    Unhappy [1.1.4][Advice] Major iPhone Problem; doesn't connect / charge; Error PopUp

    Hello,

    since a couple of days I have a huge problem with my iphone. I unlocked the phone and ziphoned it and everything worked well until i kept getting the message "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone" over and over again (in fact I still get this message every few minutes). I remember i dropped it one or two times... At first it still charged, when I plugged in the DC adapter and it also showed the battery icon on the display, but now it just does not connect to anything anymore. Actually I think it still charges but it won't show the battery icon. As long as the phone is not placed in the dock it won't turn off. It only restarts.
    It doesn't connect via USB (neither to Mac nor to PC) and it is not recognized in iTunes or any other Mac app. I'm still able to put the phone into recovery mode up to the point where it shows the iTunes icon but still it doesn't connect.

    Do I have a major software problem or could it be a hardware problem too? Any solutions for me?

    EDIT: yes I tried to use another connection cable / other usb port etc

    Thanks in advance!!

    only tried it with ziphone on mac and it didnt work.. ill try it later on with other apps and keep you up to date.

    i noticed that whenI try to connect it to a PC, windows makes that "new usb device" sound and opens a message that says "NEW USB DEVICE COULD NOT BE RECOGNIZED - MAYBE YOUR DEVICE IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY". well thats not the exact phrase but I had to translate it from german so thats what its basicially saying

    Or you could try reinstalling itunes but If your mac & your windows PC don't see the phone then I guess the problem isn't computer related anyway.

    Keep us informed how it goes

    hey guys,

    i just called a local iphone repair shop and they told me that there might be a problem with the logic board (some connection cable probably popped off) and they told me to look for this problem online too. there are several other people who dropped their iphone and had the same problems afterwards. so I think the solution just might be as "easy" as a broken logic board. i guess thats it...
    ill keep on trying though! ill tell you as soon as I find out more
