It's in the top post in this forum so a short version. Power off, remove AC, battery, press and hold the power button 60 seconds, release, battery then AC and re-test.

I googled my situation and and it pointed to it being a problem with the inverter. Well it was under warranty and it turned out to be a bad LCD cable that connects to the inverter.
