Hello Bruce,

Try this first:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake (on top of the iphone) button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. The phone will turn off. Then, push and hold it again, until the phone comes back on.

If that doesn't work, try this:
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. This will do a "hard reset" and should bring your iphone back to life!

Please let us know how this works for you.

Best regards,
Bill

My iphone won't search without the screen getting dark and un readable then freezes


iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
After exactly 10 seconds 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.
The iPhone screen will remain black
: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

My iphone 3Gs is not starting up and is stuck on 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
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.

Iphone will not turn on after restore


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.
