i just got an iphone as a hand me down. i have tried charging it and it seems to not be charging. The closest to it working is the red no battery sign coming up on screen. i have charged it overnight and it is currently on charge now. the battery seems to not be charging and it is not being recognized in itunes. i have tried putting it in DFU mode and have also done the hold the power and home button but nothing seems to be working... i need help!

Have you tried using a different cable? It may be that the cable is not working as it should.

Have you tried putting the iPhone in recovery mode when plugged into iTunes?

You may have already tried this but this usually works.

1.make sure you have the latest version of iTunes.

2. Plug your cable into the computer.

3.now press and hold the home button on the iPhone whilst connecting the cable to your phone.

4.this should put your iPhone in to recovery mode.
