Storm wont turn on

My storm will not turn on. i have tried plugging it in the wall charger, pc charger with no luck. When i plug into charger red light comes on for a few seconds then turns off, battery with lightning bolt come onto screen but will not go any farther? I thought blackberrys were the best???Any Suggestions on troubleshooting this problem?

Re: Storm wont turn on

Have you tried leaving it plugged in for like 20 minutes?

Re: Storm wont turn on

Usually this happens when the battery totally drained out. Leave it for while in chargingand things will be normal again.

Re: Storm wont turn on

This happened to me last Thursday (1/8) and leave it charge for a while.  It took about 20 minutes worth of charging before the phone came "to life".

Re: Storm wont turn on

My Storm did exactly the same thing this morning.  I finally got it to charge and reboot, but how did the battery die overnight when the phone was powered off?  Not just the screen was off, but I totally powered off the phone last night.
