    My phone battery was low so I plug it into my computer. When I looked at the phone several minutes later it has the apple logo on screen. I unplugged the phone and pushed the on button and the home button at the same time to get the logo to go away. The phone powered up so I plugged it back in to my computer and it showed that it was charging. The next time I looked at the phone it had a blank/black screen and I can not get it to power on.

Some times, the charging cable from the laptop will not charge a fully depleted battery. If you have not already done so, try charging it using the wall charger that came with the phone.

Hope this works!

    If after charging your iPhone, you still cannot get it to come on, Hold down the Power Button (Located on the top and right of the phone) and the "Home" button (Round button at bottom center of screen) for just over 10 seconds. They must BOTH be held at the same time. This will boot your phone if it has been turned off completely.

    Let me know if it worked or not. Thank you!

My iPhone 4S won't charge

Do you use this cable on other products? If not first suspect cable.
You can wiggle near the ends of the cable and see if you get any change in charging status.
Also when the iPhone battery is so depleted it may take a few minutes before you get any indication the charger is connected.
the ? symbol Should then display and charging should follow.

How can i replace the battery in my iphone 4s?

The big thing to remember is not to get cheap discount batteries when you buy a replacement. Only use OEM because of the risk of fire. There are instructions for the process here:

My phone doesnt turn on :(( what can i do????

Hello and thank you for visiting Fixya Support, I will be glad to assist you.

With an iPhone not turning on, it could mean that its charge has fully depleted and would need to be connected via USB to the a computer with iTunes. You would need to allow the iPhone to remain connected for approximately 10 mins in order to start effectively charging

The other option would be to perform a reset to reboot the iPhone. To perform this action, press the Sleep and the Home buttons for approximately 10 seconds. This will allow your iPhone to restart to
it main screen. This will be evident by a black screen followed by a white Apple icon appearing on the screen shortly after the reboot.

If either one of these processes don't work, please feel free to reply back and let me know.

I want to know how to completely deplete the battery before charging it again

Use your cell as long as its battery depletes completely itself or play Music, Games or call in order to deplete your battery completely.
When your cell gives "Empty Battery" or "Low battery" type warning for three times and turns off itself your cell's battery is empty then. Recharge it till its battery full to have more talk time then usually you have.

Iphone is not powering-on. Tried recharging.

Have you charged your battery for 24 hrs if not done so do it now. Measure the output of the battery if the battery output is ok then check the connection on phone where battery is connected and scrap a bit with screw driver. it might possibly have some sort of plastic quoting check both the battery and mobile points for any such quotings.

Your battery is depleted beyond a chargable state. You have to send the phone over to apple to replace it. If the phone is less than a year this is counted under the comprehensive warranty and you wont be charged for the repair.
