I let the iPhone5 (only 1 month old) fully discarge.

When I plugged it to the wall-socket (via the adaptor) it indicated that it started charging.

A few minutes later it stopped and there is nothing on the screen.

I looks dead. Tried diffent cables and A/C adaptor (from iPhone3 / iPad) and also USB

port of diffent Mac (MacBook and HP laptop) to no avail...

Any ideas?

    Leave it Charging for at least 30 Minutes.

    I already left it for 3 (three) hours now.

    Also it is NOT the adapter or cable since I used them yesterday when NOT fully discarged with success...

    What confuses me is that it indicated that it started charging ... BUT died a few (approx. 20 min) later.

    Now is dead.

    :-(

    If no joy...

     

    Then a Visit to an Apple Store or AASP (Authorized Apple Service Provider) is the Next Step...

     

    Be sure to make an appointment first...

    Well,

    waited 2 hours, plugged it again (both wall-adaptor & misc. Laptop USB port) NOTHING... dead..

     

    Then went to the nearby Germanos site where

    they suggested sending it back for service.

     

    As a last resort they plugged the iPhone5 to NON-APPLE, Non-Certified dual conductor USB cable with LEDs

    along the two conductors... (flashy) and it resurected itself @#()&$*(@&# ....

    Price for the cable : 40 euros = 52 US$ !!!!!

     

    What does this dual cable have more than the APPLE-Certified ... ??? lower resistance? or what....

    -10 for Apple.

     

    Trying to find this cable on-line now...
