If your device can get into recovery mode than you should be able to boot into DFU mode.
 
Just to reiterate proper DFU instructions:
 
# Plug Device into Computer and Open iTunes.
# Turn Device off completely.
# Hold Power and Home for 10 seconds (Display will turn off, hold for ~2 more seconds after this)
# Release Power and continue holding until the device registers in iTunes.
 
If the device registers in iTunes it is DFU and should be able to be fully restored.
 
I realize you state you could not get into DFU, I am just asking to try once more and report back.

I have fixed it with a DFU restore before. I usually had that error when the IPSW wasn't being signed anymore by apple. I had to download the latest IPSW from a third party site, one that didn't have my SHSH blobs attached to the IPSW before it would work.
 
 
 
Although that was an error -1 if I remember correctly. Good call on the hardware failure. Look at the other topics posted, it sounds like water damage or possible hardware failure altogether.
 
 
 
Althought this seems to state: http://www.letskis.com/how-bypass-error-itunes/
 
 
 
Which is my thought. If a proper DFU can be achieved than it should repair it.
