Default Issues? S4 Out Of The Box

Hi there, I am new to Android (having come from 4 years of the iPhone) ... and just received my Galaxy S4 phone today. However I am having some issues so I was hoping to get some help prior to taking it back to the store (if necessary)

As per the instructions I added the sim card and the battery, and then plugged in the phone to the jack.

When I press the Home button the phone makes several beeping sounds and the Menu and Back buttons light up, but the screen remains dark. I have tried a few things but am at a loss to turn on the phone.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Welcome to the forums Caller1982. Your phone was just getting it's little brain together for the first use. Depending on your battery level that first start up can take a little while. The only time you may experience that again is if you do a full power off then turn your phone back on. With normal use just hitting the power button will turn it on right away.
