You need to let it charge undisturbed for the very least, one hour. Then try again.

What happens when you press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (more or less)?

When I press power button or power button with volume up/down button for some time, red LED light blinks (before that it was alternating dim and bright red LED). No vibration or noting on the display.

It is now showing a battery icon on the screen. No more problem I guess. Thank you for your help.
