Good news, it's more than likely fixable...

Bad news, you will more than likely lose your saved pics, music, etc. if you do it this way (I did), they may be recoverable if you take it to a repairer or send it to apple, I didn't bother inquiring, I needed my phone fixed a.s.a.p :-)

1.
Disconnect your iPhone from your computer.

2.
Press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons simultaneously for about 20-30 seconds, until you see a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in the middle accompanied by the text "Please Connect to iTunes."

3. Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes if it does not automatically launch.

4.
You should see a message "Itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode"

After this you can restore your iPhone by clicking the Restore button under the Summary tab and when it is finished you should be up and running again

SOURCE: iphone frozen between white and black screens - not rebooting

The only option is to try another restore. If that still won't work you need to contact apple.

IPhone 4 black screen but vibrates when plugged in?


You can try waiting for the battery to drain then connecting it to a computer that has iTunes installed on it. This should make it start back up with hopefully the apple logo visible. If it is still not working, your screen itself may have gone out.
