From what I've heard (you can search "error 23" on these forums) it points to a logic board issue. From what all the posters have said, a reset doesn't work, so if it's still under warranty, get apple to give you a new logicboard.

I found the solution in my case

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My 3g iPhone would not come on unless plugged in to a computer and only gave the apple screen when it was. I was getting the code 23 in both recovery and DFU mode. I tried multiple computers and operating systems and still got the error. If i had thought about it unstead of being stressed I would have figured out the solution much faster.

Code 23 is an error connecting to Itunes so the best way is to narrow down what coule be causing the problem.

#1 Itunes corrupt software

#2 Corrupt USB drivers or a bad usb port.

#3 A bad iPhone usb cable

#4 A bad data port on the iPhone the cable was connecting to (This was my problem).

I also replaced the battery when I broke it down this far and I doubt this was part of the problem but, when I did replace it and the data port everything was fine again.

I tried many different things and started to catch on when using iTunnel and winscp and it would lose connection.

I wish you all the best of luck finding the answer to your problem and hope this helps someone else out there.

the reason for error 23 is a battery problem usually because the battery over heats itself causing your iphone to shut down in order to cool off and it wont turn on because you must scan the battery and let your computer recognize it again... your welcome: )

I had a strange method of Fixing the 23 Error on my 3G, It suffered a power surge, so I tried various methods of trying to fix it or how to find what was wrong with it. In the end, I got bored and went and Jailbroke it with the Latest Redsn0w (0.9.14b2), and it went through the process smoothly and then went out of the recovery loop it was in and straight into the Homescreen! No idea how this fixed it. It just did :P. Anyway, if you're desperate for a fix, give this a go :)
