I looked over a few threads, and it seems that problem is because your battery is low/empty.
Your USB/power cable may be damaged (that's why you are getting the USB communication error), so you would need to buy a new cable and recharge your phone for at least 15-20 minutes. After that, try doing Power+Home to get it started.
Hope it works!

In order to fix iTunes error 1600 and be able to use the custom firmware, you'll need to put your iPhone into "pwned DFU mode".
If you are using Windows, download the latest redsn0w 0.9.10b4 version (from the official iphone dev team blog) and in the "extras" option you'll find the button to put your iPhone into this mode. After that, you can easily flash it again with your cfw.
On the other hand, if I remember correctly, Mac users can download PwnageTool in order to do the same thing, or perhaps there's a redsn0w for Macs... (never had OS X personally ).
P.S. I'm not sure, but you may try using TinyUmbrella or something similar to exit your iPhone from a recovery loop if it's stuck in it. Might help if you are having problems entering the pwned dfu mode.

Having the exact same problem.
3GS, old baseband. Updated using custom fw with redsn0w to 5.0.1. The phone was running fine. Then all of a sudden it's got this odd looking yellow screen.
No matter what I do, it always comes back to this screen. So if use redsnow to jailbreak, it shows the yellow screen. I get errors through iTunes if i try to restore stock or custom firmwares. If I try to use "just boot" it goes through all the steps but the screen ends up with the yellow lines again.
Everyone seems to be talking about the yellow screen that happened with ios 4 but this is different as it's yellow lines and they don't go away with leaving it to charge.
Anyone have a solution for this? I've searched all over the web and there don't seem to be people who've dealt with this error aside from mrajc above.
Also attaching a picture of what it looks like in case anyone knows:
The pattern of the lines changes sometimes as well. After about 5-10 minutes the screen just turns off and the phone sits in DFU mode.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
