Do you know if it's white screened because of a software issue or a hardware issue from the previous owner? If it's a hardware issue you'll need to open it up to fix it. If it's a software issue like an app crashing and just blowing your iPhone into WSoD, then there's an easy solution.

First off, just try something simple like holding the Sleep/Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds and release. You should see the Apple logo. Give it a minute or two and see if anything happens.

If that doesn't work, try putting your device into DFU mode using the instructions here:

And since you're restoring to iOS 4.2.1, you'll need to use RedSn0w to stick the blobs into a copy of the iOS 4.2.1 IPSW to create a custom IPSW that simulates Apple's signing of the iOS even though the window has closed. Blobs are available only if you have saved blobs from Cydia (requires a jailbroken device to have visited Cydia at least once). Otherwise iOS 6 is your only option. Either methods will require DFU mode to be truly successful.
