You could try putting the phone into recovery mode, then resetting the firmware through iTunes. To enter recovery mode you must: 1) Open iTunes and connect your iPhone 2) Press and hold the home button and the sleep button at the same time. 3) After 10 seconds, release the sleep button but continue holding the home button After following these steps, your iPhone should now be in recovery mode and ready to be restored using iTunes. Good luck!

You may have tried this, but if not it may help you.

1. Place phone into recovery mode
Open Itunes and connect iphone to computer>Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.>As soon as the screen goes black release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.
2. Google latest firmware or where the newest is located on your computer.
3. Hold option key (mac) or shift (Win) while clicking restore and choose newest firmware to restore to it.

Hopefully this will allow you to restore correctly.

My iPhone 3g died with no warning - I was just looking at a picture and then the screen timed out to turn off and never turned back on. Could it be dirty or something?? It won't make any noises, no lights,...


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.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button 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


More resets:

Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Please try a hard reset:


To hard reset your iphone:

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.

My iphone screen has gone completely white and cant do anything with it


You have one of 3 things going on here.
  1. Software related issue - If this is your case you're lucky! Just perform a hard reset and a restore by following the directions below.
Do a hard reset by holding down home and power buttons together until screen goes black. While holding down home plug the iPhone into your computer. iTunes should now prompt you to perform a restore.

2. Bad LCD - This would require warranty repair/replacement from Apple. If you're not covered you can google iPhone repair for a repair shop. If you want to do it yourself buy your parts on eBay. Not too hard of a repair if you are handy with electronics.
3. Bad Logic Board = Again if this were the issue you would have to use Apple repair under warranty or a 3rd party repair shop. You won't be able to figure out if it's a Bad LCD or Bad Logic board without swapping the LCD for a good one first.
Hope this helps,
Please rate me!
