I've seen where if a TiBook was left unplugged for a long time, and
both the main battery and the internal PRAM battery are allowed to
completely drain, the 'book showed symptoms exactly like yours.  The
cure was to merely leave it plugged in overnight (possibly a couple of
days) to get some charge built back up on the batteries, and then try
again.  The 'book then booted up as if nothing happened.

Of course, as always, YRMV,
