Cable Box Won't Power Up After Outage

We had a power outage a couple weeks ago and my box won’t turn on. I have 2, 1 in the living room, and 1 in my room. The one in my room is connected directly into the wall. The one in the living room is connected a power strip. Only the one in my room was affected. When I unplug it from the back and plug it back in the lights on the display turn on for about 3 seconds and then it shuts off. It won’t respond to the remote or when I try to turn it on manually.

Here’s the type of cable box that I have and it showing that it turns on. If only briefly.

Swap it out, it probably got fried during a power surge
