30-45 seconds. (A USB Cord with an arrow pointing towards the iTunes Logo)
6. Once you see that screen, let go of the button 7. A Message should pop up in iTunes saying it has detected the iPhone in recovery mode and you must restore to continue 8. Click ok, and there should be a Restore button in the middle of iTunes on your computer 9. Click this and it will say it needs to erase everything and update. You must do this, there may be backup files for your iPhone on your computer, if there are, it will automatically ask you when its done to load those onto your phone.

Pc screen goes black when iphone connected with itunes running


Hello can you tell me if your iPhone is a 2G or 3G and are you plugging it into a USB 2.0 port?
if it's a 1.0 usb port that could be your problem.
the 3G doesn;t like anything but 2.0 usb and won't work.
the 2G is a little more forgiving.
also, is your phone pwn'd / unlocked
you may need to restore your iPhone and reunlock it.
I can help with that also.
if you wanna hook up on msn or yahoo let me know i will walk ya through it

IPhone 3G Error 0xE8000001


Where did you purchase your phone? however, you first need to update itunes to 8.0.2, that might solve your problem. Unless you have an unlocked phone then restoring your phone is useless because when you restore an iphone with itunes in the US without an att sim card it will actually lock the phone, but I do not think that is your issue. the two things you are seeing the connect to itunes and the emergency call system means that your phone is not properly activated. which is done by connecting it to itunes.

My iphone won't sync with itunes. it did at first but now keeps coming up with an error I have an original iphone, never been jailbroken or any such thing, and can not currently get it to sync with itunes...


Recharge
Make sure iPhone is charged. Connect to a USB port and look for the lightning bolt battery icon in the upper right. If you don't see this icon, then iPhone is not charging. The battery will charge to 80% in an hour.
Note: If you put your computer into sleep mode while iPhone is connected via USB, iPhone may not charge.


This screen means to keep iPhone connected so it continues charging. Please note:
If iPhone is not sufficiently charged it will not show up in iTunes
Use a high-power USB port such as the one on your computer, or use your iPhone AC adapter.
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.
Make sure you are using USB to charge. Accessories that use FireWire to charge are not supported with iPhone.
If you see the red part of the battery image flash three times and then the screen goes black, it means that iPhone is not receiving power to charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Retry with a different USB port.
Note:
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Restart

Try restarting iPhone. To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

Does iPhone appear frozen or stuck? Try pressing and holding the Home button for at least 6 seconds to close a frozen application. Then try restarting iPhone again.

Note: If that doesn't work, try restarting your computer.
If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Reinstall

Reinstall iTunes 7.7 or later.
Get the latest version of iTunes (7.3 or later) from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Thanks.
