My tablet won't power on

[ Edited ]

I've had my tablet for a little over a year. I think it is an Acer500 Iconia Tab. It won't turn on. Does anyone know what I can try? It is not under warranty.

Re: My tablet won't power on

Will the unit power on connected to AC ?


Are there any indicator lights that turn on?

Which lights and what color are they?

I am having the same problem, my warranty expired in August. An orange indicator light comes on when plugged in but it will not power on.

Re: My tablet won't power on

My first thought after a year is a failed battery overloading the power supply. Can you remove the battery ?
