The battery which is newish is charged. When I put an sd card in or out of the slot the blue lights at the bottom of the device blink on and off but the screen is dead. When I connect it to the usb cable to my computer, the battery light goes on, but active sync doesn't open, so maybe it's more than just the screen? Anyone have any ideas? My entire life is on this device.
Next to the headphone jack, on the longer side, you will find a "HOLD" slider switch. It is presently showing red, meaning engaged. Push it back to the off, or normal position. This will release the lockup.

Normally, you can only insert an SD card one way. Try a different SD card or check to see if the SD card you're using has the "write protect" switch on. If that's not the issue try formatting the card in your PC and then format it in the camera.
By not power on, does it start to turn on and then turns off on its own? I recently had this problem and solved it using a version of another solution posted.
It turned out that the sensor that detects the battery cover is on wasn't working reliably. I took a very small wad of Kleenex and put it in the hole in the top right (holding the PDA upright with the screen away from you) hole and then put the cover back on.
Turned on and stayed on after that.
I checked and my battery cover is not damaged in any way, so the sensor must have moved somehow.
May God help you because in my experience with a malfunctioning A626 ASUS won't lift a finger to help you. They are great at lip service like a lot of companies nowadays but short on customer service.
Did you get the Microsoft Mobile Device Center yet? I cannot get the Clarification Request radio button to function on this Web site so I'm asking about the Mobile Device Center because I have a few questions and suggestions which I can offer if you are still around.
There is no date on the posts in this FixYa place so maybe its a dead end.
I had a problem similar to this, and I used YOUR solution to fix it. In fact looking for you to thank you for the idea is how I found this problem.
Sometimes even with the battery cover on and intact, the sensor does not correctly detect it. My screen was turning off randomly and sometimes would not even get through the Asus init before it would turn off again.
So, looking at the solution you posted I pushed a small wad of Kleenex in the hole and then put the cover back on. It's been running fine for almost a day now.
So, thanks for the suggestion. I had no idea that sensor was there.
If it doesnt turn on...possibly you dont have the battery cover on? Make sure there is a tiny tab that sticks out on the cover itself is still on the battery cover. It can easily snap off if you drop the pda. If its not on there...on the PDA itself there is a little hole that has a white button. Stuff that hole with a little toilet paper...and waalaaa!!
