    If issues arise, you might want to place the device into DFU mode first before clicking the restore button

    DFU stands for Device Firmware Update. DFU mode is used to bypass the bootloader, which is where many iTunes errors originate from. Often times if you receive an error on iTunes while in the normal state or in Recovery Mode, placing the device into DFU mode will fix the error.

    Here's a sticky on DFU mode.

    Hello - from the above the issue relates to entering the 'passcode' too many times - here's yet another LINK that is more specific to the situation - good luck! Dave :)
