iPhone 5c can't be restored


I used my iPhone 5c in the car with Google Maps and Siri for directions. The phone was plugged in. We used it for a couple of hours, then turned it off, since we knew the directions from there. When we arrived at home the phone was off and wouldn’t turn on.

I tried restoring it through iTunes several times from different computers. It gave me error code 9. But now it doesn’t do anything anymore (iTunes just saus downloading software but nothing happens…)

Can this phone be saved?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I assumed you looked already, but did you try Apple's basic troubleshooting steps?

Few things you could try to resolve error 9.

Put the phone in DFU mode before trying to restore it.

Try another cable.

Try using a program called 3u tools to restore it just in case its an issue with itunes.

Thats all I got, if those fail then I think it will be a hardware issue.
