This is how to force restart your device:
Press and hold the power and the home buttons together for around 10 seconds or until the Apple logo appears then wait until your home screen appears.

    Have tried DFU, restore and several re-boots, still has the 'lock' symbol on top of screen and touch screen is not responsive. The volume doesn't work, Silent does, and Sleep does.

My iphone screen is black, no response from touchscreen or home or lock button. When you call the number there is no voulme but to the caller the phone is ringing. Any suggestions what the problem m

first thing I'd have you do is plug it in and see if you get a charging display on the screen. If you still don't see anything at all hold the home button and sleep/wake button for about 20 seconds. Many times this is all it takes. If it is just a software issue you should see the screen go white with a black apple. There was an issue with the 4 in the past (mine had this as well) where at 50% charge it locked completely. This did the trick. Let me know if this doesn't work and I'll give you some more possible steps. Where did you get the phone and what carrier?

Touchpad stopped working

Use an external mouse to see what the device manager says about the touchpad. The device manager is in the control panel OR you can click start and type DEVMGMT.MSC and hit enter. Look for any ! or ? or X next to anything on the list.

I just replaced my lcd on my iphone 3G. It was working fine until I dropped it. Now the screen is black. I can hear it charge and get incoming e-mails but I can't see anything. Could it be my lcd again?

Hi,from the problem you are experiencing it's obvious that the problem is from the lcd screen,the shock it sustained when it dropped is responsible for the damage on the lcd screen again.
The solution is to replace the lcd screen but you have to be more careful with the phone,the iphone is a very fragile phone which should be handled with extra care,if the screen is replaced and you mistakenly drop it again,i'm sorry,you will have no choice but to keep replacing the screen,which is not good enough for you economically and also for the efficiency of the pone.

Thanks and take care

Iphone 3G screen not working after dropping. Not

It sounds like you have some internal screen damage, your LCD may be damaged or your digitizer. A professional will need to take your phone apart and determine the cause.

The bottom part of my iPhone touchpad is not responding to touch

The touch on the screen works as a seperate component from the screen itself. Either the lower portion is damaged and has to be replaced, or it is wet and can't sence touch as a result. The one may get better in time if the components don't corrode, the other is probably not resolvable...

You have been dropping your phone so hard that the body cracked. With your second dropping, the circuits may have got disconnected. Take it to your service centre to get it going.
