Thread: iPhone 4 not booting. At all.

  1. #1
    Default iPhone 4 not booting. At all.
    Kso, I've bought an iPhone 4 of eBay. Don't know it's history, sadly. All that was said is that it didn't boot. I foolishly assumed it would be fairly simple to fix, so I bought it and I've tried all the usual stuff, hard reset, DFU mode, recovery mode, charging, different chargers.

    Anyone got any ideas before I dump this as a lost cause?

    If it matters at all, the screen seems 'on', like, stuck at black, not totally off. Any more questions I'll be happy to help

    Thanks!

    If it is a GSM iphone 4 and it will not boot up it may be blacklisted. Also the lcd may be broken.

    It isn't recognised in iTunes for what it's worth, so I don't think it's an LCD problem. And I didn't realise that blacklisting would stop it booting, I just thought it would just display 'No Signal.'

    Also, FWIW it's not been waterdamaged, I just checked the strips.

    If you got this for an extremely good deal you may be out of luck. How much did you buy it for?

    I'd rather not disclose it here, sadly, but suffice to say it seemed too good to be true.

    See if you can return it.
