only thing you can do i think is to leave it off (unplugged) for a couple of hours and see if it comes back to life
(maybe even overnight)

Try holding in the backup button on the front of the box whilst plugging the mains plug in and continue to hold it for 20 - 30 seconds after plugging in to see if an "Updating software" message comes up on the screen, if it doe's let go of the button and then wait. If the meassge dosen't come up your box may have died I'm afraid.
