Welcome to the group.
Let's back up. Sounds like you didn't actually connect to the blackberry and even get a wipe started, correct?
Plug the blackberry into a wall charger with the battery in it. Start with the "new" battery that you just purchased. Wait about a half hour or so. Then remove the battery for half a minute with the blackberry still connected to the charger, and then replace the batter. Does the blackberry then boot up? If so, let it finish charging.
