    My phone has randomly gone to a black powered off screen state. I plugged it in and it does not show any charging icon from the computer or a wall outlet. I have tried holding both power and home to force a reboot. I tunes will no longer recognize the phone when plugged in.

    I have discovered that DFU mode does allow the phone to power on, but I get a 1601 error when trying to restore. I do not need it jailbroken, I have 5.1.1 firmware, cannot download 6 due to slow internet...takes about a month to download from out here. I have my blobs saved with tinyumbrella.

    Chances are, the restore didn't even work and I'm back and forth, have yet to get anything other than the black screen. Don't know how to get it to show anything. Can anyone help?

    What model iphone do you have?
    I'd find a faster connection and dfu restore it to the latest firmware version.

    iPhone 4. There is no faster connection here. This is the third world, you pay $90 a month for 10kb a sec download. Looks like it will only boot into DFU mode...itunes not recognizing the phone until dfu seems to be hinting on that. If I remember right, there should be some progress bar when the phone is being prepped for the restore...there is none. I've tried redsn0w's restore and it works well until it reboots the computer out of dfu to start the restore...in which case it will not recognize the phone as even connected anymore. I'm lost on this one.

    Going to bed, I'll have to look into it more tomorrow

    That sucks man:(
    You will need to update to the latest iTunes version also and then restore it with iTunes.
    It will probably take weeks with those speeds.
