what makes you sure it is the power ic? did they open the phone and check all the components or is it just their guess. No point paying for something if you're not sure it's the problem

Do the usual and start from the beginning. Reset, hold both Home and Power buttons until the iPhone begins to turn on, usually less than 20 seconds time. If nothing do the same while on Wall Charger, again Reset. If nothing, then with iTunes open, hold Home button and connect iPhone to computer, keep holding home button until iPhone is recognized in Recovery Mode, usually less than 20 seconds time. Then Restore iPhone. If nothing, perform DFU Mode Restore.

If none of the above will work for you, make sure that your USB cable is okay, that your dock connector does not have any bend or corroded pins. After that the first thing I'd consider is a new battery.
