It's probably the power supply. Do you get any diagnostic lights on the logic board?

UPDATE 2/26/16

The diagnostic LEDs should lit up when you press the power on button if the power supply is good.

There is also a CUDA logic board reset button on the logic board. Press the CUDA button, ONCE! It is located to the rear of the battery housing. It looks like a small pencil eraser in a metal square..

Have you replaced the 3.6V/850mAh 1/2 "AA" Lithium PRAM battery?

I will check. Will lights be present on the logic board with plug connected and the unit powered off though?


Did you ever fix it?
