Dead G4 Powerbook Ti

I have a G4 powerbook laptop that I have used just a day before.
The following day I tried to turn it on - nothing
Checked the battery and found out its fully charged
I pulled the battery on the back/bottom of it & put it back in - thinking maybe a bad connection - nothing
I tried just using the power cord w/ & w/o the battery installed - nothing
I thought for sure the laptop would work w/ just the power cord
I am assuming that the power cord is working. When you plug it into the powerbook the end of the cord lights up a red/orange color.
The Powerbook did work fine the day before-
Any suggestions? It does NOT turn on at all - no beep /chime - nothing! FRUSTRATED

happened to me too. i have an Aluminum Powerbook. but what i did was hold down the power button for like a minute making sure it is off. then i went to a very reliable socket and plugged in my powerbook w/o a battery. then i pressed the on button and it turned on. i found it that it was in deep sleep. haha. but yah, i was stuck for a few days.

PowerBook G4. iLove it.
