Default Dead xperia u

Hi guys, i m having an xperia u running ics. it fell from my hands and froze so i took the battery out to restart, since then i cant turn on my phone when i press the power button it just vibrates once an there is backlight on the screen but nothing else not even the sony logo. Sometimes the illumination bar flashes green. i tried everything from removing the battery several times to flashing. the flashing proccess completes with no errors but the problem is still there. Any ideas? i have no custom roms or so only rooted with flashtools...

Thank you for your answer, but i m pretty sure that the screen is not damaged maybe motherboard, although i would like to be sure that there is no software problem if possible... from what i have read when the sony logo doesnt appear means that the kernel is dammaged... is there any way to flash xperia u stock kernel first and then flash the firmware? also i had asked sony to give me the code to unlock the bootloader, but i never used it and didnt unlocked it, have i lost my warranty only for asking for the code?

Your warranty is still valid. I suspect your motherboard is damaged. But since u dropped it means warranty is gone

Finally, the problem was the screen and the touchpad, they changed both at the service point under warranty, as they had no obvious damage i guess... is this a common problem with st25?
