Strange Occurences and Now it Won't Turn On

I've had my 8 gig iPhone for almost 9 months now with no problems up till now. Today, my phone started showing me the "This Device Does Not Support iPhone" Airplane mode message over and over again at least once every minute or sooner even though my phone wasn't plugged into anything. Then, I started playing my iPod and these bars of yellow and white ran down the screen like blinds and then the whole phone just shut off. I tried picking it up and it literally burned my hand. I've let it cool down and now the phone won't turn on at all. Holding either the home button or both buttons together doesn't do anything, putting it in a dock doesn't do anything, and when I tried to hook it up to either of my computers it didn't show up at all, nor did it turn on or show any sign of life.
I'm fairly certain that this thing has finally just bit the bullet and crapped out on me, but just so I know I've done everything possible before replacing it, does anyone have any suggestions or any clue as to what has happened? All thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated

Sounds like circuits were shorted, possibly by moisture or from the heat of the battery. I think your phone went from bad to worse and is completely self irreparable. I think you may want to consider having Apple service your phone. Otherwise, you'll have to buy one of the new 3Gs.

Check to see if your phone is still covered under Apple's warranty.

Since the iOS 9.1 update, my iPhone 5 has lost all Bluetooth connections and I cannot make them reconnect?


  • Turn off Bluetooth and restart your iPhone or iPad.
  • Repair the Device you Connect: Go to Settings > Bluetooth > Choose the device you are having issues with > Tap on the info button next to the device > Tapon Forget This Device.
  • Reset Network Settings: Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. You need to set up your Wi-Fi connections again after doing this.
  • Try restoring your iPhone: You can restore your device from iTunes or iCloud. Bear in mind that it will erase your existed data so you'd better back up your iPhone or iPad in advance.

I've sony vaio vgn-cs110e purchased from US before 9 months, it works fine till today but today when i turn on the notebook it stats normally and also i can work normally on it but suddenly after 5 minutes...


You have to tell us the error message that it shows when it turns off. And if it is not showing any message and just die to black screen, then its a motherboard problem.
