Have you tried to connect it to a PC then see if the computer can read the phone? Alternatively you can try to do a reload of the OS from your PC and see if the Apploader will be able to read your phone. Chances are the battery is the problem especially if it was draining out fast, it might have reached its EOL.

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.
Good luck and let us know!
