Phone stuck in bootloop,

I have a customer's phone and the device keeps flashing the apple logo. I've tried to enter recovery mode but its unresponsive. I've tried replacing the battery but either the phone wont turn on or the problem continues.

To be clear, the apple logo shows up for 3 to 5 seconds then will turn off for another 3 to 5 seconds then repeats. When i connect the phone to the computer it isnt recognized. Anyone have any leads?

Is this a good question?

Sounds like a battery issue to me. The logic board is fine, but newer iPhones won't boot, if there's no battery power connected, even when the Lightning dock is. Watch out, keep playing that way, and you'll fry the u2ic

I tried different batteries. 6 to be exact. 4 kept the bootloop going and 2 just flat out didnt work. I thought it was a batter issue too but it doesnt solve the problem.


Have you tried if that doesn't work, you can try dfu restore


Tried, but unresponsive.


Then you'll have to put it into dfu and restore the phone to a backup
