Re: iphone 5 stuck in recovery mode - need help
Do you have the latest iTunes installed? If not, install it. I'd suggest uninstalling iTunes completely then reinstalling it from the Apple site.
Try this: Let the battery get completely discharged. It may take a few days. Once it's dead, charge overnight on using your wall charger then put the iPhone in DFU mode so that iTunes detects it's in recovery mode then try to restore. If you still get error it could be a hardware issue with the phone and it'll probably need replacement within or out-of-warranty, as the case may be.
Try another comp with iTunes to see if that fixes it.
