A500 revision 5 not booting

I've got a Rev 5 A500 that will not boot - when I turn the power on, the caps lock light flashes green once, then nothing else happens.

Is there any "procedure" that I can run through to check what might be the cause of the issue?

You can recognize problem by color visible on screen: http://www.amicue.org/TechStuff/amigaboot.html

OK - so I'm getting a dark gray screen and nothing else... I've tried a second keyboard just to see if it makes a difference, but it doesn't.

OK - I found the problem - the 68000 needed re-seating
