Connect the iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. If iTunes is able to recognize the iPhone, you can navigate to the "Restore" option in the iPhone's information settings in iTunes to restore the phone to its original settings.
If after troubleshooting and restoring the issue is still not resolved, you can try entering the phone into recovery mode. To enter recovery mode, disconnect the iPhone from your computer and power it off by holding the sleep/wake button until the slider appears to power the phone off. If the phone will not turn off, press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons at the same time and release when the screen is black. Once the device is off, press and hold the home button and plug the phone into your computer. Continue to hold until the "Connect to iTunes" screen appears. While iTunes is open, the recovery mode alert will appear and you can now use iTunes to restore the device.
Restoring an iPhone will erase all user content on the device, but any previously saved backup can be restored through iTunes.
