Fix the power button


You could attempt just plugging it in and unplugging it a bunch, I have had some phones in the past that this works for, but if you are rooted I know at least one version of twrp recovery caused my phone to power on when plugged in and it would boot to recovery, from there you could just boot to os. Of course you would still need to get it to power on at least once first, so my guess is you need to fix the power button

Have you tried holding the button down for awhile? Like 15-30 seconds?

open phone, remove the power button board(its connected to the mobo with 2 golden pins, they just contact with mobo, so you can just lift away), and do a little short on 2 golden contacts on the mobo till phone turns on
