    Welcome to AndroidCentral 😃

    Are you doing a software update? Does the green robot have a little cog spinning in the middle?

    If Yes, this is absolutely normal and just wait for it to do its thing. Could take up to 1 hour to install + optimise your apps.

    Of course, it you're not downloading anything to the phone, just hold the power button down until the phone restarts (usually not more than 30 seconds).

    Try power/volume up buttons same time for 10 seconds ...you had to get in that mode it's for flashing software

    Sounds like it's bricked
    Take the battery out for 5 minutes , then put it back before starting the phone hold the power /volume up/home to get into recovery to do factory reset hopeful it can get past the bot

    You should be able to force a shutdown on any Android device by pressing and holding Power for about 20 seconds. Count it out with a watch -- 20 seconds is a lot longer than it seems.
