Probably an electrical short or other mechanical fault. Have you gone over the normal steps to restore it? If not, start there. If so, take it in for a repair. – bmike Apr 25 '12 at 23:07

I would take it in. Then you have an excuse to go to the Apple Store. – anon173 Apr 26 '12 at 0:44
    
As @ruddfawcett said, take it into an Apple Store and get them to diagnose the problem. You'll get a definitive answer as opposed to a bunch of people raffling off on what it might be. – user10355 Apr 26 '12 at 3:04
