Screen cell phone keeps blacking out


Restart iPhone

Sometimes all it takes is a restart for the iPhone to become responsive again. To restart your iPhone when it is unresponsive, press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons until the Apple logo appears (~10 seconds).

Very low battery

It is possible for an iPhone to become unresponsive if the battery drops to an extremely low level. Plug the iPhone into your computer or wall charger and allow it to charge for at least 20 minutes before using it again.

WHEN I TRY TO SEE RECENT CALL HISTORY THE I PHONE 3 GS REVERTS TO THE HOME SCREEN. IS THERE ANY WAY OF RESOLVING THIS?


hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use of.it could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications. if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
take care.

I reset my iphone 3g and now its been frozen for 2 days, it only shows start-up apple logo. please help!


Do a hard reset.
  1. Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
  2. Continue holding both buttons (Ignore the "Slide to power off") until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart.
  3. You may let go when you see the silver Apple logo.
  4. You have completed a hard reset successfully.
  5. Don't be alarmed that it takes quite a while to load from the Apple logo to the main screen. This is normal.
If this does not work, put into recovery mode and restore from itunes.
Step One
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.

Step Two
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

Step Three

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

Connect the phone to your computer and do a complete restore. Do not save the settings when you do this. This will save all of your stuff and rule out any software issues. If this does not fix it then you will need to set it up for warranty service with Apple because it is a hardware issue. Just don't tell them that you pressed the screen too hard, tell em it just "happened".

Iphone wont turn on!!!


Hi slondon83,

I believe you will have to reflash your device, using the restore feature on iTunes and the CFU mode in you iPhone.

To restore your iPhone, you will have to enter to CFU mode:

1. turn off your phone, or wait it get turned off by itself.
2. press and hold the power button for exactly 3 seconds.
3. whithout leaving the power button, press the HOME button for another 10 seconds exactly.
4. after 10 seconds leave the power button but still, keep the HOME button pressed.

try all these steps, of course, while you iPhone is connected to your computer with the USB cable and the iTunes software is on.

you might be able to do it with this method too:


good luck!

Iphone 3g screen wont come on i can hear the


You may need to try a restore. If you plug in the phone and itunes sees it try to do a restore. If it won't with the phone off hold the power and home button for 6 secs. then let go of the power button but not the home. Hold until itunes sees it and you can restore.

Put it into Restore Mode by turning it off by holding the Home and Sleep/Wake Buttons at the same time until the screen goes black and then WHILE holding the Home button, insert the wire and do not let go of the Home button until iTunes finds it. Then Restore it from iTunes.
