    Have you tried a soft reset? (Hold down Power+Volume-Down until it restarts.) – RareNCool Nov 11 '15 at 16:55

Try this sequence:

1.Turn off your Lumia device.

2.Press and hold the power button to start your Lumia device.

3.When your Lumia device starts, it displays the Microsoft or Nokia logo. At this instant, release the power button, then press and hold the volume up button. This step should be done quickly.

4.After a few seconds, an image composed of a white lightning and a white gear wheel appear on the screen of your Lumia device. At this instant, release the volume up button.

5.Connect your Lumia device at your PC, this one should simply detect it.

If that goes to the lightning/gear icon you can definitely reflash the phone. Probably by plugging into WPRT at that point.
