    same problem, i turned it off while i was in a no mobiles area at work, turned it on again when i got home and it turned on ok, but a few minutes later the screen flashed, then went black and now it won't turn on. i'm currently trying to charge it for ages to see if that helps.

I just called Verizon Wireless who said that the phone may need to be charged completely for a few hours. Try taking the battery out and putting it back on as well.

sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
