Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Please try this sequence...note that, throughout the entire 4h15m process, your BB must remain connected to a known-good wall charger (not PC USB):
This has been known to "kick start" some BBs.
It is also possible that your battery or BB has experienced a problem...to test, this sequence is needed:
The results of this will indicate if it's your BB or your battery that has the problem.
Otherwise, you might try to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, see what happens...
If the behavior ceases, then think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
But if the behavior continues in Safe Mode, then you will need to consider more drastic actions -- e.g., device WIPE, Clean OS Reload, BBSAK/JLCMDR wipe/reload, etc.
Do keep in mind, however, that all we can offer you are diagnostic tests intended to rule in/out certain causes, hopefully eventually narrowing down to a most likely root cause -- but it's a deductive process, there's really no way, at an internet distance, to truly provide you with any kind of 100% diagnosis. Further, if the problem indeed is hardware failure (as it may well be, given what you describe), then no amount of internet-distance diagnosis nor OS/software recommended actions can really help...hardware issues can only be firmly diagnosed by in-hand evaluation by a qualified technician.
Good luck and let us know!
