Question about Apple iPhone 3G
It only will turn on while plugged into the computer. If I plug it into the wall it shows the apple logo then shuts off and does it again. I restored it and installed OS 4 and it is still having the same problem.

Get the USB cord to connect the iPhone to the computer and start iTunes but do not connect the iPhone yet. Hold the home button and on/off button together for 5 sec as the iphone is booting (apple logo appears on iphone screen). The iPhone will then turn off (black screen, Apple logo disappears). Hold down the home button and then, as you keep holding it, plug in the USB cord. The Iphone should now turn on, the apple logo should appear. After 7-10 sec a usb connector symbol should appear on the screen. You are now in recovery mode. The iphone should connect to iTunes and let you restore. If the restore is not successful you may have a hardware issue (def. logic board). There is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iphone if you want to attempt a self-repair, parts are easily available on Ebay.

Press and hold Sleep/Wake and Home until the iPhone resets.
When the Apple logo appears release Sleep/Wake, but do not release Home until you see the prompt to connect the iPhone to iTunes.
to restore the iPhone’s firmware, all your settings, all your media, and all your Apps.
I don't recommend you to do the offered backup, I've seen a few things more reliable then this backup, to say the least...
To avoid the screen of death, do not update all the features with the "Update All" feature, updates your features one at a time, avoid performing other tasks while updating your iPhone.

You need to a fresh restore of the iPhone. Hold down the home and power buttons together until the screen goes black. Then while the screen is still black, plug it into your computer WHILE holding down the home button.
At this point iTunes should detect your iPhone and tell you that you need to do a restore.
Hope this helps!
Please rate me!

Connect your phone to the computer and open iTunes. Hold both the home key and the power button until the iPhone turns off. Continue to hold them both for 5 more seconds. Release the power button but continue to hold the home button for 10 - 15 more seconds. I tunes should detect the phone in DFU mode. Restore firmware from this mode.
