My Iphone is stuck in this cycle, i keep getting the apple logo and a black screen.

My battery was almost empty so i wanted to charge it from a wall socket, when i connected the cable it didn't do anything.. i was very tired and wanted to connect it to the pc the next morning. so next morning offcourse the battery was completly empty, i connect it to the pc, i get the apple logo! and then it starts.. i get the apple logo a few seconds, then black, and so on!
Sometimes the screens just lights up for a second, then black, repeats this a few times, then logo again, black.. etc etc..

My pc doesn't recognize the iphone.
I have tried to hold down the home and power button and all other tricks with the buttons plenty times but this just doesnt seem to work!!
Itunes, Ziphone, Quickpwn, nothing recognizes it!

Can anyone help me with this???

sounds like a bad cable that is only partially charging it enough to boot to the apple screen then die again... try a new cable first...

battery is not taking a charge then... Take it to the apple store and they can attempt to repair it in store, if not they can swap it for another...

Well my problem is i bought it in the US but live in Europe. I did all the unlocking myself also.. (this is over a year ago!)
So I can't just swap it for a new one... :/

I've managed to get the phone in DFU mode. and then just off. so it stopped trying to boot. i just left it in the pc for about an hour, then i just tried to switch on the phone, and now it's working again!
problem now is that the pc wont recognize the iphone anymore...

Okay, DFU was the "last resort" thing to try that I talked about in the other thread you have. I didn't think about the battery being bad in the other thread, since you said it was working, but from what I read here, the battery may be your issue. However, your latest post say "it's working again!" So, explain more.

Make sure you don't have any debris in the charging connection at the iPhone end. My brother had an issue where he couldn't connect it or charge it, and it turned out he had crap stuck in where the plug goes.
