Aspire V5 wont power on. Power light blinks five times.

Daughter last used laptop on battery power and ran id down completely until computer shut off. She plugged in the power cord and it would not come on when pressing the power button.  Laptop was plugged in overnight and this morning same issue - the power light just blinks five times when you press the power button. This is the same behaviour whether plugged into power or not. I've tried holding down the power button. Tried with battery removed and A/C power, but then no light comes on at all.  I've tried removing the battery and A/C power, holding the power button down for 30 seconds, then install battery and plug in A/C power, but no difference.  I tried a different A/C power adapter and no difference. Any ideas?

    I had an object hold down the power button all day.  I now plugged in the A/C power, and it started right away.  Problem solved.

    ACER and their CUSTOMER CORE VALUES, Would have charged you for that resolution had the customer who posted, didn't figure that out. 

    I believe there is a mfg defect with the buttons.
