Hello mate,

My BlackBerries have always done this when they have run out of power - it should take an hour or so before it comes to life again :(

I have NO idea why this is the case - if there is mains power flowing into it I could never get my head around why it wouldnt turn on immediately - but there we are.

Hope yours turns on after a while!!!

James

LEAVE it plugged a few hours, and remove/replace the battery while STILL plugged to the USB to reboot. You should be fine.
