      I have the same problem, did you find a solution?

      • Meg says:

        Hi, I’m having the same problem as well, I have a theory that the battery might have worn out, as it’s acting exactly like my 1st gen ipod nano did before it died. I’d have a professional or someone who is good with computers look at it before pronouncing it dead, but if you’ve had it for about 2 1/2 years, and use it everyday, it might be more cost effective to upgrade, the battery for the nano cost nearly as much as it did and I have no idea if it scales up or not.

          Try taking apart your iPhone and make sure the device is still on. Slowly remove flex cable number 3. Then try to reboot your device. Hope this works for you!

      Try restoring on iTunes. Your software must be corrupted since the iOS download was probably unsuccessful or maybe your device didn’t have enough power to complete it. Hope this works for you!
