i have tried charging, trying to turn on. it is simply blank. i did not drop it, expose it to water, nothing out of the ordinary. does anyone have a clue as to how to handle? i am desperate as it is my only mode of communication....you all know!
Basics from the manual are restart, reset, restore.
Try each of these.
What happens when you plug it in to your computer and open iTunes?
iOS: Unable to update or restore
iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
nothing happened plugging it in either way. i found that by holding the sleep/wake button along with the home button for about ten seconds forced the reset. no other method worked. thanks all.
