No sign of life

Laptop power comes on but... it does nothing, it does not make any noise, the screen remains the same, their is no sign of life except for the power lights. I suspect the System board has gone bad. Can anyone confirm that or tell me what the problem is? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Paula

It wont turn on when charging the red light is on for abut 4hours and then turns green i unplug it and it wont turn on ive holding down the volume + and power button and still nothing

tablets are designed to be throwaway.
you can buy new batteries off ebay but replacing the battery will require cutting and soldering as the batteries in these tablets are soldered directly to the board and are stuck in place with glue and electrical insulating glass tape. Not a big job but fiddly and anyone with a soldering iron skill and basic leccie-tronics can do it.
it may be the battery - when you press the power button does the screen flicker or does the green power light come on.

pressing the power button whilst pressing the up or down volume button should take you into recovery mode - do this whilst the power block is plugged in - if the tablet shows signs of life with the power block plugged in you can be sure its the battery..

when tablets are vroken its usually by being dropped and this can cause the screen connector to come loose so you get no display but power lights will still be on.

How to maximise your iPad battery life?

And while the iPad may have a fairly long battery life, you're still going to need a few tips on how to keep it lasting as long as you can. Here are some hints on how to perverse the iPad between charges:

In the "settings" folder there is an option to turn down the screen brightness. Keeping it down a little won't ruin your experience and will help prolong life.
Turn off 3G and WiFi services when they aren't needed. You'll only need them when connecting to networks or downloading/browsing data, so turn them off when you can.
Make sure apps aren't running in the background when they don't have to. Turning apps off from the multitasking tray can save you some juice.
Run the battery out every few weeks. Giving the iPad a full charge will ensure it remains in good condition.
Turn the screen off. When you aren't using your iPad, then turn the screen off and don't waste any unnecessary power.

it is dead easy. just get a paperclip and open one side of it, now look on the side of the 97 there is small hole between the USB port and the flash sd card, insert the paperclip end an hold until the system resets itself.
All will come back to life after pressing the power button..
No data wil be lost, I have done it lots of times.

Tablet has not been used for long time. It was given to me. Battery is empty for sure. When I connect PC to the power suppy it does not show any sign of life. No light - nothing. I tried the same without...

The power adapter may be faulty.
Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Jensen NVZ225 doesn't show any signs of power, from car or home

Just a guess here! But i think you have battery failure ( not sure what you mean by let it sit up for a while..) You could try leaving it on thw AC charger overnight. If a battery is totally depleted it will take some time before enough charge is accumulated to operate the screen
