Hmmm well the pst mode looks like a cell phone and a computer on your phones screen. I had cwm fail on my first day with this phone and pst saved me. Try another port with the usb cable.

Odin will not help, as he cannot get into download mode. Did you read the OP? He said he was using odin...

Ugh. Sounds bad. Reading around the forums, came across a method that worked (galaxy phone) sometimes even w/ black screen of brick. Plug usb into comp, remove batt, reinstall batt, hold vol. down, plug in usb to phone, deep breath, and hope it triggers download mode. Like previous poster indicated, black screen = brick, but wth. Can't hurt. Have read of others using wall charger. Likely hard bricked, but am pulling for you...

I had a device that would not show any signs of getting power. I sent it to Samsung and they fixed it. You may have just had a hardware malfunction while working on it.

On the Fascinate plugging into wall charger without battery and volume down would sometimes force download mode. Don't know if this works on Charge but you might wanna give it a try. Otherwise purchase a download jig on Ebay.

Well, if the screen does not turn on, you are hard bricked. Which I did the exact the same thing with my phone. This is what I found out. If you can get the screen to turn on, then a jig will help you to get in to the Download mode. If the screen will not turn on than a warranty replacement (which I did) might need to happen. Someone is trying to see if a JTAG repair might fix the phone.
