My screen when black and I cannot get the Priv to start

Hello I just received my Priv 3 days ago and now the phone will not start. I have tried the hard re-set by holding the power button down for 30 seconds. At one point it must have re-booted because I received a message that Android was restarting. Notification lights were blinking but now have stopped. I just hear a click every few seconds. No display at all but keyboard still lights up. The phone was not dropped. It was fine when I went to bed with the phone plugged into charger. What happened???
