Stuck in Restore Mode

After installing new battery purchased from iFixit, my phone is stuck in restore mode.

After installing new battery without any problems, phone turned on and screen showed the plug into iTunes image. When plugged in, iTunes states has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. I click on OK, the new iOS update was downloaded and I get a bunch of messages that software recovered.... phone shows screen of updating, then turns off.

When power restored, I get the same message that iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

I've tried several USB cables, two different computers, placed old battery in phone, checking connections but I get this same message.

Any help would be appreciated.

Inspect the logic board for mechanical damage. The board could have been damaged

The phone is damaged, I took it to the Apple store and the genius could not get the power button to work.

Any suggestions on how to try and solve this?
