Thread: 2G only boots when power AND home held down!

    Default 2G only boots when power AND home held down!

    I have a poorly 8GB 2G which sounds like a serious case of hardware failure... But I'm curious:

    The symptoms: Pressing & holding down the power (sleep/wake) button doesn't boot the phone. Pressing & holding the power AND home buttons together eventually persuades the phone into recovery mode (connect to iTunes shown on screen).

    Doesn't seem to matter whether the phone is plugged into an AC adapter, the Mac or unconnected to anything at all and the weird bit is that letting go of either the power button or home button turns the phone off immediately as if someone just yanked a power cable out.

    Perversely just as I was about to write this post I thought I'd try the phone one more time - pressing power on its own booted into recovery mode, I hooked up to iTunes and was able to perform a restore just fine. Now though the phone is back to its old ways (see above).

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    probably a hardware failure. Try returning it to apple

    Did you set it up as a new phone or restore from backup?
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
