Did you try booting from a LinuxLiveCD or the Windows Installation media?

So this seems to be a common problem...mine died as well. The powerbutton/red dot lights up, the touchbar works and the keyboard lights up. The fan spins 3-5 seconds and thats it. No image on screen whatsoever. I'll try a new CMOS battery. Mine is still reading 2.75V but the new one isnt expensive at all so it might be worth a try.
