I noticed this problem when the top screen connection was damaged/hinge broke. Initially the screen worked but turned off intermittently, then the ribbon was damaged and the unit refused to power up... much as you describe. The LCD itself was undamaged, damage was only to the ribbon but you'll need the entire top screen.
