XPS 13 9350 won't boot, screen black

The three little power lights come on (on the cord plug, on the I/O button, on the front bezel) but nothing else happens.  No heat, no screen, no bios options (F2, F12).  Battery indicator shows it has charge.    It only went off warranty coverage 4 months ago.   Do I have to buy a dock to see if it will boot on an external monitor?   Or is there another possible way to revive it?

Hi qvoice,

This system has diagnostics leds i.e. bicolor power button LED. A specific blink pattern is followed by flashing a pattern of flashes in amber, followed by white. The pattern then repeats.

Is there any specific pattern followed by the power button LED? Can you feel the fan spinning?
