BlackBerry Curve 9380 will not power ON and the red LED light is flashing

I need you guy's help. I was charging my BlackBerry Curve 9380 this morning. When I was about to use it the found out that the screen will not light up but the red led indicator is blinking one long blink, one ong blink then a full stop. I have already tried removing the battery and sim card for sometime but to no avail. What should I do?!
