I would need more information to help you. Any warning messages? Any smoke prior to shutdown? Certainly you have a short in the unit somewhere. You could unplug the unit and check all the final transistors for shorts. If not there I would look at the power supply section for problems. Let me know how you make out.

Sony hvr-m35u deck wont turn on.

There is ether a problem with the power button or there is a brake in the circuit. Meaning power isn't being directed properly. Etherway you'll have to open it up. If it all looks ok check the resistors, transistors, and copasitors on the board. If they look ok poke around with a a curent tester (a screw driver with an LED insid, lights up where there's power) to see where where you're not getting any current. Once you locate where the problem is you can figure out what's wrong. Maibe some on put in a wrong transistor or something, maibe it's the wrong way. You may be able to get some schematics from the manufacturers website. It might help, but you may not even need them. If you do get them you can mach them up and see where the problem is.
