Default LG Optimus S Won't Boot Up

I have an LG Optimus S that has been working beautifully and handled this week’s upgrade without incident. Last night, I tried to use the phone and it was unresponsive. Assuming I had exhausted the battery, I plugged it in and went to bed.
When I tried to use the phone this morning, it would not boot up. When unplugged, it is completely unresponsive. When plugged in (2 chargers, same result), the LG logo flashes on the screen. It goes on for one second then off for one second and repeats.
I have tried the following in no particular order.
1) Hold Home, Vol-Down and Power.
2) Remove battery, wait , reassemble.
3) Remove battery and SD card, wait, reassemble and charge for 30 minutes.
None of these have had any impact on the phone. Does anybody have any suggestions? They would be greatly appreciated.

If you've tried 2 chargers, the first thing I would try is another battery. Do you have one spare?
