You know what they say, once your screen go black it never comes back.
What type of iphone might help a little bit. If its a 2g no wonder why.

Can you do a hard reset? hold power button & home button at the same time for about 15 - 20 seconds. release it, then hit the power button.

Since your power button is not working and you can't do a hard reset, then just restore it. It should bring back your phone.

Open it up and see if anything isn't connected, wires wise.

If its a 2G, Toss that old thing out; really. even I'm pushing 3 years.
