60 Da won't turn on. Help please.

I just viewed some images and then set the mirror to enable lock up and turned of to recharge the battery. Battery fully charged and nothing. Tried the powered battery from 240v and nothing. I do not understand why it would go to absolute nothing. Any ideas please.

It could be a broken wire or connection leading to one of the battery terminals.
You could check with the diode range on a multi-meter ( both ways)
to see if there is any connection.

cheers
