NAS542 won't start

I have a NAS542 that I've used for about a year (since one of the LAN ports of my NAS540 stopped working and I got a 542 as replacement). Because of reasons, it has been powered off for a few months, and when I wanted to start it again today, it didn't. The power button light came on for a second or two, the fan started turning, and then it turned off. I tried the power converter from the NAS540 (which I have here as back-up), but no difference. Resetting has been tried, but no effect (I guess it has to be powered on to be able to reset properly anyway…)

Any ideas? Or more to the point, anything I can do myself to try and fix it?

    It's either the NAS or (one of) the disks. Does it boot without disks?

    No, it doesn't boot without disks either. So looks like the problem is HW. Unfortunately, it's no longer within the warranty period, so I guess it's lost then… Fortunately, no data loss.
