    Did you try a hard rest of the phone? If not, do it.

    Next, when you need assistance concerning software it is useful to pony up some information first:
    • Mac or PC
    • What OS?
    • What version of iTunes?
    • Are you connected via USB? (this isn't as obvious as some may think)
    • Are you connected via a USB hub or directly into your machine?
    • Does the phone turn on at all?
