    DFU is your friend. Or are you doing that already?

    Turn off your iPhone completely - The screen cannot be illuminated even in the background.

    Plug in your iPhone at the same time with iTunes open, while holding sleep button and home button til it comes on. Then it should show up in iTunes, you can then restore.

    Make sure your on the latest iTunes, that made the difference in my situation.

    I'd keep trying. Was it jailbroken? Apple won't fix it if it was, and that's probably one of the questions they're gonna ask you in this situation.
