Hi all. I've got an iPhone 3g 8GB that has been fine for the past few months. Couple of nights ago while reading an email the screen distorted, causing the email i was reading at the time to break up. Part of the email appeared at the top of the screen and the rest at the bottom with a black line through it all. I rebooted the iphone and all was fine. Until last night when it done the same and has never recovered. At the moment when I turn on the iphone it goes to a white screen which eventually will display coloured vertical lines on it. I've managed to get the iphone into DTU mode and itunes has detected it. I tried a restore but it failed. Do you think there is a hardware problem with the screen or GPU??? Or is it stuck in recovery mode... i tried irecovery but it wouldnt detect the phone. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers. p.s. The phone is out of warranty.
