So you plug it in and the red light blinks, it plays the startup tune, then what?
Do the back lights ever come on or flash on?
Does the startup tune play over and over or just once?

Please look closely at the capacitors on the power supply board near the multipin connector that goes to the main board. See example picture:

Are the tops of any of those capacitors rounded or are they all perfectly flat tops?

no

Then you have a bad power supply board that will need to be replaced. Kinda hard to find in stock so might have to go with eBay:
