CAT S60 Stuck on Splash Screen

So, when you turn it on, and the screen is white with the CAT logo?
Yeah, my phone has been on that screen for about 3 hours now...
If I plug it in, the led won't light up.

Ok, so, about 3 hours ago, I grabbed my phone and woke it up.
No response. I pushed power for 10 seconds, nothing.
I did it again. Nothing happened.
So I did the reset button on the back, nothing.
Reset button, PLUS power button, nothing.
Reset, Power, and Vol. Up- screen powers on, stuck on white screen.

What to do?

What to do?
your phone came out in 2016. phones tend to have a life span of about 3-4 years, mainly do to the battery. battery life and charging capabilities will decrease over that time. also it is not uncommon to start seeing glitches and bugs happen over that span as well. this looks like you might have a corruption partition within your phone's internal memory.

hopefully it is not a damaged partition. so lets try a hard reset first:

if that does not work then you can try flashing a firmware update. i do not have your phone, but i found this:

*****UPDATE*****
So, batteries arrived today. Installed, charged, phone still won't work.
As in, plug in, it gives the splash screen (NO 'cat s60'),
then goes black with the charging battery gif.
I managed to get it awake by pressing POWER + VOL + & -.
What I get is this:

These are my options, but I can't select anything. The LOCKED at the bottom looks a bit ominous.....

Also, I've installed everything recommended, to no avail.
Computer doesn't even SEE the phone now!
The phone will NOT power down! AGAIN!
It is stuck on this Bootloader screen, and only the up\ down function works....


******* HEY MOD***********
Is there something to be done about my pictures? I don't know how it goes for anyone else, but this page now requires 5 minutes to load.....

Ok, well, since the problem didn't go away (like the help here did!), I've done my own thing (like usual).
It came down to the POWER switch being buggy. So, I swapped it out!
First off, battery out! Be careful though, I've ripped the ribbon already!
Then comes the Motherboard.
Gotta be REAL careful! Lucky me, I've since discovered this is for the Headphones. No big loss.... I got everything back together on the first try!
And it WORKS!!!!!
