I would try resetting the iPhone, hold the power and home keys at the same time for 10 seconds, until the apple logo flashes. It should reset the iPhone, then power back on. See if that works!

Turn UP brightness


Hi Michele,
lets suppose that your iPhone is a 3gs or 3g. That means that u can not turn up brightness if u haven't first unlock your iPhone because that can happen only with ios 7. A 3g-3gs can only be updated with-until ios 6.1... .1) So go to a place with no day light. or just with low light. If your iPhone hasn't any problem then you will be able to unlock and turn brightness on (Slide to unlock - Settings - Wallpapers and Brightness).
2) Check if the Battery is empty, hold down the Power Button for some seconds until it shows the sign for charging (i think is a battery sign).
3) If it is not happening any of the above then you have to reset your iPhone. Just connect it to your PC or iMAc and open iTunes. There you can see if your phone can be found from iTunes. If it can be found this is good news. It does n't have any damage. So, in iTunes you can find the function so as to reset it. Reset means your data will be erased and the settings will be set to default. So first do a back up and also save your contacts in outlook.
4) IF your IPhone is 4or 4s or 5,5c 5s go as above in a place with no day light or low light and just drag from upwards so as show the external menu of ios 7. There you can see the brightness setting. Good Luck. Hope it helps

Barely see screen iphone


Sounds like the CFL that lights up the screen has gone out. Take your phone to a repair shop and have the screen replaced. Should be fairly cheap for a 3GS

Iphone 3gs, had some water on the screen (not much), i checked it and everything was fine,,, includeing the brightness, then i put it down and didnt think about it,, went back late and the brightness wont...


your screen have been affected with water. When you accidentally drop your phone in water, DO NOT turn the phone on yet instead put the phone in a bag of rice, the rice helps to seep water. Since you turned on the phone already, there is nothing to do but get the phone repaired or replaced.

My iphone screen light not working but everything else still working fine


phone 3gs has additional accessiblity functions like ‘voice over’
This function gives u addtional use of iphone with tapping by using two and three fingers
Tap three fingers three times on your iphone screen. It will deactivate the screen curtain and your screen will display as usual.
If not resolved try resetting your iphone by holding down home and sleep/wake button for 10 seconds..
if still not resolved restore your iphone using itunes…..before restoring ALWAYS make a backup. If these steps do not resolve the issue, there is a good chance that the backlight has go out. I hope this helps you! Good luck and please vote if this helps.

My Iphone 3Gs just went dead.


A lot of these phones get stuck. Reset by using the home and on off buttons. Hold home and on off for 30 seconds then let go of home while connected to computer. Leave connected to computer and restart computer. Leave connected to computer for awhile. Mine came back after about six hours. I think it has something with the RAM and the motherboard powering down. If that doesn't work try putting phone in restore mode and restore.
