My neighbor gave me his iphone 3g 16GB after he attempted to erase the personal data on it. Now the screen only shows the white Apple logo and it cannot go into any screen- no response from buttons nor will it turn off. What happened to it and is it fixable?

@Carlo - typically it'll show some sign of life if you just plug it into your computer such as a low battery warning, so if it's nothing at all it may be the logic board.

@vampy - if you aren't getting a wireless signal at all even right up next to the router, it is probably going to be a logic board issue.

@Daniel - most likely the cable came unplugged while putting it back together or it got torn. You'll just have to go back in and inspect the cable and connectors to see what needs to be reseated or replaced.

@me - I would double check you have all the settings right on the router and the correct security key if one exists. Otherwise, it is probably a logic board issue.

@G Smith - now that's a weird problem. We've never seen that. The cheapest guess that I'd try first is a possible short in the mute switch? so try that first.. after that logic board. We wouldn't mind seeing that one in shop to diagnose if you can't figure it out.
G. Smith

Thank you very much for your prompt reply. However I should have added that this only happens when the ringer is turned on. If I turn the ringer off the display doesn't cycle on and off. But what good is a phone with the ringer off?
Powerbook Medic

@G. Smith - I would try booting it into DFU mode and see if it'll stay on and if so I'd restore it in iTunes. If not, it may be a bad battery or worst case a logic board.

If ur iphone wont turn on. Press and hold the sleep and welcome button while its charging till it goes off. Unplug power cord from phone then hold the sleep button while plugging it back in. Keep holding it until it shows a picture of it connecting to iTunes. Going to iTunes and click restore mode. Everstar your phone your previous state and to work after that

@ruben - it is most likely the LCD or the LCD got unplugged inside, so you'll probably want to open it up first and see if its an easy fix.

@Muhammad - there are several possibilities. It could be the screen, logic board, or battery. If nothing at all is coming on the screen and it is not being seen by your computer, it is probably the logic board. You may want to send it to us or take it somewhere to be professionally diagnosed.

@vasco - try holding it right next to the wireless router and see if it detects it. If it does, you probably have an antenna issue causing a very weak signal, otherwise it is probably the logic board due to some defect in the wireless hardware.

Not seen elsewhere or here: there are five different screws used in the 3G. I recently restored one-such, and had an 'unknown error' when trying to connect to iTunes after re-assembly. 2nd tear down and looked carefully at everything to discover FIVE different but similar looking screws. An ex-radio-tech, I sorted which ones should go where, re-assembled, and it worked perfectly. Obviously a wrong length screw was shorting something out somewhere. Suggestion. Before taking apart: draw a rough sketch of each layer, and place each removed screw onto some sort of sticky stuff (bluetack?) on the sketch to reflect it's position in the phone. May be able to upload some example photos taken, but given this 70 year-old brain I wouldn't count on it :)

Once again a great service, appreciated. A suggestion re the lower speaker and mic grills: I eBought an old 3G which was very dirty - it had worked hard - and the grills were almost totally blocked. No compressed air at hand, but do have some Japanese Kao brand clothes washing detergent called 'BioZet Attack'. It is a superb cleaned, when give time (it will remove 10 year old acrylic paint!). Very effective. Remove the phone screen, logic board and lower mic/antenna/connector block (3 screws). In a suitable sixed squareish container add enough water to cover the grills, and and a small pinch of the detrgent powder. Let disolve, then carefully stand the grill portion of the phone in the mix. Leave for a couple of days. Check with a jeweler's loupe (about 10x) to see if the laser-cut micro holes are clear. When they are clear, carefully rinse and dry, then reassemble. Your calls quality will be dramaically clearer! Now I'm off to try the DFU suggestion. Thanks again.

At around 3:45, this asks you to lift the LCD from the digitizer mechanism. I did this, and damaged the LCD from attempting to remove it exactly where it shows. I would strongly recommend to gently pry it from the sides where you removed the screws to lift it at first, that was the tool you use to pry it with will be kept from touching the actual screen.

@bill - typically the display will still work with a cracked display. the lcd may have had more severe damage. also if you see any corrosion around where the LCD connects, the logic board could still be bad. not much you can do at this point besides trying a new LCD.

a friend got a a1421 from a flea market as is and when got back and connected to charger, got nothing on screen. i disassembled per video and found some corrosion around batt terminal and minor sighns of water damage and a cracked lcd. when i cleaned and dried in rice and reassembled still nothing on screen but computer recognized the device and installled drivers and will even browse the pictures on the phone memory.. no sim in it or with a valid att sim with sp data package. what would u suggest i try? will a crack in lcd prevent from starting ? and does it sound like the logic board is ok since computer recognized and communicated with it

Powerbook Medic

@feddry - so the headset speaker works but then stops? that's fairly weird. I would try all of the software possibilities first. Turn the phone completely off and back on and see if it does it. Then restore the phone in iTunes. If that doesn't fix it, it may be the speaker itself, but it is more likely the logic board has a short.

Powerbook Medic

@shomen - if the battery is completely dead it can take a few minutes plugged up for it to get enough juice to show something. I guess at this point if its completely working you could either keep it like you said or sell it for some decent money. People like the out of contract iPhones.
shomen
3 years ago
Now tell you what? After arranged a new replacement Iphone4(A1332) the A1241 started to show a flash symbol on screen again when pressing the front-button. The battery must have been completely empty that is clear. Plugged it into the charger and the thing started to charge up again. We have to be aware that it could not connect to the 3G network anymore since the number was transferred to new handset. Is there any hack possible over the 3G network we were not aware of that could have caused it to crash and drain the battery completely? Will use it as a Wifi IPOD now as long as it wants to work ;)
shomen

btw, just for the record it was in the pocket of my blouse in stand by. Suddenly I fellt something hot there took the phone out and noticed that the display was on to let me unlock it but not responding to anything.. then it blacked out, died I guess...maybe CPU? Understand from your answer that even with a dead battery there should be some sign when connecting external power to it, right? thanks for the advise anyway.
Shomen
3 years ago
No there is no life in it anymore when plugging it in on the PC or in the normal Apple charger. However an external battery unit lights its blue LED up meaning it is charging but still no life in the handset. This looks like more severe trouble?
Powerbook Medic

@Shomen - you'd really have to open it to see. Typically it will still show something on the screen when you plug it up even if it is the please charge symbol.

Hi PowerbookMed, The iphone 3g (a1241) got very hot today and then stopped working. Is it likely that the chemistry in the Li-Ion battery was doing strange close the dangerous temperature level and then the build-in safety switch disconnected they failing battery? this could be repaired by just changing the battery or something else could be damaged? cheers!

@Maria - it is really hard to say. With liquid damage, it really depends how much it had a chance to damage and how much is corroded inside. You can open it up and take a look around for corrosion or send it off to us or take it somewhere locally to diagnose.

ok so i have just recently repaired my iphone 3g. I had to replace the digitizer and the internal earpiece. the digitizer works great but still no sound out of the earpiece. My question is... when replacing the earpiece assembly the prongs on the back... are they positive and negative? the are not marked so im thinking I may have installed it backwards... Does any one know about this repair?? I cant find anything out there on it.

Word of advice...when trying to remove the cracked the glass from the frame by heating it up to melt the glue...BE CAREFUL not to overheat the HOME button...I warped mine and had to then rig it up for it to function properly. All the videos out there and not one mentioned this.

DO NOT...I repeat..DO NOT use flathead to lift lcd from assembly...just use fingernails or something thin to wedge open the side tabs and lift up the lcd gently with plastic pry tool (or with finger). Should come right out.

Cable 3 sucks big toe to put back in and to make it stay when trying to connect cable 2 back on (even if the little tab is pressed back down on it).

It is much easier to remove front by using a suction cup...I removed it in like 5 seconds.

couldn't you have at least mentioned that if you press too hard while removing the screen the LCD ink will crack and leak causing damage to your screen?

The video is very good but unfortunately requires QT pro to be downloaded; is there any workaround for this? thanks!

Very nice! It will be much more nicer if there is manual with picture like ro_bee_lee does for different mobile cell phones.

If it doesn't work after it has dried out, then it likely needs to have the logic board replaced. However, generally with water damage, multiple parts can fail inside the unit, so it may just need to be replaced.
