If the input led is not glowing it means the connection to the mains inside your iron has got disconnected. Just open the iron. Check the input on the mains and check all the three wires are connected properly. It will heat again. When you were changing to cotton. You asked more voltage to the heating element and possibly due to more voltage the connection got broke and now the circuit is incomplete hence no led and no heatup.
Either the wiring to AC power line is broken or the heating element is broken.
The heating element is tested taking apart the iron, disconnecting element contact, and reading impedance on element contact with a multimeter set at Rx1. If the element has no continuity (circuit open), then the element must be replaced.
If the power cord is fused (like for example in UK), check also the fuse in the power cord, try replacing it.
I had the same problem, when I took it apart, I noticed the theromstat points needed sanding. Just a reminder, make sure to write down the order of wire leads before disconnecting. By the way to test if the heating element is working connect white lead to the second connection from the left and black lead to the far right. Place your iron flat down on a wet cloth ( so that you won't burn your surface). You can also use an electrical tester. If heating element does not work though, it is time to buy a new iron.
Most likely it is the fuse that regulates the heating element on your press that has burned out. All you have to do is open the top, remove the heating plate. The fuse will be on the left, button shaped. Replace the fuse and put everything back together and the unit should work. You can buy a fuse from the company you bought your press at or contact the manufacturer.
What sounds like is the fuse that governs the heating of the unit is either burned or not functioning. You can get a manual on how to fix that directly from feiyue yamata's site here. http://www.feiyueusa.com/Manual/FP202ELFuseChange.pdf The problem is that if you have a psp990, it is not their item, it is a rebranded yamata so they dont have specific instructions for it. After you changed that fuse, i am almost positive you will be able to use your press again.
