HT201263 iphone 4 will not turn on for anything. touching the home screen and lock screen still doesnt turn it on. what should i do

my iphone 4 was working fine yesterday and last night it just started cutting off and on by its self and now it doesnt want to come on at all. what should i do?

Try:                                               
- iOS: Not responding or does not turn on           
- Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

- If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
- Try another cable              
- Try on another computer                                                       
- If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem. Take it apart and verify that you reassembled it correctly. Next take it to someone with more experience.

  • TS1398 3GS IPhone will not recognize a Wi-Fi connection at home or work.  We have tried turning it on/off as well as turning airplane mode to on while turning it off then back on again.  My 3GS IPhone is working fine with our router at home.  Thanks

    Can also try powering off the home router, then the phone, and then power up the router wait for the signal and then power up the phone and see if he can connect.

  • IPhone 4 blacks out, could not work with just pressing the home button and lock screen button, only worked when I plugged it in the charger

    My iPhone 4 started to blackout out of nowhere and it wont work only until I plugged my phone into the charger. It has been going on for several times in a day, where it just randomly blacks out. Do anyone know what is the problem and how do I exactly fix this? thanks

  • My iPod Touvh 4th Generation won't turn on. It will not charge even after I used a few chargers and will not connect to a computer. The Home button is broken and I don't know if the Lock/Sleep button is now broken or stuck as well. What should I do?

    My iPod Touvh 4th Generation won't turn on. It will not charge even after I used a few chargers and will not connect to a computer. The Home button is broken and I don't know if the Lock/Sleep button is now broken or stuck as well. I believe there may be a problem with the battery or the backlight. I've had my screen replaced once by some stooges. What should I do?

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    When it  says place the iPod in recoverymode use one of these programs.

    Hey there mello12,
    It sounds like you are not able to turn on your phone. You should use these steps in the following article to help resolve it, or setup service if needed:
    iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3281
    Let it charge for at least twenty minutes, then see if it starts normally.
    If there is no image on the screen, press the Sleep/Wake button to attempt to wake the device.
    If the screen displays a red battery icon, continue charging the device until the battery is fully charged. Learn more about charging iPhone and iPod touch, or iPad.
    If the above steps do not resolve the issue, or the if the screen remains black or shows a persistent Apple logo, try restoring with iTunes:
    Connect the device to your computer and open iTunes.
    If the device appears in iTunes, select and click Restore on the Summary pane. Learn more aboutrestoring iOS software.
    If the device doesn't appear in iTunes, try to force the device into recovery mode, and then restore it.
    If the above steps do not resolve the issue, contact Apple.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Take care,
    Sterling

  • My iphone 4s' screen is black, but it's still on and charging. I broke my lock screen button so I am unable to turn it off using the home button and lock button. Is there any other way my phone can restart or turn off ? Is my phone broken for sure?

    Most intelligent people would not store such sensitive data on a device that could so easily be lost, stolen, or damaged.  Even if they chose to do so, they would use the device as designed and regularly sync and backup that device as described in the User's Guide.
    Have you done so?  If you have, all of the data is either in iCloud or iTunes on your computer.  Replace the device and restore the new iDevice with the backup of the old one.

    Try force-closing the Music app: from the home screen, double-tap the home button, locate Music in the list at the bottom, tap and hold it until it wiggles, tap to close it, tap the home button again, then try to play your music again.

    I get as far as what appears to be restoring my phone then when the software has downloaded, iTunes insists on my phone accepting it's access. I had carried out this action two weeks ago when I had the same issue on my phone and managed to restore it successfully, but it isn't happening now. I have updated iTunes to the latest version since the last time, and also my iPhone to the latest version.  I have had endless trouble with this phone so having gone through all the steps suggested in various forums it is clear that it is an issue with the phone, not helped by the recent iOS and iTunes updates with stricter security.

  • My play and skip button will not work on the control center and lock screen

    For the first few days I had iOS 7, everything worked fine. Now the Control Center and lock screen will not play, pause, or skip through my music or iTunes Radio. It works fine within music but I would prefer not to have to unlock my phone every time I want to skip a song. Anyone having this issue/know of a way to fix it?

    I didn't have that problem, but I had many others. I've always been a fan of Apple but I'm really disappointed with the latest updates. iOS 7 is full of bugs, the worst being in my music app. It crashes, both in my iPhone 5 and iPad 4, it keeps autosyncings songs from the cloud I don't want (and I can't get them erased), plays a song, but shows a different song, to name just a few... I hope they fix this asap, cause that's really annoying me.

  • Help! After interrupting an installation of a program downloaded from the internet on my mac in a reboot cycle will not start, I've already done the disk check and it's ok and I reinstalled the OS 10.8 Lion

    After interrupting an installation of a program downloaded from the internet on my mac in a reboot cycle will not start, I've already done the disk check and it's ok and I reinstalled the OS 10.8 Lion

    In this case, I think that there's something damaged that can't be fixed just reinstalling OS X.
    If you don't want to lose files, you will have to create a second partition in the hard drive and install OS X there, so you will be able to recover everything you need. Then, you will have to erase the first partition and reinstall OS X. Follow these steps:
    1. Hold Command and R keys while your Mac is starting to start into OS X Recovery, and open Disk Utility.
    2. You can follow the steps of this site to create a second partition > http://pondini.org/OSX/DU3.html
    3. After creating the second partition, close Disk Utility and install OS X on the second partition.
    4. When the installation finishes, open Finder and, in the sidebar, you will see the other partition. Open it and recover the files you need.
    5. After doing that, repeat the step 1.
    6. Select “Macintosh HD” in the sidebar, go to Erase tab and erase the disk.
    7. Close Disk Utility and install OS X on the first partition.
    After doing all of these steps (you will need a lot of time to do this), you can delete the second partition you created and add the size of this partition into the first one > http://pondini.org/OSX/DU4.html
