Hi, this happened to me once and I researched a fix by looking for 'iPhone black screen of death' Here's one of the current articles that comes up under that search: 1) If an application (such as Safari) is frozen, just press and hold the iPhone's home button for about 5 seconds, or until the home screen shows up. (This didn't work for my iPhone so we had to perform a soft reset). 2) To perform a soft reset, 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. (This action did reset my iPhone and I was very happy at this point). The guys that helped me said that continually performing soft resets can cause problems however. 3) Hard resets are not recommended, but are required when a soft reset won't do the trick. The Apple Geniuses wouldn't tell me the key combo to perform a hard reset because it restores the iPhone to a state that's unusable. Users risk losing data and you must synch your iPhone with iTunes to make it function after a hard reset.
Also, if you are not turning off apps after use they could be overloading things and might cause it to happen again. to turn off apps do a double tap on the 'Home' button, and all your open apps will be listed along the bottom of the screen. press on one icon and hold until the icons start to wobble and have the X in the top right corner click on these to turn them off. Its also good practice to do this several times a day if you use a lot of apps because having ghem open eats up your battery power.
Press and hold the Home button and the Power button for about 30 seconds until you see the Apple logo, then let go. It should power on. If not, plug in to your computer and perform a Restore from iTunes.
Try doing a hard reset, Holding down the home button and the sleep/wake button at the same time until your phone shuts off and turns back on. release both the buttons. If that doesn't solve the issue. Get your phone repaired by either setting up an apple store appointment at apple.com/retail or call 800myiphone(80069474663) to set up a repair
My iphone froze up today, it just gave me a half lit screen and I couldn't even turn it off, nothing would work. I held the home button and power off button at the same time for several seconds and this seemed to make it worse. I did the same thing again, and it restarted the phone. Nothing lost except for 3/4 of the battery life for some strange reason. All is good, my phone is back!
Ahh i think i had something similar to this.. what i did may work for you is, putting the phone in bootloader mode, hold power button + home button for like 10seconds.. This should get you to a screen where it will ask you to connect to iTunes and restore.
So plug it in, iTunes should recognise it and then you should be able to restore it.
