iPhone 5 Boot Loop Can't Restore Help

The screen in my iphone 5 went dead so i ordered a new replacement screen and after i installed it i am stuck with the following two scenarios.

Scenario One: I can get the plug into itunes screen but itunes will not restore and I can get to give me an error 9 and 3194. The 9 is what i get when i try and restore to 8.3 (which is what was on it before the issue). The 3194 happens when i try anything above or below 8.3. I tried the 8.4 beta and the 9 beta and the 8.2. I have tried different computers, different cables, but nothing. I have tried it in DFU mode etc. What the issue is that the phone will reboot and will not load the ipsw file and therefore the restore is interrupted and thus why i get the error 9. iTunes will recognize the phone and the serial number but i cannot restore.

Scenario Two: I turn the phone on and i get a boot loop that is endless and itunes won't recognize the device.

nothing is in my hosts file. The real issue is revolving around the iphone rebooting error code 9 before the restore is completed.
