Won't turn on, no vibration when in silent, but detected by iTunes

My iPhone 6 Plus has a screen problem, it sometimes flickers. Last night I watched Youtube videos about the remedies of issues just like with my iPhone's case. One video instructs to the viewers that it should be forced restart by holding the home and power button together. So I followed it, but my iPhone never turned on. I connected it on iTunes and it was detected. I restored my iPhone but nothing happened. What should I do?

Has your screen been replaced recently or has any other repair taken place on your device? Has it been dropped or otherwise damaged?

If you can't see anything on the screen but iTunes recognizes your phone, then you have a backlight issue. Shine a bright flashlight on the screen after pushing the Home button; do you see a very dim image? If you can, then this could be a screen problem or a backlight driver circuit issue on the logic board.

The only way to isolate that is to try a known-good screen. If the problem is on the logic board, then this will require a micro-soldering repair and is not DIY.
