iPhone won't charge and therefore turn on
Couple days ago I plugged my iPhone in to charge over night, it was close to running out of juice but it held out the day.
The charging screen came on as expected, no problems there. When I woke up the iPhone was off but still plugged, I tried turning it back on think it might of crashed over night but it just showed the apple boot logo for around 5 seconds and switched (obvious dead battery).
This didn't make sense, so I unplugged and plugged the cable back in to see what was going on. Same thing, on for 5ish seconds and off, but it's still detecting the cable. Maybe the plug is bad? Tried plugging into a USB port, same again. Not the plug, maybe the cable? Replaced the cable and the problem persists.
So I'm thinking it must be the dock connector or maybe the battery (but it's still trying to boot up, so there must be a little juice and therefore a working battery).
What do you guys think?
Well, I hope you manage to save it as I saved mine.
It now works fine.
What about you officially loving me…
Well, I must say that I am very touched and impressed, but I'm quite happily married.
Your hair is slightly too short, the beard should be shaved (as far as I am concerned)
and who knows, may be in my next life, I might be gay, but I'm not for the time being.
Thanks anyway. I do love U2.
As I previously wrote, changing the battery actually didn´t solve the problem.
Worse, after managing to set the iPhone i recovery mode (10 seconds pressing down both the Home and Power buttons, than releasing only the Power button during 10 more seconds) I couldn´t restore the firmware with iTunes on my MacBookPro (iTunes 9.1.1).
I was ready to say Farewell to my iPhone and buy a new one...
But I eventually tried to restore it with a PC windows XP and iTunes 9.1.1 and it managed to "save" my Precious :-)
Although I had to upgrade it to 3.1.3
Since, I jailbroke it with Spirit as I don´t need to unlock the carrier (allready officially unlocked)
I hope you also manage to have an happy ending.
its just your battery nOt getting enough charge..
when you charge a iphone with the dead battery SYMBOL
IT BOOTS ITSELF UP INTO APPLE AND THEN THE BATTERY DIES AGAIN..
TRY CHARGING THE BATTERY IN ANOTHER IPHONE..OR TRY PRESSING BOTH BUTTONS TILL THE SCREEN GOES BLANK
WHILE THE CHARGER IS STILL IN THE PHONE..THAT LITTLE DEAD BATTERY SYBOL IS USING MORE THAN WHAT YOU ARE CHARGING SO ITS JUST NOT GETTING ANY CHARGE..ALL THE POWER IS BEING USED ON THAT SYMBOL...GET IT??
NO THANK ME LATER///
I had the same problem! Stuck on the charging screen for hours (the black one with the empty battery and the lightning) with the power usb plugged in.
I followed the advice of cleaning the dock connector with a toothbrush....t
