Default Sure could use some help

I just attempted to odin back to stock ECO5 using an "updated" version of the method I used to do my wife's phone (which worked like a charm) and for some reason the process stopped in the middle. The video said "if it takes more than 10 minutes there's definitely a problem" and to start over. I tried just closing odin, opening again and starting over with no luck so I disconnected my phone (Epic 4G rooted stock ROM) from the usb cable, and plugged back in and tried to start the process again. Nothing. I then (and this is where I obviously screwed up) despite the warning, I turned the phone off while in download mode. Now I can't get the device to turn back on, boot into download mode....NOTHING! Could someone PLEASE tell me if/how I can turn this damn thing back on? If I broke this thing and have to go back to the Blackberry that I saved as a backup (can't afford to just buy another Epic) I just might cry / have a stroke.

When you press (hard key) "1" + Power button (simultaneous) for several seconds, the Epic should go into Download mode. Then you run Odin.

Does this happen for you?

If not (the phone is totally dead) you could take it to Sprint, they might be able to revive it or replace at a reduced cost.
