    Hi Guys,

    When I plug USB cable I get the white apple for a minute or so,
    then blank screen and nothing else.

    It is not recognised in itunes or else.

    Ive tried some resetting as suggested but it doesnt seem to work.
    I left it on charge for 24hrs but no signs of life.

    Is there any hard reset of sort I could do to bring it back to life?

    tks..Im quite frustrated lately... and my iphone needs service as well!
    :mad: Mr. Jobs...pls dont mess around!

    Are you absolutely sure the cable isn't defective?

    If you haven't already done it . . . press and hold the home and sleep buttons simultaneously until the white Apple logo appears.

    I've tried that several times as well..
    no luck.
    is there any way to make a total reset apart from holding home and on/off button?

    Not that I know of. The only time I've run into this problem it was the USB cable. Time for a trip to the Genius.
