Default M DCX died, what to do?

I don't know what happened to it, today when I turned it on, it won't respond. No power, no click, nothing. What would you suggest me to do?
It's out of warranty, so I guess authorized dealers?
Anything I can look before sending it off?

Fuses. Internal and external.

If you have been playing with it, you may want to check the connectors related to the power module, see if they are firmly connected. And, as rfwbr says, fuses.

You say, 'no click', but I guess the power switch works normally, i.e. it clicks?

I switched the fuse from the dcx with the fuse from my deq, still nothing. The turn on switch clicks and everything, but still no power. I opened up the case, for the first time, and find that the yellow capacitor-like has a bit of smell to it (it has a warning label of high voltage). Nothing else on the boards seems burnt. The cables are tighly fit into their plugs.
