Probably a bad power supply unit.

Did you have it plugged into a good surge suppressor or UPS?

I have had the same issue. The only thing that helps is if the unit is cold or cool after a long time unplugged. I'm afraid it might have given up the ghost at this point convinced its the internal power supply. The unit has always lived plugged into an isobar isolation/supressor.

Sadly, its time for a new unit. Must likely you had a power surge which burnt the power supply and/or logic board.

Using a good surge suppressor or a UPS can make a big difference on the survivability of your gear.

I concurr with Dan; you should always have any electronic devices plugged into surge protectors. This will protect them in electrical storms and power surges. You will need a new modem/router. Will save you money power bar at walmart for 20 or dollars will save you from buying another $400 device. It is also wise to unplug electronics during a thunderstorm .
