How to fix some mysterious problems.

Ok, so now no itunes opening but the phone shuts down completely when I try to follow the steps. I hold the sleep button, then the screen comes on, when I press the home button the screen stays on for a second or 2 then goes off but never comes back on. It is like I am trying to do a restore on it or something. In order to even get the phone back on I need to hold down both buttons again. It does have 4.2.1 on it. I already did my phone with no issues, this one is my son's. mine is a 3GS, his a 3G...
