"There is a problem with your iPhone.

Try placing the phone into DFU mode then try a restore in iTunes again.

Do the following in sequential order straight after each other.

  1. Plug your device into your computer with a USB cable.
  2. Turn off the device.
  3. Hold the Power button for 3 seconds.
  4. Hold the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds.
  5. Release the Power button but keep holding the Home button.
  6. After about 15 seconds you will be alerted by iTunes saying that it has detected a device in Recovery Mode.

Let me know how you get on.

Try the restore process on another computer, i've had an issue like this before which turned out to be a problem with iTunes on the particular computer I was using. Try using a friends / family members computer.
