I was not using my iPhone 5C for a long time and forgot a password for it. How to use it now? I left it for some time without a power and the only thing it forgot was time, so now it writes that next attempt to enter a password will be in 49 years from now.

If I try to update my phone, it says

If I try to restore the phone, the following error occurs:

Where are these error codes documented?

    Also, not to be snarky, but is there a legitimate reason to not contact Apple Support other than a stolen device when you get this error message?

Apple documents iTunes restore error codes online:

So, your next step with that error would be to contact Apple Support.

  • I don't want to contact support. If they can do something, then I would like to do it myself.

    Just because you don't want to contact support, doesn't make it the wrong answer. The question here will serve thousands of people over time. That error code is designed to get you to support, @Dims . You'll likely end up finding it's activation locked, and we have duplicate questions and answers on that too. Based on the lack of details, I wasn't going to speculate if you have it iCloud locked.

    Here is two of many answers on bypassing activation locks. apple.stackexchange.com/a/115392/5472 and apple.stackexchange.com/questions/104888/… if that's the actual reason for the error code.
