Okay, try and enter into download mode by holding volume down + power button until you see a logo.

and plug it into PC, restore via Odin may be necessary

You tried restoring through Odin? if you tried doing a FULL restore with a bootloader, modem etc and it failed to write to your nand then the eMMC chip is dead. This is down to a problem known as Sudden Death Syndrome, Samsung are aware of this and will fix your device if it has warranty. Replacing the eMMC isn't an easy job but what you can do is remove the eMMC chip and then use a micro sd card to act as the eMMC.

Make sure the eMMC chip is at fault first though

did you take the battery out and put back in? If no luck try to remove battery and plug phone in without battery do you get anything?
