Try holding down the power button & the home button until the apple logo appears on the screen. Takes a few seconds, but worked like a charm for me.

My iphone 3G fell face down really hard but had its bumper on so the screen didnt crack but it's just showing lines now and its a black screen. can anything be done to salvage the situation?


Hi Hiorbamy,
You might have just busted the screen. If so, you might be able to fix it for just under $26.00.
Step 1) Take the broken iPhone 3G to your nearest Apple Store and ask a Genius to confirm wether the iPhone is salvageable by simply replacing the screen. After the diagnosis, thank the Apple Genius, and leave.
Step 2) If the Apple Genius has confirmed that the problem is JUST the screen, order a spare one online. You can find the very easily by doing a simple Google Search for: "Pre-Installed Apple 3G Screen". You can find them for arround $25-$30
Step 3) Install the new iPhone screen by following the instructions that came with the replacement iPhone Screen.

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

Here is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iphone. a and replace the glass. Once it is open it's as easy as prying the old glass off the front assembly and installing a new one, the parts are available on ebay.

I have a iphone 3g got a replacement glass to replace the cracked one but it is only the screen. Am I better of getting a screen with a digitizer?


I recently had the same problem. You can buy the glass by itself (which you already know), but then you would have to chisel away all of the glass from the digitizer which is really risky, difficult, and may ruin the digitizer in the end. If your dropped your iPhone 3G and the glass cracked, you will need to purchase a new glass display AND digitizer. They will come together as the digitizer will already be glued to the glass display. This will cost you about $70 before shipping. If you are doing the repair yourself, you may want to consider getting a pry tool to help you take it apart (about $4). There are some youtube videos by PDA parts that show you how to take apart the phone. I ended up getting my glass display and digitizer from Mission Repair, as it comes with the adhesive strips you will need to afix the display to the frame. I got my pry tool from PDA Parts. Due to the lack of information out there about what to do when the glass on your iPhone 3g cracks, I ended up making a website to help people out. Soon I will have a video tutorial and as well as written instructions with pictures on how to replace the glass and digitizer yourself. The site is http://3gcrackedglass.com Good luck with the repair!
