    So my friend gave me this bricked iPhone, and asked if i can help, so i thought it must be a simple restore process, but it isn't.

    The symptom:
    If you try to turn on the phone, or plug it in while iTunes is on, the phone will stay black for a minute or maybe more then turn on the backlight of the screen, with nothing on it. it stays like this then turns off and does it again...

    What i tried:
    1) Tried doing an update - nothing happens, it takes 10 minutes then iTunes shows an error.
    2) Tried doing a restore - same issue.
    3) Tried recovery mode, but nothing happens
    3) Entered DFU mode and did a restore (the process here seems promising) the phone will go through extracting software and preparing for restore, then says waiting for phone, and the phone will show a black screen with a white apple logo, and stays there until the process fails.

    I have searched this issue on google Youtube, with no hope, as all their videos are barely considered bricked.

    Would appreciate some experts opinion

    Thank you in advance

    Welcome to iMore! In my experience you have a definite hardware problem, probably with the phone's logic board. If that's the case you might as well get a new phone. I don't know for sure though. You might want to take it into a repair shop and have them look at it.
