Unhappy My Note 2 Just Died...or something. Help! :-(

I just went to pick my phone up off table...pushed the home button to wake it up...nothing. Pow button...nothing. Pulled and replaced the battery. Plugged it into AC power...nada. I h. sent a text a few minutes prior, and hadn't done anything else with the phone for a bit. Totally normal use all day. What the hell? :-( My battery was at 70-something percent. Anyone ever have this happen and find a way out? This is the international N7100 model btw.

I am rooted, but on a stock ROM...nothing fancy. I haven't made any root related tweaks or changes in a couple weeks.

Thoughts? Help??

Update...when pressing the power button for a few seconds I can see a red light flash in the ambient light/proximity sensor (not sure which is which) to the right of the speaker grill

Have you put it on the charger and try to charge for an hour or 2? Did you flash a custom recovery or make any sort of backup? Maybe something got corrupted with the stock, rooted rom.

Yea, I left it on the charger for a good while. I've read about a few similar cases around the web. Haven't seen anything about possible solutions though. Not encouraged :-(
