Try removing the battery for a few minutes then put it in and see if it boots

The good news is that it's vibrating.So that might be a good sign.. Maybe try plugging it in to your computer and see if you can get it in to download mode (hold volume down+power)

Have you dropped it recently because the screen might have come partially disconnected from the phone and cause the screen to go off.. However I guess that doesn't explain the vibrating
