Have you tried to do a reset of the camera? If yes, have you tried to update/reinstall firmware? This may solve the problem if it's not a mainboard problem.
If the problem is the mainboard, I think that I will focus my attention on how could this happen! It's quite strange for me that camera stop working suddenly. What did you do before this problem? Have you mounted an old flash or something that could bring a short-circuit?
I'm really sorry about that.
