IPhone 4s :: Won't Turn On - Lock Button Broken And Already Tried Plugging Into Computer
Dec 12, 2014
I dropped it and it turned off. When the lock button worked I could just press the home and lock button down and the apple icon would appear. What do I do now? I already tried plugging it into my computer.┬
The on-off switch/ lock button of iPhone 4s has become inactive over the past week. Whenever I press down on it, there is no satisfying click, it is simply idol. It wobbles loosely but however hard I do click on it it will not move! I only got it for Christmas 2011 so its not even old, and within the 6 months of my possesion it has not once been dropped or misused!
Doesnt show anything but siri works, and makes noise. There has been a similar thread and the solution was to restart the phone by holding down the lock and home button at the same time but my lock button doesnt work !!
Last night my iPhone 4 was updating for iOS 7.1.2 and it was working perfectly fine until it froze 3/4 of the way.
It has been stuck on the Apple logo and progress bar for over 13 hours, I tried draining out the battery hoping it would turn off then restart but even when it was on 0% it would not turn off. I also cant do the hard reboot with the home and sleep/wake/lock button due to my lock button being broken (it has been broken for awhile now) I can't get it fixed at the moment but I really want to be able to use my phone, I also don't want to restore my phone because im scared im going to lose everything on it.┬
My iphone stock on recovery mode and i have broken lock buttun.i tried all the program that takes you out of recovery mode but nothing helped..the only way that i can get my iphone back is to put it in dfu mode but as i said i don't have lock button so i can't. how can i put my iphone on dfu without lock button?
My iPhone 4s has been non-functional for 5 hours now... It is stalled during the new software update at about 20% complete . I cannot do the typical hard reboot due to a broken lock button. I have tried plugging it into a power source with no luck. I have no way of turning it on/off and cannot currently use it.
Yesterday, 9-2-14, my iPhone 4 unexpectedly powered off when it still had 50% charge. The lock/power button has already been broken for about 5 or 6 months and the screen is cracked. It was working for months even after these things had been wrong with it. I don't know how to turn it back on.
home button went out first then power button ive seen and tried the videos on Internet.. some work for about a day then my home button goes back to not working... not sure what to do. my phones warrenty and what not is to no use..
I have had my X6 for just under 6 months and the keypad lock button has snapped off. I have a protective cover on the phone and screen cover and have to admit that when I got the phone, I though it was a bad design and would eventually happen. How do I get it repaired?
The home button on my iPhone 4 wasn't working all night long for some strange reason. Then when the phone finally died it would not turn back on when plugged into the wall. The "charging" icon did not even show up! Holding the lock and home buttons does not work. Please help! It is jailbroken by the way.
I went to the genius bar and they sais they can't fix it.But they said I could pay $150 to get it replaced.Does this mean they will give me any iPhone I want or it must be the current type I have which is 3GS.
I put my phone in recovery mode because I wanted to try to free up space. It seems that Activation Lock is now broken?????????/ How? It does not prompt me to enter a previous persons apple id and password to activate. It just automatically activates itself. I have Find My Iphone turned on and signed in with my apple id but each time i "erase content and settings" it does not prompt me for my apple id and password to activate. What did I do?
Someone told me that I can add songs to the purchased folder in itunes on my computer, and then download them on my iphone. I tried it once before a while ago and did not think it worked. However, earlier today I noticed a song that used to not be on my iphone, and now it is. Then I remembered that it was the song I had used to attempt to put music on my iphone via the purchased folder. The thing is, I can't figure out how I did it.
My phone was fully charged but suddenly turned off┬ . I googled this and most of the responses I got was to reset the phone by holding onto the on/off button and the home button for 15 seconds. Only the problem is my on/off button is broken...
I have tried plugging the charger in but still no luck...
The sleep button is broken for a while and last night I was updating my iOS and when it was restarting it got stuck at the Apple logo. I can't force my iphone to turn off so I can't do the restore steps. What should I do?
My 3GS is broken - screen damaged and LED failed. I now have a new phone but is is an Android. The telephone number has been ported to the new phone but when anyone with an iPhone messages me it automatically switches to iMessage and sends it to the bust phone even though it's not functioning. The failure of the 3GS is complete and there is no way of accessing it and making any changes through any of the phone settings. Is there a way of unregistering it from the iMessage server as at the moment none of my friends and colleagues can contact me by message.
