Default [Q] Samsung Galaxy S3 Sudden Death Syndrome(or something like it)

I was on my T-mobile Galaxy S3 today when all of a sudden it turned off. It's now stuck in a boot loop and nothing I try does anything. I'm running Carbon custom rom 4.3 and I tried wiping my cache through clockwork and eventually tried factory resetting through clockwork but it always shuts off before I can choose anything. I talked to a Samsung customer service representative and they suggested I send in my phone. The only thing is that I'm rooted and running a custom rom, so I'm worried they're just going to say I'm screwed and that they won't replace it even though Sudden Death Syndrome happens to tons of people running stock and who are not rooted. Any suggestions?

What happens when you go to download mode?

After about 5 seconds the screen turns black. The charging light doesn't go on even when it is plugged into the wall too.

Leave it plugged in for a few hours and try again.. I think I saw a thread with this same problem but don't remember if they ever fixed it
