Need help! BB will not power up.

My fully charged BB powered off (as they sometimes do) and will not power back on fully.  The screen and keyboard will light up, an hourglass appears, then the screen and keyboard power off and the red LED turns on for 5 seconds.  It repeats this cycle every 5 seconds or so.  I have removed the battery and removed the SIM card and then reinserted and tried again with the same result.  No clue what to do.  No trauma has been caused to the phone so I am clueless.  Any help is appreciated.  Thank you.

Re: Need help! BB will not power up.

Operating system crashed.  Had to get fixed by tech at AT&T.
