Tablet shut down and won't restart

  bumpkin 14:22 07 Oct 2014

I was using an Android Novo 10 tablet when it messaged "power off" and then shut down.Now it won't restart, shows an empty battery icon then the Green android logo then blank as soon as I release the start button. Tried the re-set to no avail. Charger tests OK and power onto the board so not the socket. I would have expected it to run direct from the charger even if battery failure.

Plug it charge it right up approx 2hrs (may get hot so watch it doesn't catch fire) :0)

then retry

Very droll FruitBat. I am charging it now and keeping a close eye on the cable:-)

Had same with my Galaxy tab, needed to wait to get a bit of charge back in the battery before it would power up (with mains lead in). No probs since.

thanks spuds, reading through the link it seems a common problem. sounds like it is one of the boards from what I have read. I know there is voltage into it. Probably not worth the effort if that is the case.

Re-assembled it, plugged in the charger again and it fired up showing the battery 95% full. I really have no idea what was wrong with it, I did have a little fiddle will the tiny internal connectors but they all seemed OK. I will tick it off and see what tomorrow brings. Thanks for your input.

You can always remove the Tick, if you find that the problem has not been solved
