    Unhappy [Problem] iPhone won't turn on

    Hi Guys.

    I have an iPhone week 46 (US) that has been unlocked with ZiPhone AGES ago.
    It was first working with Claro (Brazil) and then O2 (UK) for months and months.

    Over the past few months I've dropped it a few times on hard floors, resulting on buggy messages like: "This accessory is not compatible with your phone. Would you like to turn it into Airline mode for this accessory to work properly?" (or something like that).

    I have also noticed the iPhone wouldn't go off. After a power off, it would immediately power on, as if there was some dirt on the connectors or something.

    Anyway, I was pretty happy about it. Now I came back to Brazil for a month and I had to force it into Airplane mode so I could travel with the phone over the plane (it won't stay powered off, right?). When I got here, I bought myself a Claro SIM card and plugged it in.

    Boom... during the process, I got a quick "Repair Needed" message that followed by a power off.

    Now the phone won't turn on again. Trying to plug it into my computer results in the apple logo showing up for a few moments and the phone turns off again. Leaving it plugged results into the phone powering up and down in what seems to be a random manner. Sometimes the screen just flashes in contrast and then powers off again.

    Holding down the power+home button for a few seconds doesn't result in anything (apparently it won't go into DFU so I can attempt a restore).

    Any magical ideas? I don't really fancy shipping this thing back to a Apple Store in the US for repair with all my data inside a jailbroken phone with loads of wierd apps installed, if you know what I mean. :/

    Any help appreciated,
    ozzy

    *edit* attempting the pre-mentioned procedures without a sim card results in the same outcome.

    It sounds to me like there's a problem with the midboard. Either that, or the logic/commboard.

    Maybe you are having problems
    with the battery?
    Why I say this?
    Because the iphone goes to the Apple Logo
    and then nothing. Thats seems the battery
    or Boards.
