Thread: Apple Logo on iPhone 3g
08-17-2010, 12:28 PM #1Apple Logo on iPhone 3g
I have iPhone 3g that was given to me with a broken digitizer, broken housing and a missing power button. It seemed that when it was broken the software was functioning normally and only needed a few cosmetic fixes. So I ordered some parts off eBay and got everything installed fine only to turn it on and find the the iPhone stalling at the Apple logo. Basically the power button will turn it on (but not off) and the phone acts like its booting up but never gets past the logo. I was wondering if anyone could direct me towards what i may have done during my rebuild or to a solution. I have already tried to get it into recovery mode, but it doesn't seem like its registering when I press the buttons. I want to say I have a bad logic board, but considering it was acting fine before I took it apart makes me think that might not be my problem.
Any help will be much appreciated

Hope you didn't use lots of double-sided tape to get the screen back on. Luckily I had used just a little and it was easy to re-remove... which you have to do to replace the home button. I did notice that the tiny metal disk under the home button was off-kilter when I went to replace it. That may have been the problem with it, but I wasn't taking a chance and replaced the ribbon and button.
Now I am stuck at 1603 error when restoring, but that is another thread

I'll keep you posted if this works
I do have another question, does it matter which screws go in which holes on the logic board? I mixed them all up except for the "do not remove" and just guessed based on size where they should go.
Dude, you are a beast. All i had to do was clean the contacts for the home button and it just came on. Its amazing what I overlook when fixing broken things.
Again much thanks.
