Switch off the phone hold the home button and plug in the cable to the computer hold the home button until you see the iTunes logo and then release. See what error you will get doing that and let me know if there is any number.

Hello Chris. Does your iPhone have the fingerprint hardware, if so then you may have to visit the apple store techs for assistance. Apple updated their software which locks out an phone if original hardware is replace by a third party. I remember reading an article by ifixit, they replaced the home button from an iPhone 6 with another iPhone 6 home button which shut down the phone. The phone recovered when installing the original home button. If you still have the original battery you may want to reinstall it then bite the bullet with Apple. It sounds like you are suffering from ERROR 53

here is the link for the article by ifixit
