My iPhone4 won't turn on even after being charged for 1 hour and when I plug it into my computer nothing happens

My iPhone4 won't turn on even after being charged for 1 hour and when I plug it into my computer nothing happens. PLEASE HELP

I have a similar (if not the exact same) problem! Here are some more details if they are helpful.
My iPhone 4 died earlier today and will not turn back on. It seemed that the battery died while it was not in use. I attempted to charge it on one charging cord in multiple wall outlets and none worked. Assuming it was a malfunction in the cord, I took my phone home to try charging it there.
Again, I attempted charging it in multiple outlets with a different cord than previously used. None of these seemed to work, though they would flash the Connect to Power screen for a brief moment before returning to a black screen. I assumed that my phone was simply so depleted of battery that it needed a long charge.
I charged it for 30+ minutes without any success, then attempted to charge it through my MacBook instead of through a wall outlet. iTunes did not even recognize that my phone plugged in (and still hasn't). I've attempted charging it for an extended period of time (1+ hour) with no luck. Sometimes when I press the Power button it will flash the Connect to Power screen once more before returning to black.
The Apple logo never appears, nor does any apparent progress on charging. I have attempted holding down the Power and Home buttons simultaneously for 10 - 30 second increments. Still no luck. There is no reason anything should be happening with this phone that I can identify.
I have no warranty and just recently replaced my previous phone which had had similar problems before completely crashing. This is a phone new to me that was previously used but in almost new conditions and factory reset by Apple prior to my purchase.
Does this mean that my phone battery is dead?
Is there anything else I can do??

    You do have iTunes 10.7 or later on the computer, right?
    See:
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    I would start with
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    or
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP

    Hi Gammer576775!
    Here is an article that will help you troubleshoot this issue with your iPod touch:
    iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2771
    Will not power 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.
    Connect the iPod touch to an Apple USB power adapter and let it charge for at least ten minutes.
    After at least 15 minutes, if the display turns on and…
    The home screen appears, the device 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 disconnect the device from power. If it immediately turns off, seek service.
    The low-battery image appears even after the iPod touch has charged for at least 20 minutes: See the "iPod touch 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 iPod touch did not turn on, reset it while connected to an Apple USB power adapter. If the display turns on, go to step 4.If the display remains black, go to the next step.
    Restore the device. Connect it to a computer and open iTunes. If iTunes recognizes it and indicates that it is in recovery mode, attempt to restore the iPod touch. If the device doesn't appear in iTunes or if you have difficulties in restoring it, see this article for further assistance.
    If restoring the iPod touch resolved the issue, go to step 4. If restoring it did not solve the issue, seek service.
    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities!
    Cheers,

  • IPad Air won't turn on even after fully charging overnight and won't reset using the power and home button.

    I have tried charging the ipad over night and no matter what I do it won't turn on. I did try plugging it into my computer and itunes recognized it once, but I wasn't able to restore it. Please help. It's only 3 months past warranty.

    If you have owned the device, as in purchased from Apple, less than a year then there will be no charge to repair, or most likely, replace the device. If you have had the device more than a year you will be charged an out of warranty cost for replacement ($219 I think) and that is much cheaper than a new device. If you have Applecare+ then you have an additional year of coverage and the replacement will be $49 or $79 depending on when you got the Applecare.

  • My iPhone 4 won't turn on after being charged for hours?!?

    My iphone 4 is 3 years old and it has completely died. I left in to charge for 5 hours and it still wouldn't turn on! The sign comes up on the screen to say it's charging but it's not.

    Aand if what razmee209 gave you does not help, then make an appointment at the Genius Bar of the nearest Apple Store to have the hardware checked. Could be the battery is failing.

  • IPod mini battery shows empty even after it charged for hours, but works?

    i'm new to this, i borrowed someone's iPod mini and when battery ran out i put it to charge to my new macbook, charged for a few hours, lightning bolt showed all the while even if sometimes the indicator showed full and other times it showed that it was charging. now that i've disconnected it, it shows empty but it still works, can anyone help?
    I read here http://www.vsa.cape.com/~danh/ipod.htm that this could happen, that the battery indicator could start showing full after 20 minutes... should i start panicking or not?

  • Just updated my iphone to ios6 and when i plug it into my computer it won't show up in itunes???

    I have just updated my itunes as well

    Have you got the latest version of itunes?  I assume you have because you say you have iOS 6.  Try a different cable or a different USB port so if that helps

  • IPOD WON'T TURN ON EVEN AFTER TRYING TO RESET IT

    PLS. HELP! MY IPOD WITH VIDEO WON'T TURN ON EVEN AFTER TRYING TO RESET IT. THE BATTERY IS FULL. IT WILL JUST TURN ON AFTER 24HRS. WHEN THE BATTERY IS DRAINED EVEN WITHOUT USING IT BECAUSE IT IS IN FROZEN STATE. FOR INSTANCE AFTER DISCONNECTING FROM THE COMPUTER SAFELY AFTER CHARGING IT I KEPT IT OPEN BUT WHEN IT TURNED OFF AUTOMATICALLY IT WILL NOT TURN ON.

    Ok well, if you do not have the Ipod starter disk, you can’t do very much to save it anymore. It is completely gone.
    At this point I would recommend you calling Apple and setting up a repair. I would suggest you buy their warrantee plan, ($50 and good from 2 years) and it starts as soon as you buy the plan, NOT when you got your Ipod. The reason I would suggest that is, because if they deny your problem (like they did to me 5 time before finally replacing mine) it will save you a LOT of money. There may also be further issues as well with your Ipod.
    Apples SoS number is:
    1-800-767-2775
    Open 6am-6pm EST.
    They might even have a few ideas on how to fix it as well!
    As for “Viruses” I would highly doubt it. Viruses are programs designed to destroy certain parts of computer. Such as, a virus that destroys windows computer, does not do anything to Mac computer. It does not have the same components. The same thing goes for Ipod, PSP, etc. Files my contain viruses in them, but it would not effect the product in most cases. Only if you transfer the file on it to another computer, could it do anything.
    Your problem is, most likely your ipod just broke. Or should I say, just stopped working. Ipod’s are notorious at doing such things. Apple will take care of it. BUT GET THE EXTENDED WARRANTY! That is the only way to make sure they fix it. It is cheaper than buying a $350-$400 new 60 gig Video.
    Good luck my friend, God Life

  • My iPod is stuck on the Apple logo and won't do anything! It won't turn on, doesn't give me the option to power it off, and to top it all off, it's not being recognized by my computer OR by iTunes when I plug it into my computer.

    So yeah...last night I was checking out my iPod (bored at the in-laws) and all of a sudden the screen went blank and the only thing I can get it to do is have the black screen w/ the white apple logo on it. It won't turn on, doesn't give the the option to power down, it won't charge, AND it's NOT being recognized when I plug it into my computer. Not by iTunes OR my computer. I've tried holding down the top button and the home button at the same time...nothing. And since it's not being recognized on my computer, I cannot restart it or go back to factory settings. Someone please help! I've had it for 18 months so the warranty is no longer valid and I don't know how to fix it. THANK YOU in advance!

    - I would try placing the iPod in recovery mode and then see if iTunes will see the iPod.  try both with the iPod not connected to the computer and with it connect. For recovery mode see:
    iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to update or restore
    - Next see if placing the the iPod in DFU mode will make it visible
