My screen went black but it is still making the noises of being on. I don't know what to do. It just restored on my iTunes but now is not turning on.

    Try resetting:


    Hold both the home and power buttons at the same time until the Apple boot logo appears. No data will be lost.

    Did you see the Apple logo as SJF told you you would?
