I ask for help for my Iphone7; accidentally fell into water (completely submerged).
Now, after 4 days, if I put it on charge, the logo appears (black background with apple) it stays there for a few seconds then it turns off and on again showing the logo; as if it reboots.

It does not connect to the pc.

What could it be?

  • Hello guys!
    I have a problem with my iPhone, it's an 8 plus ..
    iPhone stuck on white power screen with apple.
    I already know that to unlock it you have to restore with iTunes, but with the restore I lose all the data! And I had very important things inside ...
    (I have not made any backups and saved on iCloud unfortunately).
    recently it is lit on the apple and at times everything darkens for a few seconds and then returns to the screen with the apple ... what could it be? Will I be able to recover the data somehow?

    • The only hope is the use of dr.Fone which can go to repair the operating system leaving the data in the memory intact.

  • I have an iPhone X bought in July and this problem occurred yesterday. The phone rang as if they were calling me, the sound lasted a few seconds and then went out, from there the Apple logo started flashing. After a certain number of flashes the phone turns on on the lock screen, but this for a few seconds, to then start flashing the apple on a black background again, all this in loop. I tried with the forced restart but nothing to do, I connected the phone to the MacBook Pro to restore / update it to iOS 13.4.1 but nothing has changed.
    Also I have tried with resetting the phone to factory settings but it warns me that an unknown error has occurred. I don't know what to try anymore, please help me.

    • I have a 12 pro max and when I turn it on the apple suddenly appears and disappears and then reappears so that the phone turns on me

      • same problem! In addition this morning I woke up to find my iPhone 12 turned off completely (which I had not turned off), since I wanted to turn it back on, I pressed the side button and the apple started to appear and disappear, still I have not been able to turn it on and the apple keeps flashing ...

  • On the screen of my iPad Pro the word "Ipad disabled" flashes in the background. Suddenly nothing was visible and I tried the home and power buttons. But the screen remained black, the writing appeared and after connecting it to the Mac with iTunes by pressing the power button it started again, but the writing still flashes in the background. What should I do to remove it?

  • Good morning,
    I contact you for a problem with my iPad mini 1. Unfortunately I fell beating the top corner where the switch off button is and this was enchanted causing a continuous switching on and off of the iPad.
    Since I had to replace the glass because it had been broken previously, I also disconnected the battery; at the time of restarting the screen had a line in the center and I also noticed a flashing effect of the brightness of the
    I would like to know if in your opinion it depends on the LED screen and therefore needs to be replaced or else ... ..
    Thanks for your kind response.
