Can't connect to console port output blank.

Regarding to our newly purchased Cisco 2900 router console port as of today I think it's not working.

Tried the follwing steps for Tshoot.
1. Changing different console cable.
2. Using different PC.
3. Using different terminal.
4. Changing the baud rate.
5. Using USB-Serial adapter.
6. Verify COM port of dev mgmt.
7. Verify console config

8. Pluging in to the Aux port.
9. Reboot.
10. Test all cables etc. to other device and the result itsworking.

Still doesn't respond, Is it a sign of faulty router console end - a hardware fault or an internal loose ribbon cable.

Please see the attached photo for the display.

Thanks
