Default Won't turn on~

Please Login to Remove!

My pearl won't turn on. I got it, worked fine for 2 days then kaput! I was texting, the screen went white and now it won't even turn on. I tried pulling the battery and restarting it but it won't work. When I put the battery back in the light it a steady red for a few seconds but the screen stays black. When I put it on the charger the light is a steady green. I didn't drop it and it didn't get wet. Any ideas?
