Check if the power button/switch is working with the continuity tester on your multimeter. Often the cause of these sudden no power problems is a bad button.

hi thanks for the reply, but when i connect charger there is no battery symbol appearing on screen like it used to, i would have thought if it was button it would display when charger inserted like it usedto


Try booting up without the battery and see if you get any signs of life. If that fails, try removing individual components and booting up,isolating the problem to the logic board and charge port/dock connector. Also, you may want to try replacing the charge port/dock connector if it is easily replaceable.
