Try restoring it.

If iTunes can't recognize it, put it in recovery, then restore it.

You want to put it either in recovery or DFU mode. Tutorials can easily be found on the internet for either of these. In cases like these, jailbreaking before restoring to the official firmware can sometimes help as well.

You can bring it to the Apple Store to get a new one.

Really, they would just replace it; like that?
