    Let me say that this is my first post and your help in the past on many issues have always been handy.
    I have an iphone 1st gen
    It will not be recognized in any way by any kind of computer
    it does not charge but when connected to the computer, the screen starts to flash.
    sometimes it does turn on, but does not go past the pineapple (it has once going to the npebea recovery logo and thats how i know it has this too) and this only occurs when plugged into the usb of the computer, as it does not charge or turn on at all when plugged into the wall
    i have tried to put it into dfu mode, i have tried to use a mac/ pc to find some way for the comp to recognize it so i can restore it


    NO PHYSICAL DAMAGE OF ANY KIND IS ON THE PRODUCT

    Well dallas I'm sorry to hear about your iPhone, but most likely the phone had water damage in which you cannot see any physical damage the internal is water damaged.. Try bringing in to a ATT or APPLE store and they can probably repair it for a small fee. That's all I have. good luck..
