That is similar to what i have wrong with my IPhone 5s. It stays off but once i try to turn it on in all ways it goes to the apple logo screen for 10-20 seconds then turns off. I cant update it, restore it or do anything. It only goes to the apple screen and off. Is there a way to fix it? Or possibly get my pictures off of it. I have important pictures i can't loose.

It is more than likely that you need a new battery :-)

Hi there, try these steps:

Connect the iPhone's USB cable to your computer, but not your iPhone.

Turn your iPhone off. If the phone won't turn off in the traditional manner, just keep holding the buttons until the screen goes dark.

Once you've turned the device off, press the home button on the face of the device and plug in the USB cable to the device's dock connector.

When it turns on, keep pressing the home button until the iTunes logo appears on the screen.

You'll know the phone is now in recovery mode because a window in iTunes will tell you.

You can then start the restore process by clicking the "Restore" button in the iTunes window.

Hope this fixes the issue.

I had the same problem with my iPhone 4. I have tried all options which is available in apple supports communities but that didn't worked. After sometime one of my friend told me that it could be hardware (booting chips or another chips) issue. He suggested me to contact local iPhone repairing center instead iphone authorized service centre b'coz they charge more than local repairing centers. I did exactly as suggested and gave it to the local rep. Centre. Next day They told me the same(chip damage ). They replaced the chip and charged me 2000 Indian rupees now my phone is working well. I would like to inform all of you they charged me more than double amount. So try and negotiate with repairing centre. regards RAKEYSH RAWAT (RR). rawatrakesh59@yahoo.com

i went to the apple store and they said mine was water damaged. to know if it is or not, look in the headphone jack and shine a light down it and see if the bottom is red. do the same to the charger jack. if they are red, water is in your phone, if it is no color, there is no water damage. but since they said mt phone had some damage i decided to still try this. and i worked so even if they tell you you have it, still try everything until you are possitive it wont turn bck on. :)

Hi, I have encountered the same problem. Finally I successfully solve it with FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery.

Try this first:

In most cases, you can solve these problems by putting the phone into recovery mode and restoring it from backup. To do that, follow these instructions:

1. Connect the iPhone's USB cable to your computer, but not your iPhone.

2. Turn your iPhone off. If the phone won't turn off in the traditional manner, just keep holding the buttons until the screen goes dark.

3. Once you've turned the device off, press the home button on the face of the device and plug in the USB cable to the device's dock connector.

4. When it turns on, keep pressing the home button until the iTunes logo appears on the screen.

5. You'll know the phone is now in recovery mode because a window in iTunes will tell you.

6. You can then start the restore process by clicking the "Restore" button in the iTunes window.

Hope it can help you.

Iphones check to see if there are any non apple components after an upgrade. Non OEM batteries are the target. If you have replaced your battery the phone will work fine until you do a software upgrade. When you do the upgrade, shortly after your phone will detect a non OEM battery and shut down completely. You will get one of two responses. A completely dead screen or, when the charger is plugged in, apple logo and nothing else. You can get Itunes to recognise the phone but it will refuse to do a restore.

Replace the battery with an OEM battery and the phone will be back to noemal. Don't we love Apple!

B I just fixed my friend's iphone 4. I have tried 10 times but there was no chance to be successfully restore. Finaly, what am i doing is get a plastic bag, put your iphone into it, and put the plastic bag in the freezer. Make sure there is no water in the plastic bag. After that, just watch your tv, play your game or do anything else for about 1 hour. After that, don't waste your time, don't wait till it's hot, don't wait anything just restore it, and may God bless your iphone. It worked for me, and my friend just speechless because he nearly wanted to waste a lot of money to service his iphone. Good luck with that, hopefully this may be useful. My suggestion, don't use iphone :). Thank you

Now, you can use some software to fix these problem, like stuck on Apple logo, stuck in the Recovery mode or DFU mode etc. And some of them can also recover deleted files.
