i removed a little bit of the back black cover to press power button directly but nothing happened. so i removed the 2 screws near dock connector pulled out front screen to find any way to restart. next thing happened ribbon cable 1 came off and screen turned off. while trying to connect ribbon 3 came off. i had to remove ribbon 2 to connect ribbon 3. ribbon 3's gold part does not go all the way in(yes i know these is a sort of a switch ). now about half ribbon 3 inside and locked , connected ribbon 1 &2 but the screen is still off. when i charge it no sound of charging.

If I am reading your post correctly, you are taking the iPhone apart to basically diagnose this yourself? I am unsure what the issue is besides that you are unable to restore/update the iPhone as it's going into a circle loop, is this correct? The power button doesn't work either I am reading.

I am not a technician obviously or else I'd be on top of the world, but have you tried taking it to Apple or your phone provider as long as it's not jailbroken?
