This is going to be sound silly but you are holding down the power button for a few seconds to get it to turn back on, right? When a phone's battery is completely drained it may take a longer time than you're used to for it to gain enough juice to power on again - sometimes up to 10 minutes. I would say just wait a little while longer before trying to turn it back on. Also make sure you're plugging it into a wall adapter and not a computer's USB port - the former puts out higher amperage and voltage, which will charge your phone properly. Plugging it into a computer is more commonly used for transferring data and will consequently charge much more slowly.

Try holding down the power and volume down buttons simultaneously for about 10 seconds or so. This is a forced restart. If that still doesn't fix your problem than I would send it out for servicing because I'm out of ideas at this point.
