    Hi

    Iphone 4 is fully 100% charged at the moment but it doesn't turn on whatsever without power attached. It instantly turns off when I take it off charger or plug charger.

    Even with USB power attached it just loops on the Apple logo. With the phone plug powered, it eventually gets to a screen with IOS6 as the background image whereby I enter my lockscreen password then it asks me to attach to a computer via USB. This is of no use because if i detach the wire from the wall charger it instantly turns off.

    I have tried the DFU and restore approach with the phone attached to a computer and it will eventually give me option to restore but that is not a option as I havent backed up (my bad) my phone recently.

    Do you think its a hardware or software issue? Anything I can do without restoring it (even then Im skeptical it will solve the issue)

    Thanks

    Well unfortunately a restore is probably necessary to get it working again. Your only other possibility is a completely dead/broken battery. You could replace that and see if it works.

    And whatever happens, back up your phone!
