My Acer Iconcia ' A1 will not come on at all.

Possibly the ribbon cable that goes to the screen came lose from the main circuit board. I suggest you find a YouTube video on disassembling your tablet and watch it. Where the ribbon cable attaches to the board, there will be a fastener that holds it in place that either slides out or flips up. It won't look like there's any sort of fastener there so make sure you watch the video that shows how it works.
In the video I've linked, one could get the impression that how you unfasten the ribbon cable latch is up to the user (slide it or flip it up) but it's not your option. It depends on the design of the connector.

I had this same problem, and found the answer. look on youtube and search for le pan s teardown. The le pan s is the same model. Follow those instructions to take off the back cover and then find the cable that goes to the big black batteries, then carefully disconnect it and leave it off for 30-60 seconds. Reconnect the cable and put the back cover back on. It should turn on now, but if it doesnt, you will probably need to plug in your charger.
