Just plug In a known good charger. Wait and it will come back to life. DO NOT FACTORY RESET. NO REASON TOO

You were so right, as my charger came loose from the wall and promptly died after I left home. Started charging when I got back and it rebooted and I'm good to go. At first, I thought your answer was way too simple, to the point I thought it was a dumb answer. I was wrong and you were right. Thanks!

the yellow triangle is just a general failure on the device. it can be anything really.

follow these steps to enter recovery mode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvDN0UQS...

from there, you can ractory data OS reload. PLEASE BE ADVISED: this will wipe all of your data on the device. you will lose photos, contact, videos, and any other personal files.

if this doesnt work, i usually find that this is commonly a battery. however, it can also be a board level issue.

Scott, sorry but once I select the Recovery Mode, I still get the yellow triangle. I cannot even get a charge on the battery. Someone suggested that this indicates corrupted OS. Can the OS be re-installed on these phones.

should be able to force load the OS through ADB

this is a generic walkthrough on setting it up, but you may need to locate your ROM on the internet.
