iphone 4 not charging
« on: August 28, 2015, 07:24:26 PM »
hey guys... i just bought an iphone 4 .. nd its  sim locked so m using it as ipod..
 anyways the problem m facing is that till 2 days ago it was working fine....
 now m facing some  problems...
1: when i capture a pic.. the phone immediately reboots...

2: when i connect the cable for it to charge....then.. it wont charge .. i have tried reboot.. hard reset..

btw.. when i shutdown the phone.. then plig in the charger then it turn on .. normally without using sleep button.. which means it detects the charger  but wont charge nd turn on ....

so is it a software issue or  hardware... nd if anyone know a fix
i love my ipod 1g

You need to restore to 7.1.2
If not work you can have a hardware error for example the battery...

Go in to iTunes on and then turn it off then hold down the home button and connect the phone to the computer ( still holding the home button ) until the iTunes logo comes on and then restore :) if that doesn't work it's hardware and you may need a new charger port and or battery

You need to restore in other pc was never have itunes installed.
And you turn off the iphone and conect to itunes and press the home button to enter in recovery mode, itunes will detect the iphone...
Or enter to dfu mode and try to restore.

I think that the Lightning port (on your iPhone) is just dead.
Try to replace it, it must not cost that much to my mind...

Replace the charger port there like $5 online and it's pretty straight forward in replacing

the charging port isn't the issue.... i think...
cauz the iphone charges but slow & it dont detect the usb input..

 i mean if the battery is 5% and i plug it all night.... then in the morning it would be 100%

Did you tried to reinstall it ? Maybe it's that.
But I pretty sure it's the charging port on your iPhone that it's broken.

iPhone 4 dosent have a Lightning Port (remember?)
 @ isfiisfar: How are you brother??? ;D
1) Did you try or have you jailbroken it?
2) Does it turn on when you plug it into a wall charger? if it does how long does it charge?
3) Ya and check the battery
4) From your 1st post : 1: when i capture a pic.. the phone immediately reboots... :P
I smell software there  :P i have observed when i was on iOS 8 (really buggy!!!!!) some times thou (while unlocking)
Have you used iTools or iFunbox to put your songs? Have you put some photos too? and again this had happned on WD7 when i restored backup using iTools... :)
