    What you need to try and do is hold the power button and home button until the phone powers off. Then continue to hold the home button and let go of power. Plug into iTunes and hopefully it will register in restore mode and let you restore. This is called DFU restore mode by the way.

    The phone should not turn back on by itself if you power it off. Boot the phone... then hold the power+home till it shuts off. Immediately let go of the power button so it doesn't power back on and continue to hold the home button.

    Power off then plug in your USB cable. It should start to boot. As soon as it does, hold the home button. That should get you into restore mode so you can...well restore. Hope that helps.
    Don't forget the Thanks if I helped

    That is correct. The screen should be black. When you plug it into iTunes while holding the home button it should come up as restore mode after 10-15 seconds.

    Simplest fix, hold power/lock and home button until the iTunes logo appears.
