Using the new battery charge the BlackBerry with a wall charger. Leave it for an hour. While it is still plugged in, remove the battery and then replace the battery. See if the BlackBerry boots. If so, leave it to finish charging.
You might also check and make sure the battery is tight in the compartment. The contact pins on the BlackBerry should be clean and not corroded. Make sure the pins are not bent out of place.
