iPhone 6 Blank Screen & iTunes Error (40)

My iPhone 6 turned blank out of nowhere and now all I see is a black lit up screen. When I plug it into iTunes, it shows error 40 as I restore. The Apple logo and the bar shows when I restore but then error 40 shows up and I'm now stuck. I don't understand what is happening. Do I need to change my LCD display? Please help me.

Is this a good question?

That Error number belongs to a list of Hardware Related issues. from what ive seen when this error occures there is a issue with the memory (storage) chip. your best bet is to contact apple as this is something that would fall under a manufactures warranty. Calling apple may only be helpful if you purchased your phone within the last year, but it doesn't hurt to try if its no longer in warranty.

I gave in my iPhone to T-Mobile. It still had a warranty and I was able to get another one. Calling Apple never helps, from experience. They'll always tell me to buy a new phone. I went there before to fix my iPhone 5S's battery, after it started growing, and they told me to buy a new one

Glad to hear you received a replacement. If you are near a apple store you can always show up in person if you have any issues with your apple products.

Try retore under DFU mode. Please note that this is not the same as recovery mode restore or upgrade.

I fixed this issue by using a heat gun and holding over the hard drive till I saw the flux boil, then restored it and it works just fine now

Tried that, the apple logo showed up and it didn't restore. I got the same error 40. Also thanks for taking the time to answer :)

iPhones don't have hard drives. Also, consumers don't understand the delicacies of doing a "fix" like this, so I suggest a clarification so people can benefit from your post.

You can hard restart your iPhone to have a try.

if it still doesn't work, and have no idea about what's happening, you can come to Apple store for help.
