My iPhone keeps doing the same thing. First, it suddnely turned off and when I plugged it to charger the Apple logo kept showing for a few seconds and then went away and it kept doing the same thing. I then, unplugged and plugged it back to the charger and it worked but it would stay on for 10 minutes maybe and then turn off again and do the whole flashing apple logo thing. I tried everything and didn't work! And I've never had any problems with my iPhone before this.
Hi where can I send a tip for Apple I believe that Ios7 is good system but ios 6 looked like expensive product icons and sounds was expensive it would be wonderful if you would at least have made a topic(shift from ios6 to 7 and 7 to 6) in ios7? email@example.com
The dreaded flashing Apple logo just happened to me. Yesterday, I went for a jog using Nike+ app while listening to music via JBL bluetooth headphones. All of a sudden it shut down. I powered it back on and the Nike+ app resumed recording my run. Then it shut down again! This time, after I powered it back on, the weirdest thing happened. A kernel screen came on showing programming code that filled up the entire screen.
I am running the latest iOS (iOS 8) on the iPhone 5 and latest iTunes (Yosemite). Just got back from the Apple store (Portland, OR) and the rep. told me because my phone is out of warranty they couldn't give me a replacement phone. Option A = Buy a new iPhone 5 for $260. B = Buy a newer iPhone (5C, 5S, 6, 6+) C = Beg, borrow, or steal another iPhone (I threw in the 'steal' part).
Frustrating. I have been an iPhone user since the 3rd gen. phone and never had this kernel-flashing thing happen. So much for trying to sell my working iPhone 5 32GB on craigslist to pay for an upgrade.
This might be weird, but I think the problem has to do something with the battery's movement, maybe it disconected?
Because, I see some people tried to shake it and it worked again - reconnected the battery?
And for some the iPhone stops working after jogging - disconected battery?
So my situation here, that my iPhone does the same thing, however, I could hear the battery moving inside the body, so again - did it disconect?
So anyway, I'm gonna go seek help and ask to connect the battery - GREAT JOB APPLE, I ALREADY BROKE AN IPAD AND AN IPOD TOUCH ALL BECAUSE OF APPLE ISSUES!
Hi! I have been having a similar issue with my iphone 5. (I am using my parents ancient windows xp media center to try to fix)
1. Apple logo flashed when i plugged it into wall charger and wouldnt charge at all or turn on.
2. when plugged into computer would not do anything. Couldn't be recognized(computer didnt even say it was plugged in, even in device manager) and would not even flash the apple logo while plugged into computer.
Tried all of the aforementioned steps to no avail. Was just about hopeless... Then I ran across an article describing DFU mode.
NOTE: If you are worried about any photos contacts etc on your phone DO NOT CONTINUE. TAKE IT TO AN APPLE STORE.
That being said I was able to put my phone in DFU mode by plugging in the phone to my computer. With black screen and no power indication on the phone, I held down the wake button and home button for 10 secs. Released the wake button and continued holding down the home button for another 10 secs and then released it as well. Suddenly my computer recognized the phone in dfu and was recognized in itunes and I am able to now restore it(Aka erase everything and reinstall the firmware). I have not finished it yet but will reply back once it is done and will let you know if it works. The screen has stayed black the entire time.
