Do you see the charging light at all?
Try plugging the phone into the pc via usb. Press and hold volume up and power until you hear a ding on the pc, might take a while.

I had the same problem after I did a dirty flash of a new ROM. Phone went black and didn't want to reboot anymore. What I did was to connect the phone via USB with the PC first. Then I tried combination of holding the power button for 20 sec. After that holding the Volume up key first then pressing together with the Power button and also hold it for 10-15 sec. After cycling that for 2-3 times finally my phone rebooted. I have no clue why but after that I was able to jump back into recovery and reflashed the ROM with full-wipe. Then everything was ok.

unplug phone, vol up and power for 11 seconds, let go of both, vol down and power to enter boot loader, then choose reboot. Must be unplugged for this

Do you use TWRP recovery?

My phone went black and wouldn't do anything after I clean flashed a rom. I just left it alone once I established it wouldn't do anything and it came back on its own after a while. I was using twrp 2.7.1.0 also. I have switched to Phil's touch recovery to see if it happens next time I flash a rom.

My phone was in a similar situation after rebooting from giving the app "emoji switcher" root access (never had problems in the past).. I freaked out and could not get the phone on until I came upon your comment... Thanks!!
