I have an 800XL that doesn't turn on (no red power light) using 2 known good supplies (they work on a 65XE). I checked out the main board and the fuse I see looks fine. Any idea what could be wrong, are there any repair guides for it online?

Don't know if it helps, but Wayback still has schematic files for the 800XL:
