Try hard reset.
(Settings > System > About > Reset your phone).

If that doesn't work, use Windows Device Recovery Tool on your pc and roll back to WP8.1

Have you tried device not found in WDRT? Have you turned device off and then plug in to wdrt. Sometimes when it vibrates (turns on) wdrt will pick up the bios and detect allowing you to roll back. I've done this a few times with problem phones and eventually it works
