iPhone 5s Stuck in a loop between charging symbol and Apple logo
i dropped my phone on the carpet about a foot..when i went to pick it up and turn it on it was black it wouldnt turn on.. it seemed to shut off completely.
i then plugged my charger in and it showed the battery logo and then apple logo..this loop continued for a few minutes and then started up... but...later when i unplugged the charger the phone immediately shut off and was black and the home button, no buttons would work.
i then plugged in the charger again and the battery symbol and apple logo began showing and running on a loop and its been running on a loop for hours and the phone never starts up. as soon as i unplug the charger from the phone the phone seems to go dead or shuts off..
is there a reason why its on a loop?..could it be the battery?...do i need to replace it?
ive tired a soft reset, hard reset, and nothing works..only activity i see is when i plug it in the charger and its on this continuous loop between the battery symbol and then the apple symbol.
is it trying to start up but cant because of the battery? ive left it in the charger overnight and its still on the loop.
is it the battery?.. HELP...any info would be appreciated!
