Thread: Iphone 4s keeps rebooting
07-05-2013, 04:26 PM #1Iphone 4s keeps rebooting
Hey guys, so i cracked my screen for my iphone and gave it in for repair at a local store called Buy N Cell in Mississauga, Canada. So i got it fixed and returned and i came home that day to find that my battery was not decreasing or increasing with use and charge. So i decided to reboot the phone and once that happened the battery was showed its actual percentage however the phone then continued to automatically reboot every 5 minutes or so. Ive tried to reboot it myself, to turn it off and on and to also administer a full restore however none of these options fixed the issue. There are 2 modes my phone enters, 1. when the phone reboots or shuts off it reboots itself continuously many times every 3-5 minutes, the battery percentage fluctuates and the phone freezes for half a second every 5 seconds. 2. After about 2-3 hours of this rebooting the phone manages to enter a state where the battery percentage freezes at whatever number it was at during that time and the phone remains on (does not reboot) however i do not know if my battery is at 90% or 10% and also the phone still freezes for half a second every 5 seconds. I find it strange that everything worked perfectly fine before i gave it in for repair and when i got it back it suddenly has an issue this serious. I have taken it back to the store however they say they are not responsible for it as a screen replacement would not have caused this issue. I am helpless and do not know how to fix this issue. They say that its a power chip problem on the motherboard and that they dont fix such complicated procedures...
What can i do to fix this? or do i simply just live with it until i can get a new phone?
thanks for all the help guys!

There are plenty of things that could have been damaged during the screen replacement. The phone comes apart about 70%-80% of the way during that repair. I'd start by getting the battery replaced. Either do it yourself or take it to a different repair shop. Or go back and make a fuss at the other place. I make it a point to test everything before and after I perform a repair that way I don't run into issues like this with my customers.Twitter: @irevivalrepairs | Instagram: @irevivalrepairs

battery connector may even be loose.
If I were you, I'd bring it right back to the shop that screwed it up and tell them to fix it.
