Sounds like some serious hardware issues but try a device reset... press the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings (not that it matters much at this point). Yours might take longer... wait at least a minute. If it doesn't reset after that, it may be a brick that you could maybe sell for parts.
You might also try DFU mode.. Google for "iphone dfu"
Also, there are several sites that repair iPhones... www.drcellphone.com is one.
I tried the reset, and the apple logo will come on, and remain on my screen for about 15 seconds, then shut off again.
I tried the DFU or whatever, and I get the screen on my iPhone that says "Connect to iTunes."
It is connected to my computer already, and my iTunes is already open, but my iTunes is not recognizing my iPhone at all.
So I guess my next question is, how can I get my iTunes to recognize my iPhone?
