    Can you go into recovery?

    Is the blue light "pulsating" or steady? If it's pulsating, the phone is accessing storage. (I suspect that what happened is that your "while" wasn't long enough. Turn it off, put it on the charger for about 3 hours, then see what happens.

    If after 15 minutes of a pulsing blue light (or if the light isn't pulsing), see if you can get to the download screen (Home+Volume Down+Power). If you can, you can always flash the ROM again. (See [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN.)

    If a few hours on the charger doesn't fix it, or it turns on, then shuts off after a few minutes, it needs a new battery. It's 5 years old - after 2 years the battery doesn't owe you anything. (They're only $10-$15, or $34 for the Taeozi extended battery [8800mAh].)
