SOURCE: iphone wont turn on after master reset

Sometimes the iPhone can lockup and stop working or just show the Apple symbol and not do anything else. But panic not, normally an app has caused the phone to crash and it needs to be restarted.
Here’s how you do it:

Sometimes just pressing and holding the home button for about 5 seconds, can help. But if not try this:
Press and hold the iPhone’s Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for several seconds, or until you see the apple logo on the screen.

How to master reset my Apple Iphone A1221?


Ok, I'm using my iphone 4 running 7.1.0 as my guide on this one, so I must not be using all the correct headings, but this should be close. Go to "settings->general->reset->Erase all content and settings". That should erase all personal data, contacts, songs, photos, etc... And reset all of the settings to factory default. If you think you may want to reverse this, or if you're planning on upgrading to a newer generation of iPhone and want to transfer your data then be sure you sync your phone with iTunes before doing this. Let me know if that does not work, there is another way to do it but it will require you to update to the latests version of iOS that your device can run, which will erase your jailbreak if you've installed one (not to be confused with re-lock your phone, if you paid to get your phone factory unlocked, and that does not mean a sim interposer, your phone should remain unlocked, no matter if you update iOS).

Iphone turns off after apple logo


If you have tried doing a master reset on the phone, it sounds as if you are having a hardware problem with the phone, such as some sort of damage that might have come from a drop or something. By the way I can fix the iphone glass screens, and digitizers.

My iphone didnt charge and its not turning on. my laptop charger is open like the inside part to charge it,i use half of my iphone charger to try charge it the battery was almost dead after a couple trys...


Try doing a master reset by holding down the Home button (the button at the bottom with the square), and the power button at the top of the phone down at the same time until the power off command comes on, but keep holding until you see the apple logo come on then let go. This is a master reset. Then try charging it. let me know how that goes.

I turn phone on and only get a white screen. cannot get anywhere other than stark white screen and thats it.


Hello. You have 2 things to try. Firstly a reset. This will just re-boot your phone with all of the data still on it. Hold the top right power button with the round home button until iphone turns off and you see the apple logo, then release buttons. Iphone will take 1 or 2 mins to re-boot.

If this does not work, often a complete reset will work. Sync your iphone to your computer so that you have all of your apps, contacts, settings etc backed up, then go to settings, general and reset all settings. This will give you a clean slate to start from and you can sync the iphone to your computer to get back all your essential data.

Hope this helps and if so please vote.

Thanks

Touch screen wont work


Try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until
phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo,
then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.

If this does not work, try an actual system reset. Sync iPhone to computer to back
up essential data ie contacts apps etc, then go to settings general and reset. Reset
all settings as a last resort. This will give you a fresh start and should sort out
the majority of any bugs the phone has. A resync with you computer will restore apps etc.

Hope this helps and if so please vote.

Thanks

Stays on apple logo and wont turn on


Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.
Reset

To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.
Hope this helps
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Here's what you should do: 1. Press and hold the Home button below the screen for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits. 2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears. 3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. If it continues to freeze 1. Reset iPhone settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but no data or media is deleted. 2. If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPhone. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. All your preferences and other data are removed from iPhone. 3. If that doesn't work, restore the iPhone software.
