The cost of repair is more than the cost of a new one. Therefore, trash it and buy a new one.

I was using my B & D D 6000 All Temp Steam Iron - it is only a year or so old and... without warning it shut off...dead...nothing....will not turn back was not dropped and I am ot aware of any...

If less than year old it is under warranty. Otherwise the heater element may be open. If you take to small appliance store for repair it might cost more than a replacement.

My iron worked perfectly and suddenly started beeping and all of the lights went out and it no longer heats up. It is only 2 years old with not much use.

Try wiggling cable at plug and then at iron side if light flashes you have a broken wire.
