Have you tried plugging it into your computer and seeing if this helps at all?

If you plug the phone into the charger, wait 5 minutes, then press power button as usual.  If that did not turn on the phone, then try pressing and holding power for 15 or more sec

Re: s8 will not turn on

I had the same problem last weekend.  My phone automatically restarts every Saturday night.  I woke up Sunday and my phone appeared to be bricked.  I tried to charge it with different cables and nothing worked.  Finally figured it was toast and bought a new phone.  After sitting about 24-48 hours I tried once again to press the down volume and power keys and this time I got a strange pulsing circular display with about a 0% (or very low) in the middle.  I charged it up and was able to turn it on like usual.  I went through and made fresh backups, then tried another restart.  It shut down and now appears to be bricked again.  I think I received an update a few weeks ago, so I'm assuming the issue is with the update.  

 

Did you ever get yours to turn back on?

Yes, It's working fine now without any issue. I tried for around 4 hours and tried wireless charger and one time when trying wireless chrger i got circular display with 0% then i kept in charging till 20%.

This is off topic but how are you writing this without a Samsung device if you phone is off.
