Toshiba Laptop Wont boot

I have a Toshiba Satellite A135-S2356. Went on a job to London for a month and even with the converter I still managed to burn out the battery, but as long as it was plugged in to the wall it would work fine. Have had problems with the fan in the past but they cleared themselves up. Everything is original and standard other than RAM upgrade at purchase. When I plug it into the wall the laptop will not acknowledge the power source, as the light will not come on. If I push the powqer button the power light turns on then imediately turns back off. I left it running when I left the house for an hour and came back to it turned off. Hasnt worked since. Any ideas? I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read and respond. Thank you very much.

Do not repair.

thank you for that advice. I was just thinking that if it were something cheap like the power source id try to save it or maybe even just gut it and rebuild it. As you said though this is probably not worth it. Thanks Bob.

I'm calling it

Because of a few reasons. Age, cost of parts and again, age. The story is not good and to have any shop look at it is 120 bucks which is nearly a third of the way to the next machine.
