try a DFU helper while plugged in to the computer
and by black screen do you mean the device is on and displaying black, or it wont turn on and there is no screen activity?

Strange, software would not usually do that... Have you tried leaving it plugged in to a working cable/PC/outlet for a while?

Try holding the home/power buttons down at the same time for up to a minute, while connected to power.

That's really not good, which OS did you reboot in?

Oof, it has been ages since I messed with this.  Not getting any response at all, not even recognized by a PC is really really bad.   Are you certain the battery is good in it?   Leave it charging on a wall charger for a day, and then try holding the home/power buttons again.

I'm pretty sure that Whited00r doesn't support OpeniBoot and BootLace :(

Also, try to hold down the Home OR the Power Button.
I think that'll boot up the menu and stuff. and then select iOS, and then reboot it when the Apple appears (into DFU or Recovery Mode)
Oh yes. Hi.
I see you've noticed this Signature. Well, all I can tell you is that there's nothing to see here.
Yes, there is nothing interesting here. Just keep scrolling and we'll pretend nothing happened.

Did you have any issues with the device before, such as certain buttons not always working when pressed?
