    While i was charging my iphone 4s to the wall outlet and put it on this table, it fell on the floor. The thing is that table is very slippery and thus it slips very easily. I had this happen few times where my iphone would then drop straight on floor but i had no issues with it.


    It was also without the case as well while charging. I cannot charge it to the wall outlet or my laptop computer. Doesn't show any charge. Is the reason for this most likely because there is damage in that area where my iphone usb charger connect to my iphone?


    Is there a way to fix this? Or do i have to go to a repair shop for this? Phone right now has that you need to charge iphone to turn on because its 0 percent now. Can someone give me suggestions here?

    Hi if you try home+on/off reset, does that work?

    Did you check the connector where the charging cable plugs in? You may have damaged it when the phone dopped and hit the floor. Also try another charging cable as that may have been damaged. If all else fails, take it to a cell phone repair shop.

    I just upgraded to the iPhone SE. I had a 4s for the longest time. Dropped it several times too on various hard surface ground. I always powered off then powered on. I tried resetting. Then I tried charging. Any of the combinations. 4s is pretty sturdy.
