    Well my iPhone 3g has the black screen of death i was restoring my phone and bam! it just happened. So now it won't react to the computer at all i will plug it in and it won't be recognized. So i thought maybe after I drain that battery it would work, so i let it drain the whole day and it still dosent work. But it was at full battery and since nothing is running i'll probably give it a few more hours and try again. Ive seen other people with this problem but i have two other huge issues my sleep button is broken and there is no apple store i know of in gainesville fl. If you guys have any tips let me know I'm freaking out.

    You'll need to get that button fixed, then you can try a DFU restore.
