Here are a couple of things to try, they're all independent options. Not steps.

  • Try unplugging the phone, then powering it on.
  • Try holding the power button for 10 seconds, see what happens. Maybe the phone is on, but the device is frozen thus you see a blank screen. This should force power off the phone.
  • Try another charger or another outlet, it's possible the phone isn't actually charged and is still dead due to a faulty charger, or an outlet that wasn't actually charging.
