    First, try putting the device into recovery mode by holding the Home + Power buttons on start up for a few seconds and restoring that way. If that doesn't work try DFU mode by:
    Ensuring your iPhone is off, hold home + power until the screen goes black after the Apple logo.
    Release the power button but keep holding the home button for approximately 10 seconds.
    It should appear in iTunes, don't interrupt the restore/sync process.
