Switch 5 sw512-52p power on but black screen

My battery on my Acer Switch 5 went dead last night while I was on it, and so I plugged it in to charge.  This morning, the power button is lit up, but I have a black screen. The blue light on the side remains on, indicating that it is still on. Pressing down the power button does not lead to any changes; also it didn't do anything if I pressed it in combination with the volume button up or volume button down.

    Disconnect the power then press and hold the power button until the blue goes out. That should be in forced shutdown mode then. Plug power back in and wait for an hour or two so it has a chance to charge if it can. Then try turning it back on.

    Your model number will be something like SW5xx-xxx-xxxx. There are probably hundreds of different models that meet those specs.

    That is about the correct price for a replacement display. :(

    That's a weird one! How would the table you place it on make a difference? Is it maybe that the display works when running on battery but not with the power plugged in?
