    hey, first post here. I'm not sure whats going on with my I phone but it will boot up for a few seconds, then just power itself down. Its unresponsive without being plugged into a computer or power outlet.
    Heres the video

    hey, part of the problem is that I purchased it "as is" off of ebay so im not sure of the details. Im not sure if its a battery issue because when its plugged in with or without the battery it does the same thing. when its not plugged in, it doesnt do anything....

    I purchased it as is and this is how it came. Not working. I knew it wasnt going to, so im not disapointed, but Im still just drawing blanks on what it could be thats causing the "lack of cooperation". I have no idea what the previous owner used it with. I'll shoot em an email to see if i can get a bit of info. Thanks
