Iphone4s just died and won't turn back on, what should I do?

Checking out apps on iPhone 4S and was about 50% battery then it just shuts down. I haven't been able to turn it back on. What should I do?

Have you tried resetting your device by pressing and holding the Home button and power button until the silver apple appears? Put it on the charger for about 10 minutes first.

    If you have done the reset and nothing appears and you are sure it still has a charge and it doesn't turn on, you may request for a replacement if it still covered by the warranty. Cheers!

  • My iPhone 5 just died, and won't turn back on..

    Hard boot doesn't help, could it be the battery that is dead? I had to charge it 5 times a day for some weeks before it died..
    It won't charge, or connect to iTunes, and since it had to be charged 5 times a day for it to make it through ONE day, I'm thinking that it might be that the battery is just 100% dead..
    Could it be something like that?
    I have tried hard Boot by holding the home and powerbutton for 15 sec and more, and tried charging it in the wall for 1 hour and tried again, still nothing..

    Its the integrated charging circuit..
    but before jumping conclusions change the battery..only takes 2 minutes need a pentalobe scredriver for the two bottom screws phillips microdriver and a 10dollar battery, the screwdrivers are like 5 dollars and in some cases they will come with the battery (ebay)!

    Try the suggestions in this Apple document -> Troubleshooting iPhone hardware
    Will not turn on, or will not turn on unless connected to power
    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 the Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) in the headset jack or dock connector is activated or there are signs of corrosion or debris. Learn more about LCIs.
    Connect the iPhone to the iPhone's USB power adapter and let it charge for at least 15 minutes.
    After at least 15 minutes, if:   
    The home screen appears: The iPhone should be working. 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.
    If something other than the Home screen or Low Battery screen appears on the display, continue with this article for further troubleshooting steps.
    If the iPhone did not turn on, try resetting it while connected to the iPhone USB power adapter. To reset, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or the battery symbol appears.   
    If the display turns on, go to step 4.
    If the display remains black, go to next step.
    Restore the iPhone.   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.
    If that doesn't work, have a Genius take a look at it.

  • My iPhone 4 shut down and won't turn on again.What should i do?

    My iPhone 4 shut down and won't turn on again. I tried charging it and do it again...When i charge it , it opens the " Connect to iTunes" , when i switch to the computer to connect it , it doesn't work... It starts to the apple screen , and then just shuts down again. I tried holding the home and sleep/wake button at the same time..I tried everything. What should i do?

    Your iPhone is going back and forth between recovery mode and powering on which is really strange.
    Have you tried a hardware reset while its connected to your computer? This will force it back into recovery mode so that you can restore it. If restoring and setting up as new doesn't help, go ahead and take it to an Apple Store for a replacement

  • Macbook Pro died and won't turn back on

    Hi,
    I have a Macbook Pro 13' (it's about 1.5 years old). I was on it a couple of hours ago when I got the running on reserve battery indicator. Before I could plug the charger in, it died. I have had the charger in for over 2 hours now and it still won't turn on. The green light is on on the charger. When I unplug the charger the first battery strength light flashes on twice but that is it. When it is plugged in the battery strength lights do not go on at all. I have been searching for an answer for over an hour but can't seem to find one. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    It's a possibility, magsafes are known to do all sorts of strange things (I've had tons of replacements), but more than likely it's your battery. Does a friend or family member have another charger you could try? That's how you'll know if it's the battery or charger. If not I would say take it to an apple store to try it out!

  • My iPhone 4 died and won't turn back on?

    Today I was out and had my phone in my bag. It was already 23% when I left the house, and I didn't really look at it while I was out. About two hours later, I think I got a call cause my phone was vibrating, but when I checked, the screen was black and wouldnt show anything??? I figured the battery was dying or something so I just left it alone. Then when I got home, I went to charge it but nothing is happening. It's been charging for like an hour now and nothing has showed up. What can I do? I tried the home+power button but my home button is kinda messed up (I used assistive touch), so I'm not sure if it's even effective. Help please!

    Time for a new phone.
    Christmas is early for you.

  • My iPhone 4 died and won't turn back on. It's been on the charger for 17 hours.

    Last night my phone went completely dead while I was doing something for school. I put it on the charger as soon as I got into the car, maybe 30 minutes after it went dead. It's been charging for 17 hours and still shows an empty battery with a flash underneath.
    I've tried everything. I've attempted a hard reset multiple times, the screen goes black for maybe two seconds and then the empty battery comes back. Tried restarting my computer while my phone was plugged into it. Tried pressing the home button while plugging it into my computer. My computer isn't recognizing it when I plug the phone in.
    I am desperate. I don't have the money to buy a new phone. Please help.
    It hasn't been dropped. No water damage. I've never broken an iPhone before.

    Your only chance is connecting in recovery mode, as explained in this article:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808
    iTunes has to tell you that it found an iPhone in recovery mode, otherwise you can't be sure that you put it into recovery mode.

  • My iPhone 4S battery was on 1% and won't turn back on - what to do?

    And I've already tried holding the home button and the power button for about 10-20 seconds, but it keeps showing the red charging symbol. I've tried three different chargers. I've never had a problem with the battery before, it's always been working perfectly and I rarely use it all up during the day. I always turn it off while I'm at work. I've had the phone since the end of July 2012, so it's not even a year old. I also have a good habit of closing all the apps I'm not using so it won't drain the battery.
    Anyone with a similar problem?
    Edit: Just to be clear: I've tried charging it for at least 6 hours. I turned it in to the store I bought it today for them to have a look at it and decide what my options are. I recently got a new computer and didn't even have time to sync my iPhone with iTunes before this happened. So resetting is apparently not an option either.

    Okay, got my phone back from the store I originally bought it at (the Swedish equivalent to Best Buy), and they had tried charging it with an iPhone-charger with no results. However, when they tested with an off-brand charger, it started working again. I wonder why that is.
    When I got home, it was on 98% and I plugged it in with my regular charger just to see if I would really need to go out of my way to buy a completely different charger. It charged up to 99%, and I then unplugged it. I will wait and see if the problem re-occurs, but as it looks now, I probably won't be needing to get the battery changed nor book an appointment with the Genius Bar I'll check in here again if that were to happen, to give my review of the Genius Bar!
    Thanks for all the help again

  • Phone shut off and won't turn back on. Battery is not dead. What can I do?

    My iphone4 shut off and won't turn back on. The battery is not dead, I tried plugging it in to power and to my computer and connecting to itunes. Nothing works. It is like the phone is just dead. Any ideas?

    Plug iPhone into Wall Charger for 10 minutes, it may turn ON itself. If still nothing, keep on wall charger and Reset, hold both home and power buttons for about 20 seconds until the iPhone begins to start.

    There is a thread or two about the home button and how to fix it at least temporally.  It sounds like some people have found it to be a rather permanent fix.  Do search on something like "Home button won't work".  It has something to do with putting the charging cable into the phone and applying a little extra pressure upward on the key.  Don't take my word for it though look for the thread/s.  You said originally that your "Power" button was broken and the thread I have seen is about the Home Button.

  • My iPhone 3gs just randomly turned off and won't turn back on

    I was just using my phone, and nothing happened. As of lately picture mail, and videos have been sending as a text message to other iPhone users even while connected to wifi. My phone just randomly turned off and won't turn back on. I just got it in July so its not very old and I have the hard protection case on it. Is there any way that I can reset it or something?

    Hold the home and power button down at the same time.
