IPhone :: 4S Screen Went Blank, Cant Get It Back Even When I Try To Do A Hard Reset
Mar 13, 2012
I received a phone call and once it ended the phone screen went blank.I tried to do the home button and power button 15 second hold.But it doesnt work.I can hear my calls and emails come in and the phone screen stays blank.What to do? Can apple fix this.
My iPhone was syncing to my computer and I left it, and when I came back it was turned off. I tried to turn it on like normal but nothing happened, so I tired a hard reset but it also didn't work. At first it acted like the screen wasnt on because it would vibrate. But as of now it is completely dead.
Just got a new iPhone 4 the other day. I was charging the phone and it fell, only a couple feet at most. There is a small crack in the back of the phone now, and it won't turn on anymore. My friend has a iPhone 4 as well and we swapped out the battery and the back housing (just to make sure that the crack didnt short anything out) but the symptoms persist.
I have it plugged into the wall charger now, tried doing a hard reset (holding home and power for some time) but nothing. This is very frustrating to think that the iPhone 4 is this fragile. Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try to get this device back up and running? Any help at all would be very appreciated.
i backup my phone everyday. Now ive have this freezing problem an my phone wont switch on. Just incase i want/need to do a hard reset, i want to know what the back up ..backs up?.....does it save contacts, images etc?.and IF i do a hard reset....what will i loose?
Is it possible to change the screen lock pin on a Galaxy S5 without doing a hard reset. I just starting using the feature today. I enter a pin and reconfirm it. Walked away from the phone and when I went back to it and enter the pin I chose it keep telling me "incorrect pin". Samsung and Google support are saying my only option is hard reset since your can no longer change it with Android device Manager and I do not have a "findmymobile" account setup already.
I tried to hard reset my LG G3 device. Following the Volume Down + Power Button instructions, everything was looking well. I confirmed to reset the phone and since then, the phone's been rebooting itself automatically without moving further than the LG logo screen.
Turns on, LG Logo and turns off immediately after. I tried taking out the battery but once I turn the device back on, the process keeps happening.
Why is my lumia 1320 get a multi colored paint like sreen after a hard reset.,?i flashed it many times but still the display is distorted.,what should i do?is it a hardware issue?my phone haven't fell at all..
After i did a hard reset to my lumia 1020 which is on lumia black. glance screen has shifted under display+ touch. and now i cant change my night mode clock color and glance has options off,peek,timed and always on. earlier before hard reset i had interval, peek and always on.
My wife's new 1520 has the 8.1 developer preview on it. She has been using it for a month or so & then recently as she was using it, the screen would completely turn black. A second later (or 1/2 second) everything on her display would come right back up. It appears the same as if you were changing the display resolution on a pc, the screen blanks out for a second & then to the new resolution. The phone isn't hot, nor was it recently charged. It doesn't matter what app is running. In fact, I hard resetted it yesterday & it still does it.
I noticed yesterday, after I completely resetted it, I was using IE & the screen went blank, then back on, but the screen was upside down. This lead me to believe it was a sensor, so I turned on the rotation lock. Since then it has never come back on upside down, but it still goes blank. It really appears as a hardware issue. I started with a clean slate & the problem still persists.
So I attempted to do a full wipe/hard reset on my Nokia 1020.. I thought it was working until it restarted and now goes to a WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER screen. Am I completely screwed now? I don't understand how I can't even force-reset the phone. This is really upsetting and I don't know what to do.
so i have a blackberry curve and randomly it just turns to a white screen and becomes unresponsive. When i take the battery out it has a white screen with a box, like the one that shows when its loading and then eventually it turns back to the blank white screen.Then only way i can get the phone to turn back on is by plugging it in the charger. Then again it randomly goes back to the blank white screen while im using it
if i do a hard full reset will that reset eveything including the first hotmail live account i put in on the first day of activation because im not living in the same country anymore and want to start a new zune/marketplace account to buy apps i have no problem with hard reset IF It will work?
A couple hours ago my phone was having issues connecting to my wifi automatically. When I went into Settings > Wifi my phone froze. I did a hard reset (holding down the top key and the home button) untill the little apple appeared. Problem is the apple stayed there and then dimmed and eventually shutoff. By itself the process would repeat and repeat; Apple, dull apple, no apple. I waited it out and it eventually came back on after about 20 minutes. Â
My phone was froze again a couple hours later and I did a hard reset again. The same process occured and its been repeating for at least 2 hours now. Ive tried plugging it into my charger and nothing happened. I plugged it into my laptop and thought i would try a factory reset but since my phone isnt "on" itunes does not pick it up. I hace also tried removing te sim card and doing another hard reset while its doing its process. Â
So i have noticed with all the issues with 5.1.1 that when you hard reset by holding down the top button and the home button, the phone while restart with the apple logo and reboot. However, it will not kill/close the applications in the open programs tray. Am I the only one experiencing this? Can anyone else reproduce or confirm that hard reset used to kill the programs in other versions?
I was having problems downloading from the app store (which another thread resolution solved for me) but in the midst of working on this issue, a friend suggested I do a hard reset on the phone by holding the top power button and the little dot on the front until it just shut off. I did this and I come back to none of my text messages. They have all been deleted. I can't find anything on the forums about this.
I am not sure I particularly care, meaning I don't think I had too much in the way of important information contained in them, but it wasn't supposed to do that so that's a bit annoying to me. Why did my phone do something it wasn't supposed to do?
Every time I fully charge my iPhone 6 Plus it turns off and doesn't want to turn on normally: I have to reset it every time by pressing the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button for a couple of seconds.Â
Also, sometimes after leaving it in sleep mode, when I wake the iPhone I find it having restarted alone without me doing anything: it asks me to type again the PIN number of my SIM card, as if it had just been turned on.Â
I have an iPhone 3gs that is out of warranty. I purchased this phone from AT&T. Last night my phoone went completely dead (battery percentage was at 96% just moments before) and now will not turn back on. I have tried just about everything I have found on discussion boards- trying hard reset, plugging into itunes, charging for15-20 mins then holding down sleep and homebuton..... NOTHING works. This phone will not light up AT ALL. My computer wont even recognize it. Is there anything else I can do?
My iphone 4 is completely blank. I can't do a hard reset on it. It is charged and when I plug it into the charger, nothing happens. Before the screen went blank the apple symbol appeared with lines through it, then the phone stopped working.
I have a bunch of books in my kindle library and had downloaded a subset of them to my iphone in the kindle app.Â
I was having issues with the iphone, and I ended up doing a backup/hard-reset/restore. Everything came back fine except my downloaded kindle books.Â Actually, when I first opened the kindle app, I saw the previously downloaded books listed in the "device" tab, but they soon disappeared.Â
Where does the kindle app store this info on my phone and why wasn't it saved/restored to/from the backup?Â
I can download those books again from the cloud, so nothing lost, but it is an annoyance - especially if one likes to have lots of books handy.Â
My Mac crashed last Friday. First timeIs there any way to get my photos FROM my iPod Touch back into my new hard drive. The iTunes sync only goes one way from the computer to the iPod. It syncs the photos taken with the iPod (really an old iPhone 3G without phone service) but not the folders which I synced from the old hard drive to the iPod over the past year.
