Those symptoms will be a hardware failure.
Probably due to electrolytic capacitor failures in the power supply area.

More components may now be involved given it has ceased functioning altogether.

It would require proper bench attention to sort out.

Thank you for your response what sort of cost am I looking at is it worth doing or should I just bin it

That sort of repair is not usually unduly expensive, as typically no expensive parts are involved.... but obviously it is impossible to be certain.
