    Default [Battery] iPhone won't charge and power on

    Basically the iphone was working up to the point when the battery symbol came up and it wouldnt charge, the battery icon was red and kept flashing for a bit and wouldnt charge, so reading forums, i then held the power and home button to reset the iphone, now the iphone is not coming on at all, i do not know what to do i payed alot of money for this and i am really annoyed. Some people said connect the phone to itunes, but if my iphone isnt coming on then itunes isnt going to reconise it and neither is ziphone, i have tried different cables, mains adaptor etc but still no luck, i think it might be the battery not charging, so i have ordered a new battery but still not sure and need advice from an expert, it may just need charging for 24 hours, but i dont know.

    Please could you help me and tell me how i could get my iphone to power on thanks.

    It seems to me that you need to leave the thing charging from a wall socket for a bit. I doubt that the phone has enough charge to turn on, i dont think anything is wrong with it . It just need a fair charge.

    Default Same Problem - Fixed

    I had the same exact problem and I was able to fix it! No need to take it to Apple.

    (specifically convenient for those of us that got the iphone 3g on ebay)

    This is how it happened:

    I was talking on the iphone when it said that my battery had less than 10% so, I went ahead and connected it to the wall charger I have for it and continued to talk. 30 mins later the iphone just turned off completely. I was pretty upset to say the least. I went to turn it on again and found the same exact picture being described. I figured I just had to let it be for a few hours on the wall charger.

    The next day in the morning I find out that the iphone had the same picture and had not charged 1 bit!

    I restarted it (pressed the power and home buttons to force it to shut down and turned it on again) and nothing, same picture. I took out the charger and put it back, nothing, same picture (it would even turn off if I didn't put the charger back in right away).

    I then used my USB dock (a dock actually for the old iphone version, but that still works for the 3g, if you force it in). And nothing my computer would not recognize it.

    Finally I thought of something:

    I placed in the dock and turned it on, once again giving me the annoying battery screen. However, this time I actually restarted my computer. My rational was that if the device was connected while it was booting up the computer had to recognize it somehow.

    During my computer's boot sequence the iphone appeared to had turned off, I didn't touch anything though. After windows loaded, I noticed that still the iphone was black as if it was turned off. Thinking that it probably ran out battery once again, I went to turn on the iphone while still having it on the dock (during this whole time I had not removed it from the dock).

    And alas! I saw the apple symbol and my springboard showed up!

    It is now currently charging (I can see the charge increase on the screen, when I lock the screen, it is now halfway and green) on my usb dock.

    I went to place it back on the wall charger though and it seems that it doesn't work. I will be buying a new wall charger soon.

    I am thinking when I was talking on the iphone and connected it to the wall it simply never charged and thus the battery completely drained. As soon as I placed it on something that wasn't broken (ie: my iphone usb dock) it started to charge but still was frozen on that (stupid) battery screen. Restarting my computer while connected did something to the iphone so that now it is fully operational. All without having to resort to apple's communist ways of trying to control all aspects of your life.

    Personally I'm not an apple fan. I "gave into" the whole iphone thing when I figured out there was a generation of people my age committed into fighting back the apple empire while still using its technology.

    Cheers

    Default Same problem - suggested solution does not work

    I have the same problem with my 3GS 32GB. Have tried all suggested solutions multiple times, including the one below by SM86. Unfortunately nothing has worked up to now. Any further suggestions anyone? New battery? New phone? Many thanks for your feedback.

    3G , same problem, shoved into old 2G dock and it turned right on. Someone want to tell my why it can't do it through USB or plugged into the wall? Very strange, I am baffled.
