Thread: Please Help!!! Phone won't power on!

  1. #1
    Default Please Help!!! Phone won't power on!
    My phone just stopped working. I can't even boot it. I tired using Ziphone to put it in DFU mode, but it won't even power on to allow the computer to identify the phone.

    I managed to get power to it once but it flashed a few times then just stayed white.

    I have only had the phone for three months and have been anal with it. It has always been in a silicon cover and had a screen protector on it. It has not been dropped or gotten wet.

    Please help!!!! I am in Australia so I cannot take it to Apple as the phone has not been officially released here yet.

    Does anyone know how I can fix it or know anywhere in Sydney I can get it fixed?

    I tried that, I can't get power to it at all.

    I have tried holding the home and power buttons to get it into recovery mode. Then I have tried the home button for 10 secs after that, and it still did not work.

    Is it possible I have put it in DFU mode so now it won't power on?

    Has anyone had the same problem and got it fixed?

    I was listening to music then hopped in my car, and went to turn the music off, but the music turned off and the screen went black.

    I tried charging it over night but that didn't help. I have only had it for 2 1/2 months so I don't know why the battery would do this.

    Seemed like you bought it bad. Sorry my man, looks like you might have to crack into the hardware yourself.

    What would the problem be? Is it just the battery?
