    Connect your iPhone to iTunes, then back everything up. After that you can restore it.

    The iphone wont connect because it does not open so i can not back up

    If i connect it to the computer it opens and closes 7 sec later

    You will not lose all of your data by doing a "soft" reset. That would be the first thing you should try.

    Sorry, that was all I can come up with at the moment. Hopefully someone else will have a better suggestion for you. Is your iPhone jailbroken or running iOS stock version?

    This is an important detail and one that should have been included in your OP. That said, without having anything backed up anywhere, I'd say you "might" be out of luck on saving any data. The only thing that I believe will solve your problem here, is to put your iPhone into recovery mode and restore it.

    Do you have phone numbers or other contacts backed up in your emails? iPhones can sync contacts through email. You can restore as clean and try to put your contacts back on through email. Does is work out?
