Can you get into Download Mode? With the phone off, press the '1' button and then power button, I believe. If you see the Download screen, you might wanna try restoring the stock firmware. Otherwise perhaps some part of the hardware went bad?

Was the phone rooted?

Hmm, I suppose that could be a bad sign. On the Epic 4G that should take you into download mode. Did you try it without the phone plugged into anything, just to make sure?

And can you get into recovery? Do you have ClockworkMod installed or some alternate recovery? You might try wiping cache and dalvik cache, or even wiping data/factory reset, and if that doesn't help, try reflashing your ROM if you are on a custom ROM.

Other than that, I'm not too sure. I had a Samsung Sidekick that wouldn't boot up or stay in download mode, and it needed a new hardware component.
