4S goes blank, thought battery low, finally got it to work but quits on its own. Any ideas?

I need some ideas. 4S turns on/off at random. If I hold on button down it reloads which seems to have stopped working. I plugged it into computer and am at the point of reloading software. I have iPad and ICloud, will I loose all of my information if I download?

Hello Dobby554,
I would be concerned too if my iPhone was shutting down unexpectedly.  I found an article with some steps to take when you encounter an issue like this:
Will not turn on, will not turn on unless connected to power, or unexpected power off
Verify that the Sleep/Wake button functions. If it does not function, inspect it for signs of damage. If the button is damaged or is not functioning when pressed, seek service.
Check if a Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) is activated or there are signs of corrosion. Learn about LCIs and corrosion.
Connect the iPhone to the iPhone's USB power adapter and let it charge for at least ten minutes.
After at least 15 minutes, if:
The home screen appears: The iPhone should be working. Update to the latest version of iOS if necessary. Continue charging it until it is completely charged and you see this battery icon in the upper-right corner of the screen . Then unplug the phone from power. If it immediately turns off, seek service.
The low-battery image appears, even after the phone has charged for at least 20 minutes: See "iPhone displays the low-battery image and is unresponsive" symptom in this article.
Something other than the Home screen or Low Battery image appears, continue with this article for further troubleshooting steps.
If the iPhone did not turn on, reset it while connected to the iPhone USB power adapter.
If the display turns on, go to step 4.
If the display remains black, go to next step.
Connect the iPhone to a computer and open iTunes. If iTunes recognizes the iPhone and indicates that it is in recovery mode, attempt to restore the iPhone. If the iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or if you have difficulties in restoring the iPhone, see this article for further assistance.
If restoring the iPhone resolved the issue, go to step 4. If restoring the iPhone did not solve the issue, seek service.
You can find the full article here:

You also mentioned that you were not sure if the data will be lost if you restore your iPhone.  You will need to backup your data before you restore your device so that you can restore the backup:
You can find steps for backing up and restoring your iPhone in the following links:

    i hooked up mine airport and finally got it to work but every once in a while my web browser gets stuck.  how di fi?

    Wow that was really quick, thank you so much.  Im not sure at all which version it was because i said it was around 4 years ago he bought it.  I know it isn't under his username, since he's a PC person (ugh) so i know its probably registered to one of our actual names.  isn't there some way to look it up since we did register it, because I'm not even sure where the disks are from when we bought it (we've moved a lot and also have two storage lockers, i know i would have kept it with other disks) but my cd rom drive is actually broken on my computer as well ( i think it got stepped on and is now squished and won't eject or run disks.)
    So is there anyway they can look up that its registered to one of our names since we did register it when we bought and installed it, or do i really have to find the disk with some sort of proof of purchase (i know there would be no receipt after all this time)
    either way, ill do what you suggested to the best of my abilities and thank you so much for answering my questions, i can't even open the program as its incompatible and find out the info from that) so I'm in a bit of a pickle and your response was so thorough and it didn't seem to be posted long enough to even write a well researched response, thanks, all the best,

  • I have recently purchased finale 2011, and it installs, but will not run?  Any idea what the problem is?

    I have recently purchased the finale 2011 music program, and it installs without any problems, but will not run when I try to start up the program.  It acts like it is going to start, but stops when loading the plugins.  I have been talking with Finale tech support for three days, and they are coming up empty, but they are still trying.  Any ideas what the problem might be?

    Try booting in Safe Mode (hold the shift key while booting until the grey progress bar appears).

    I suggest testing the memory.  The specifications say that there is 1x2 GB and 1x4 GB (= 6 GB).  Remove all of the memory and replace each module one at a time and boot.  The single module should be installed in the slot nearest to the Processor.

  • TS1591 i just got an ihome system and had trouble with it connecting to my iPhone.  I finally got it to work and now my itunes doesn't recognize my phone.  My software is up to date on both my Mac and my iPhone and I have shut everything down and restarte

    i just got an ihome system and had trouble with it connecting to my iPhone.  I finally got it to work and now my itunes doesn't recognize my phone.  My software is up to date on both my Mac and my iPhone and I have shut everything down and restarted.  Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Let's try a standalone Apple Mobile Device Support install. It still might not install, but fingers crossed any error messages will give us a better idea of the underlying cause of why it's not installing under normal conditions.
    Download and save a copy of the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe) installer file to your hard drive:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    Download and install the free trial version of WinRAR:
    http://www.rarlab.com/
    Right-click the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe), and select "Extract to iTunesSetup" (or "Extract to iTunes64Setup"). WinRAR will expand the contents of the file into a folder called "iTunesSetup" (or "iTunes64Setup").
    Go into the folder and doubleclick the AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi (or AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi) to do a standalone AMDS install.
    (If it offers you the choice to remove or repair, choose "Remove", and if the uninstall goes through successfully, see if you can reinstall by doubleclicking the AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi again.)
    Does it install (or uninstall and then reinstall) properly for you? If so, can you get a normal iTunes install to go through properly now?
    If instead you get an error message during the install (or uninstall), let us know what it says. (Precise text, please.)

  • TS3899 iphone 4 mail --blank screen like it's stuck.  i can see the "pad/pencil" in the lower right screen to start a new email, but that's all.  any ideas? thanks!

    on my iPhone 4, I can't get mail.  THere is a blank screen, like it's stuck.  I can see the "pad/pencil" in the lower right corner to start a new message, but that's it.
    Any ideas?

    Try a reset: Simultaneously hold down the Home and On buttons until the device shuts down. Ignore the off slider if it appears. Once shut down is complete, if it doesn't restart on it own, turn the device back on using the On button. In some cases it also helps to double click the Home button and close all apps from the tray before doing the reset.
    Try deleting and re-adding the account to the Phone.

    Since you said the computer had seen an upgrade in OS X, the last possible
    version and most likely installed would have been from a Leopard 10.5 DVD
    retail install disc; so if you have one of those, that would do the job...
    IF image of the retail box does not appear below, the cover was all black w/
    a black X, and a purple swirl behind it of a galaxy. The label would have a
    number and the 10.5 system identifier. It would not be a gray label disc.
    https://www.apple.com/support/leopard/
    Of course to call Apple as recommended by Klaus is way to see about getting
    the disc set for the model, and would be a fair part number to include with it
    if available. Any installed OS X should (where applicable) have the DVD, too.
    The Disc is the proof of license; and unless a 'family pack', one install per DVD.
    There may be a generic white label 'replacement 10.5 DVD' from Apple support
    as had been noted by a few ASC discussion participants, that was for any PPC
    mac that could run or be upgraded to Leopard 10.5. A full install disc of the OS X.
    This was available for a time, for a reasonable fee. Also, a more rare DVD version
    I have, that is a full installer on bootable DVD, says 'drop in' 10.5. and did not
    require an older OS X to be installed & running prior to using that to upgrade. Do
    not plan on finding one of those, but I have the actual rare disc at my Mac, now.
    {Also have an as-new retail boxed set, bought from a moving sale, cost me $10.}
    In any event...
    Good luck & happy computing!

  • Audigy 2 ZS, Vista x64: Finally got bass redirection working!

    =Audigy 2 ZS, Vista x64: Finally got bass redirection working!B Hey guys,
    I have hooked a Teufel Concept G to my Audigy 2 ZS. The Speakers do not have internal cross mix, so unless the sound card provides a bass signal there will be NO bass at all. This has not been a problem under linux, since it automatically configures the sound card to send out bass, but very frustrating in Windows Vista x64. GTA4 is no fun without bass ;-)
    After endless searching and messing with different drivers (breaking the whole vista sound system) I coincidently got bass redirection (and CMSS2 apparently) working today.
    These are the steps I took:
    . Fresh install of Windows Vista x64
    2. Installation of Audigy 2 drivers provided by WindowsUpdate, did not download from Creative Labs
    3. Use an old CtPanel-App which actually could activate bass redirection and CMSS2?
    I uploaded the App:?
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=L6J0ZJVA
    If you start the App it will take ages until it pops up, but then it works just fine. Feedback appreciated!
    regards
    Tiedemate?

    I also have the same problem, sound stop working after getting SP2, I updated vista to SP2 because I want to update to windows 7, with win 7 I have try all the drivers without success I still have no sound and with some drivers I get a blue screen. After 2 restarts windows 7 ask me to fix the problem with restore and vola everything works ok but no sound.

    YOu need to be clear about the products you are using, so we can help you. In particular there is no trial of Adobe Reader, it is free and keeps running. Sounds like you are using some versions of Acrobat - which?
    YOu must properly uninstall the trial, don't just delete files or you may get a mess impossible to recover.

  • Almost got VPN to work, but Auth failing?

    Hi,
    I almost got VPN to work, but I have one last error. Here is, what I did so far:
    1.) Configured VPN via Server app
    2.) Enabled PPTP like described in Apple support doc
    3.) VPN Server is reachable within my home network
    4.) VPN Server is reachable from outside my home network
    I'd be more than happy if anyone could provide me with some hints on how to fix either of the following two errors
    When I try to connect via L2TP (From in- or outside the network), I get the following error:
    Aug 29 22:42:17 server racoon[164]: Connecting.

    However, when I try to connect via PPTP (no matter if from in- or outside my network), I see the following error:
    Aug 29 22:27:18 server pppd[16843]: The remote system is required to authenticate itself
    Aug 29 22:27:18 server pppd[16843]: but I couldn't find any suitable secret (password) for it to use to do so.
    Aug 29 22:27:18 server vpnd[16413]:    --> Client with address = 192.168.1.226 has hungup

    I have not yet tried the VPN server in Lion, but I would normally associate IKE traffic with L2TP style VPN connections and not PPTP connections. This might indicate the remote client is trying to make an L2TP connection and you have not yet setup that properly with the same shared secret password at both ends (this different the actual users login password).
    Or of course you can correct the remote client and set it to use PPTP.

    Hello, after months of trying i finally got my self a product recovery CD
    https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
    I hope this was the right place to get one, as it was the only one i could find. Anyway i as far as i know i have keep pressing f10 when i turn the laptop on, im sure i pressed f10 before. However when i press F10 now i get something completely different.
    Edit windows options for: boot micosoft windows vista
    path: windows/system/windows.exe
    partition 2
    hard disk: 48623b6e
    [ /NOEXECUTE =option
    This is what i get, so how do i use the CD and wipe my hard drive like i have before?

    Ok i acually got a hold of there email address and i said it had no data on it. They hadn't even so much sent me a reply since then, until now. I got an Toshiba Shop order confirmation email. On it says;
    Thank you very much for placing an order at the Toshiba Europe Backup Media Online Shop powered by arvato digital services.
    We have received your order and it is currently being examined and processed.
    As soon as your order is dispatched, you will receive confirmation via e-mail which you can then use to view the delivery status of
    your order online.
    It says the Reference ID is 2010033376-R where as before it was just 2010033376. Under items ordered it says that that i have ordered a recovery CD but the cost is 0.00 GBP. It also says that the order date was the 13.8.2009 which is today.
    My point is, is this there reponse? why haven't they asked me to send it back or sent me an email with instructions? because so far they have completely blanked me and i have no idea what to do. Do i send them a letter? do i just send the thing back to them without any instructions?
    *EDIT* LOL i looked in my junk emails and found an email from them there, they sent me a free copy WOOT its all coming up good :D

    Boy, I sure am glad I shelled out $400 for this awesome phone! (sarcasm...heavy sarcasm)
