Why won't my Nespresso Pixie power on?

My 3 year old Nespresso Pixie (Chrome) will not power on (green lights will not show up) at all after pushing the button to do so. Was working fine until I didn't use it for a few months. I've taken the thing apart in the hopes that I could find something obviously wrong (corroded terminal, blown fuse, etc), but could't really find much.

Tried to hold down the espresso and lungo buttons for 20 secs to see if that did anything, but it didn't.

Anyone had this problem before or any suggestions?

Thanks!

Cole Claiborne since it sounds like your Nespresso is not doing much of anything, start with the basic trouble shooting. Since you already have it apart, post plenty of pictures with your question. That way we can see what you see. For that use this guide

4.1 Coffee machine is not working (does not function)

a) YES - power cord is okay (loose connection)

YES - continue

NO - replace power cord

b) YES - On/Off switch has typical switching noise

YES - continue

NO - replace functional block

c) YES - pump works (press a coffee button)

YES - continue with point e)

NO - continue with point d)

d) YES - both coffee buttons are working

YES - replace pump

NO - replace functional block

e) YES - fine wire fuses or triac on thermoblock defective

YES - replace thermoblock

NO - continue

f) YES - wiring is okay

NO - continue with point 4.2

YES - replace functional block

NO - replace defective cables

Let us know what you find with each point.
