Did you try pressing the home button and the on/off button at the same time? When apple icon comes on screen leave go of buttons. This fixed my problem.

cwillett, we don't want this to be an issue. Which make/model phone do you have? Do you have insurance on that device? Insurance will cover the device when there is physical damage. Click the link below for more details regarding the insurance feature:
