A lot of iPhone owners in Melbourne, and around the world for that matter, have found themselves in a situation where their device simply won’t turn on. Pressing the power button doesn’t literally do anything, and users are left staring blankly at a black screen. This issue may be caused by a lot of factors ranging from the relatively simple to the more severe—the latter of which are best addressed by professional iPhone repairs in Melbourne. In the event you figure in the same situation, try these troubleshooting tips first to know what you’re dealing with.
Charge it up – Start with the obvious: your phone’s battery may simply be dead. Your iPhone’s battery can be completely drained on occasion, more so if you leave it unused for a long time and fail to reconnect the charger. Try plugging your phone in for at least 20 minutes using the charger (don’t charge using a computer’s USB port, since it doesn’t provide the same amount of power as a wall outlet); then try turning it back on.
Force restart – If charging your phone doesn’t work, try forcing a restart. To restart your iPhone, hold down the Sleep/Wake button until you see a red slider onscreen. Slide it across to shut the phone down, then do it again to turn it back on. In the event that the phone freezes and can’t restart, hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons simultaneously for about 10 seconds. If the screen dims out or the red slider appears, keep holding the two buttons down until the Apple logo comes up on the screen.
Revert to factory settings – This may be your ultimate sacrifice yet, since resetting to factory configurations basically erases all the data on your phone (though still a better choice than seeing your device dead and cold). Since your phone is dead, you can revert to factory settings first by connecting your device’s USB cable to the Dock connector. Then, hold the Home button and attach the other end of the cable to your PC to automatically launch iTunes. From there, you can put your iPhone into recovery mode and move on with the restoration.
If all these fail, opt for expert iPhone 4 repairs in Melbourne offered by companies like TWorld ICT Corp Pty, Ltd. There’s a good chance that your phone harbours far graver problems underneath which only a trained pro can deal with (i.e. corroded electronic components due to issues like water damage).
