What ended up happening? If there is a solution you found elsewhere, or that you found on your own, you should post it here for anyone who might be having the same issue.

@superfixer334 , yea, it would be good to find out what you did. Just in case someone else runs into the same issue.

@krisrodriguez - I'm guessing Evan press and held the power button down or just pulled the battery connection.

@danj , probably, that's a good guess :)
