iPhone 5 in reboot loop, color twitches and unable to restore
Hi, I’m trying to fix my friends phone but it has some for me unfamiliar symptoms.
- The phone is looping in boot, while connected. There is just a logo and no loading bar. The screen lights up and goes dark, and the colours red, blue and green appear cut half in the screen in loop after each other, see attached pictures.
- I can only get any response of the iPhone by putting it in DFU mode. It does not get recognised otherwise.
- In Itunes, when I try to “restore and update” and “waiting for phone” I get after few minutes an message “iphone could not be restored” error 4005.
- At first I suspected the battery in combination with error 4005, I changed the battery and also bought a new lightning cable and let it load over a night. Same error occurs.
I have been looking all over the web for similar cases but haven’t run into any in combination with these color twitches.
Does anybody know what might cause this? Is it hardware related like, broken charge port or logic board? Or is there a way that I can try fix it software related?
I don’t really want to trow any more money towards it before I understand a bit what might cause this problem. Please advice, cheers!
Is this a good question?
