Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

Open Question

My iphone 2g died when hooking up to itunes -it lit up for a second and then went blank. Two complicating factors: 1) the usb connection is finicky. 2) the 'power' button doesn't work at all. I've got it taken apart now what can I do to get it working?

Reset and Restore iPhone to Original Default Factory Settings with Recovery Mode iPhone display freezing? iPhone doesn’t detect by or appear in iTunes? iPhone cannot sync with iTunes on PC or Mac? Cannot make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or access email or the web? Or worse, iPhone simply won’t turn on and does not respond to tap or button press? If the problem still persists after you have reseted the iPhone, or tried various iPhone troubleshooting, it may be worthwhile to invoke recovery mode to restore iPhone to default factory settings, the original state as when you first received and unwrapped the phone.

Restoration of iPhone to original factory defaults will likely to fix all problem, with the downside that all data and information stored on your phone will be lost. Normally iTunes will make a backup automatically when you connect and sync the iPhone with the program, however, it’s still a good recommendation to copy out and backup everything that you may need on the phone before proceed to restore the iPhone.
To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps:

  1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
  2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. iphone-recovery-mode.jpg
  3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven’t.
  4. Run and open iTunes if it’s not already opened yet.
  5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
  6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
  7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it’s hardware related

Well, your SIM card must be compatible to your iphone carrier. From what I understand, so far only AT&T is able to give out SIMs for iPhones; however, that may have changed to the addition of another carrier (perhaps Verizon, or so I hear) If you have the correct SIM card, then I would suggest that you go to your nearest wireless store and ask for one that may help your situation. Otherwise, if you don't want to do that then just unlock your phone :) There are videos on youtube that you can look at, programs that you have to download and what not, but it's doable.... or you can take it to a side stand wireless and have them unlock it for you :)

Getting message error -40 cant connect to itunes on my ipod 2g a1288


1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.

2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)

3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.

4. After around ~10-20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your CPU as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode.

5. After iTunes recognizes the iPod Touch/iPhone, let go of the Home button otherwise it will go into recovery mode and you will have to do the entire DFU process over again.

6. You will know when you have put your iPod Touch/iPhone correctly into DFU mode when the display is blank and that you do not have anything on your device.

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
