What have you done recently? New software? New themes? Any kind of shocks? Moisture exposure?

What have you already done as far as troubleshooting? Have you tried a battery pull?

Do you have anyone who can load you a battery for a test? What happens if you plug into a charger or usb?

Remove the battery again. Remove the microSD media card, too, if you have one, and also remove the SIM for now. Wait a good minute. Replace the battery and see if the device boots up. If so, replace the SIM and make sure it is seated good. Replace the battery and see if the device boots up. If all is well, replace the media card and make sure it is seated good.

And by the way, while you have the battery out, take a look at the lables. What color are they?

Was that red line across the lable always there? If so, I agree. At this point, if still under warrantly, just contact seller for an exchange.

I'm just wondering, because I don't know, if that red line is a turned moisture indicator.

EDIT: Found Water Damage Indicator (WDI) Stickers on the 8900 (Pictures) - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com for what it's worth.
