Did you try another magsafe, what did it do, did it instantly happen or you had slight problems before this, I guess a faulty magsafe.

Does it chime?

If so hold it up when its started up, with the apple symbol on the back towards a bright light, and you may be able to see what should be displayed very faintly using the light through the apple symbol. If thats the case it probably needs a new backlight.
