It had not been dropped or gotten wet. I didn't write the error codes down, but I did share them with the apple rep and she seemed to think it was a hardware issue. She couldn't tell me exactly what, though. My computer recognizes it, but the screen will not come on no matter what I do. I've tried holding down the home and power buttons both while connected and disconnected. It says to erase and restore it, but I've tried this 6 or 7 times and every time it's almost finished restoring, it says it's unable to restore.
