walked home today, slight rain, headphones in. did it a thousand times no problems. half an hour after getting home i check my phone and it doesnt turn on. liquid contact indicators are untouched, hard reset will not turn the phone on. in addition plugging my phone in has no effect.


is there a fix for this? does anyone know what i can do.

    What is your concept of a hard reset? Charge the phone for 30 minutes with the wall charger, then disconnect and hold HOME and SLEEP at the same time for AT LEAST 15 SECONDS (use a clock or a watch) or until an Apple logo appears. If nothing appears your phone is broken. If an icon showing iTunes and a USB plug appears connect to your computer and restore.

    hard reset; i held the wake button and the power button simultaneously for 20 seconds. no response of any kind. i will try the wall charger one more time.

    i just experienced an odd problem. Last night, i turned OFF my iphone before going to sleep (as i do every night, and i would turn it back on when i wake up). This morning, i tried turning on my iphone and nothing happened! i tried charging it (using several different chargers btw) and it wouldnt turn on at all.


    But after looking at this forum, i did a hard reset and it was finally able to turn on again.


    Does anyone know what this problem might be? Even though i got it working already, i'd like to know what might be the cause of it so i can avoid this issue in the future.

    iOS crashed when you turned it off. Like a Windows Blue Screen of Death or a Mac kernel panic.
