Hi, I know what happened to my iPhone 3G. Today, it was working perfectly but this night, the home button stop working. So I closed it with the top button, once restarted, the home button wasn't working. But then, it became really slow, everything had a delay of 6 seconds. I try to restart it but it got stuck the shutdown circle animation. And without the home button, I couldn't hard reset it. But suddenly, the screen goes black and now, nothing work. But when I plug it on my mac, iTunes display an error 0xE8000065.

Jeez, I totally lost. I was waiting for the iPhone 4 but I don't when it gonna release in Canada. The closest AppleStore is at 250km.

I'm quite ****** off!

iPhone 3G, iOS 4

    Well, since the screen is black, and it doesn't recognize my finger, I can't put it on dfu so, i'm quite f**ked up. I can't see what I can do to restart it. Or even start it, I can't call to it.

    Woot, it finally shutdown after running out of batteries. I'm charging it, then I'll see if the home button works again.

    The home button is still not working.

    Could it be hardware, which is hard to understand since I haven't drop it or it didn't receive any hit.


    PS: Am I talking alone?

    Well, I opened my iphone and I saw the problem. A connector from the home button is broken. So I order a replacement on ebay, 3.99$. Hopefully, it will be easy to replace.

    PS: Thanks for all the answers. Not even one reply.

    Hey, I just read your thread. I just signed on and am having the same issue. Did you get the replacement part? And if so, did it work? I am very close to taking it into the Genius Bar and have them look at it. The phone, however, was given to me from a friend and not under any kind of warranty.
