My iphone 3g stays on the apple logo for about 4 minutes then flashes white and goes back to the apple screen, it repeats untill battery is flat,  every now and then im lucky enough to get it to turn on but not very often and then it freezes and repeats??

hello my name is kirstie, i updated to firmware 4.2.1 .....my iphone 3g stays on the apple logo for about 4 minutes then flashes white and goes back to the apple screen, it repeats untill battery is flat,  every now and then im lucky enough to get it to turn on but not very often and then it freezes and repeats the same problem?? (if i turn the phone off my pressing the two buttons it wont keep rebooting, its only when i leave it after turning it on)
I have reset the phone, full firmware restore, even downgraded back from firmware 4.2.1 to .3.1.3 official by using dfu mode and still doesnt fix.
(i correctly got out of dfu mode after the downgrade)
i can enter dfu mode and recovery, and update through itunes with no problem, but it doesnt fix the problem,
i have searched and found no answer to this problem, every option availible to try that i know of i have tried and failed. i dont care about preserving my content i just want a fix. i have a good understanding how to operate software on a computer and shouldnt be too confused by any advice given, so plz even if the answer is very complex i wish to try anything, please help me to get my iphone working.

Anyone have any suggestions? or is everyone else just as clueless as me !

  • After updating to iOS 8.0.2 my iPhone is stuck in a loop of showing me the loading apple logo for about a minute, then the screen goes blue and the process starts over.

    I can turn the iPhone off by holding down the power button and releasing when i see the blue screen. I have tried to restore the iPhone in iTunes by putting it into recovery mode, but after about 10-20 minutes of it restoring the iPhone suddenly looses connection with the computer and goes back into the loop process. What should i do?

    If you have more than one user account, these instructions must be carried out as an administrator.
    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Enter "BOOT_TIME" (without the quotes) in the search box. Note the timestamps of those log messages, which refer to the times when the system was booted. Now clear the search box and scroll back in the log to the last boot time when you had the problem. Select the messages logged after the boot, during the time something abnormal was happening. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).
    For example, if the problem is a slow startup taking three minutes, post the messages timestamped within three minutes after the boot time, not before. Please include the BOOT_TIME message at the beginning of the log extract.
    If there are runs of repeated messages, post only one example of each. Don’t post many repetitions of the same message.
    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    Still in Console, look under System Diagnostic Reports for crash or panic logs, and post the entire contents of the most recent one, if any. In the interest of privacy, I suggest you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

  • I recently bought the new Iphone 4S on the Bell network.  I subscribe to visual voicemail, and when I get a voicemail I can listen to them but when I go to delete them it freezes the screen for a second or two and goes back to the homescreen.

    I recently bought the new Iphone 4S on the Bell network.  I subscribe to visual voicemail, and when I get a voicemail I can listen to them but when I go to delete them it freezes the screen for a second or two and goes back to the homescreen. Anyone else having this problem?  I've called Belland they're clueless about this, and Apple support doesnt seem to know much about it either.

    I was mislead as well.  It turns out that visual voicemail is only partially supported by Bell.  You can only playback voicemail.  It doesn't show the caller ID either.  You still have to call your VM in order to delete messages (which kinda defeats the purpose).  According to Bell tech support they're "working on it" but I wouldn't hold my breath.

  • Every time i try to send a text from my iphone 4 it cloes out and goes back to the home screen. why?

    So i go to send a text and when i hit send it closes everything and goes back to the home scren. i have restarted it and reset it but nothing works.

    Try restarting your iPhone by holding down the on/off and the home buttons at the same time until you see the Apple logo.

  • Starts to boot, shows Apple logo for 2+ minutes, then starts again

    Yesterday the computer started to boot up as usual with the 'boot chord', Apple logo, then the screen went black, and started over again.  This time it successfully booted and ran normally for the rest of the day.  This morning, it never gets beyond the boot process; i.e. start chord, Apple logo for several minutes, then black screen and the whole process repeats over and over again.  Front panel status LED is on and steady.  I tried 5 different boot disks (internal HD, two external SuperDuper clones, a DiskWarrior DVD and the OSX 10.6 install disk and the results were the same.   It is still under extended warranty, but I can't afford the downtime for Apple to repair it.  Any idea what might be wrong?  Any thing else I might try to get it going again?

    Hopefully  the Time Machine backup is intact and the computer will continue to work with it connected (requires a 3rd party eSATA RAID controller card).  Assuming all the hardware works, I am unclear how best to restore the app's from the TM backup.
    The official way to do a full restore from TM is to boot from an installation DVD and select "Restore from Time Machine" from the Utilities menu. I don't see how that will work if your backup is on a third-party RAID, because the controller requires a driver that isn't on the DVD. That may be why you can't boot from the DVD.
    I think your best bet is to clone the installation disc to a bootable volume and install the RAID driver on it. The volume could be hosted on an external storage device or burned to a DVD. See here for an example of how to do this.

  • Why does my 1st gen iPad always turns itself off and goes back to the screen. Whether I'm reading news, iBooks, etc, suddenly it goes off.

    If that doesn't help, the battery may be dying and need replacement. See here (tap on Battery Replacement): http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=servicefaq&geo=United_States&product=ipad
    Alternately, might consider start saving for a new iPad. The newest iPad 6 should come out in the next few months. When it does, sellers will want to get rid of old inventory with good deals.

  • HT1199 my computer displays grey screen and apple logo for 10 minutes or more during start up and shut down. sometimes it refuses to shut down . this issues started after installing OS lion. what do i do?

    my computer displays grey screen and apple logo for 10 minutes or more during start up and shut down. sometimes it refuses to shut down . this issues started after installing OS lion. what do i do?

    I don't think it's exactly an incomplete installation brody, but most likely in-correct permissions somewhere along the line that either happened, or became magnified during the upgrade. Also, it could be corruption as well.
    First thing to do, is boot up holding down Shift key to do a safe-boot so we an clean up any corrupted OS caches, after that do another reboot, but go to the Lion recovery, and scan the HD for errors, repair any if you find them, and then try to do a Repair Permissions job.
    That should fix the issue, if not, we can start doing a PRAM reset  and SMC for good measure.

    Reset the device, restart the device, try downloading any other app.
    All of these are basic steps that could have been found by a simple search of the forums as a resolution for the issue.

    Try a Reset [Hold the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons down together for 10 seconds or so (until the Apple logo appears) and then release. The screen will go blank and then power ON again in the normal way.] It is 'appsolutely' safe!

    Stuck in Guided Access on iPad. iOS 7!
    - Triple-clicking won't work, the Accessibility Options pop-up and I tap Guided Access, it unticks, but no passcode input screen comes up, and the iPad stays in guided access.
    - Forced reboots don't work, the iPad just unlocks it self (no lock code) and goes back to the app that I am stuck in, which is Google Chrome.
    - Lost Mode is not an option, location services are off.
    - When I plug it into my computer, iTunes says that it is locked with a passcode, so I can't back it up.
    There seems like no possible way to get out.
