Acer Iconia a500 wont boot. What should I do?

My a500 was working as usually.  I turned it off at night and the next morning when I tried to turn it on it froze on the acer screen. I pressed the reset button and had the same result. I allowed the tablet to sit for a few day and see if anything would change.  Now when I turn it on the power button light comes on, but the tablet doesn't vibrate like it should when you cut it on nor does the screen come on.  I've tried a hard reset as well as taking out and replacing the battery, but nothing has worked. The product is out of warranty, what should I do? I really love my a500, but I definitely won't be buying another one. I know a lot of people are having the same problem, it seems like acer should have a recall to fix the problem.

The item is out of warranty. Is acer going to fix the problem since it is widespread and thousands of Iconia a500 users are having the same issue?
