      Two things to try out…

      1). Take out the battery. Now power up.
      does this work, are you seeing anything on screen?.
      If the screen comes on ok then it will be the battery, get a new one.
      2). Get a new power cable and try that.

      Either way means you will be spending some money to get over this issue. But the two methods listed will be the cheapest options.

      Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
