If that doesn't work then remove the hard disk to see if it gets past the splash screen and the BIOS whines that it can't find a boo-table OS. That would indicate a hard disk failure.
Also try to remove the memory module(s) from the DIMM slots and then reinstalling them. That reset the modules and cleans some oxidation off the module pins (if there is any)

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need more information
Thanks

Do 3 things.
Try holding power button down for longer at least 10-20 seconds.
do a PRAM reset, apple symbol, alt P & R keys all held on boot up.
Do a smc reset.
