When you say you did not get power to the game, I assume you installed a verified good F8 fuse. If so, then the next option is the line filter and/or the thermistor is bad. I assume you already checked the on/off switch.
Is the thermistor burned? They are usually a bright red color. I'm not sure how to check the line filter, there might be other threads here that can help. But, since we've eliminated the power cord and fuse, those are the only two devices left that would keep the machine from getting power.
Keep us informed.
