Question about Apple iPhone 3G

1 Answer

For NO apparent reason my iPhone 3GS's backlight has suddenly ceased to work. All other aspects of the phone work perfectly. You can still see all icons on screen but have to tilt it so light reflects the screen. Not dropped, washed, damaged or anything I can think of. Reset, rebooted and restored to no avail.. Anyone any ideas?? Desperate

My iphone 3gs suddenly turn off and won't turn on


You need a new logic board. Apple should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it and replace the logic board yourself. You can get the part at iPad Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.
