How to fix error 4005
Solution 1. Install the latest version of iTunes on your iPhone, iPad and iPod. This is the simplest solution and often solves the problem.
Solution 2. Restart your computer. If, after downloading iTunes, the problem is still not resolved, it is recommended that you try restarting your computer. This action cleans up the registry as well as removes any iTunes and device connectivity issues. It is also capable of resolving connectivity conflicts, if any.
Solution 3. Update your computer. An outdated operating system is one of the most common causes for all the problems one can face with devices. Also, the latest version of iTunes is unable to work well with an operating system that is too old.
Solution 4. Check the USB port. Ironically, sometimes the easiest way to fix the 4005 error is to try another USB port. Try connecting the iOS device to all USB ports on the computer and see if there is any improvement.
Solution 5. Charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod. If the battery is at a low level, the lack of power can be the main cause for the inability to reset the iPhone.
