It's the fuse on the power board,

When you take the battery out and then the bottom cover, you will see that the power button, up, down, left, right arrow button is on a seperate board which the power light is connected to.

The fuse on it will have blown.

You could buy a new fuse and fit it, or if you look on ebay they sell the power boards for anything between £3 and £6.

To remove the power board undo the 5 small screws it's held in by, unclip the red and black wire that go from it to the motherboard, then prize up the small ribbon clip on the motherboard and the ribbon will come out,

Hope that helps,
