No Power, No Charging, No iTunes
Hi everyone, I need some help please with this iPhone
It's the 3GS 16GB, it does not power up, and does not charge, and it is not recognised in iTunes, it is basically dead!
this has happened after a cheap copy chinese wall charger was used to charge the phone, this is 100% sure because it has done the same to my wife's iphone!!
I have tried to press and hold home and power button, also tried, holding the home button and connect to iTunes, but Nothing!!
Anyway, I have opened it up, dismantled it, tested the battery with a voltmeter and it shows 0.12V, a good battery should show 3.7V
So I have bought a new battery and I have tested it before fitting, and it showed 3.7V on the voltmeter,
After fitting the new battery, the iPhone switched ON, battery showing 40%, but it still does not charge and is not recognised in iTunes, also, the slide button on the screen does not work, so I can't get to Home screen.
After 1 hour, same problem, iPhone does not switch on, does not charge, opened it again, tested the new battery and it shows 0.14V, so it is drained!!
Can someone point me in the right direction please?
What should I do next?
Thanks in advance
karim, since you have replaced the battery and the dock connector and hoping you did a flawless job on it, check the fuses and see what you get. The "slide button" could be totally different issue. Possibly need to reset the flex cable and/or a new digitizer. Just as an update, I posted another one of my pic's for fuse location left is 3G right is 3GS. Dimensions are 3GS fuse is 2mm x 1.20mm and the 3G one is 1mm x 0.30mm approximately. This information is from my notepad and not sure where I got it from, but I do believe it is from one of the forums. So I would like to give credit to the anonymous author ;-) Based on these specs the appropriate part number (Littelfuse Inc) seems to be 0435002 for 3G and 0467002 for 3GS. A small note about 3GS: the above fuse size is 0603, a little smaller of the original. The correct size is 0805 (2012 Metric), but unfortunately Littelfuse doesn't have this size available. An alternative could be MFU08052 from Vishay/Beyschla
Totally bizarre guys. I GOT IT WORKING!!
Had the exact same issues as everyone else.
Thought it must be the battery. Changed it.
Tried to power on get the apple logo then disappears.
Tried holding power and navigation button screen blinks then nothing.
Tried this several times. Then it occurred to me.
Hold the power button on the apple logo comes up keep holding it till the apple logo goes away. WAIT for a few more seconds...
Now WHILST holding the power button STILL press and hold the navigation button and keep holding it.
It will then showup the apple logo again keep holding it....
The screen goes blank (it does not blink)
Then the connect to itunes screen comes up and its business as usual restore method.
Hope this helps people.
