Sounds like you guys may need a Logic Board. Does it turn on and work fine when its plugged in?

I am repair specialist fr ipods. PLaces to get new motherboards includes ebay, ifixit.com , or other websites sell them. This problem could also be because your battery is old and worn out and will not hold a charge but still circulate power. Batterires are much cheaper so i would make sure it is your logic board before purchasing a new one

my iphone 3g will work when plugged in but when unplugged it goes to flashing back and forth between the apple screen and blank. The camera also won't work and just shows a closed shutter. Everything else works fine on it as long as it is plugged in.
It is no longer in warranty & I really can't afford a new one.

What is the problem and how can I most cheaply fix it?

thanks.

I have the same problem and really miss my iPod but it happend really suddenly? I was listening to it before I went to sleep (Thin Lizzy of course) and I put it in my bag (I was on a holiday) and in the morning it wouldn't turn on! So how much on average is a new battery?
