5s... Cant restore phone error 40....any idea ?
Anyone help here ?
I have a Verizon 5s... The phone wont turn on, this started a while ago out of the blue. If I connect to the PC (windows 10), iTunes will open up and say "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode You mist restore this iPhone before it can be used...blah, blah"
At this point, the Serial Number is N/A, after clicking on "restore" it goes through the motions. The screen lights up the phone, shows the Apple logo, then it comes out at the apple logo with the bar like it's installing and update....
RIGHT then I get an error from iTunes "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (40)"
After this, nothing, the phone is sitting with the Apple logo and the bar but, nothing happens. After hitting power and the main button and holding them. It goes back to going off.
The only time I see something on the display is when it's trying to restore it and fails...
Is this phone SOL or is it possible to recover this phone that is out of warranty... or should I dump it for parts ?
EDIT: Note. Factory image, Not Jail broken, and was working fine then all of a sudden.
