Yes, just like juham_guiang83 mentioned it takes 3 to 5 minutes.

But, I should tell you this 'Hard Format' procedure needs a little patience. I had tried 5 failed times, and the got it working the 6th time, totally twisting myself - like I was doing a reptilian foreplay.

It is better if you had someone to help you switch on the power button.

Around 3 to 4 minutes.
(Sorry no pinpoint time as I didn't time it when performing it)

Did you doing it with at least 3/4 battery left?
If yes, try it again.

If it still failed then probably you need to send for Nokia to reload the phone firmware.

Sorry for not able to help you to overcome your situation.
So far yours is the first "Nokia screen, then White screen" case that I aware off couldn't benefit from performing the "Full phone formatting" on a 6600 phone.
