    I held down my button for 2 minutes, still it won't turn on. I called the company and they said it would cost 80 dollars to fix!!! there has to be another way!

I have fixed my son's unit twice with the same problem ove the last 18 months.
First remove the 4 screws from the corner on the back.
Then gently pry the back off being careful of the speaker wires attached to the main board.
You can't miss the battery as it's the biggest thing there. Follow the wires to the plug which will probably be hidden under a piece of black tape. Unplug the battery and let it stand for 10 minutes. Plug the battery back in and reassemble!

Still nothing. i think there is something more lose then what. when i plug it in the charger i het nothing absolutly nothing. its plugged in to my computer so i dont know is the ampere is a factor.

no screen. it wont charge nothing

when i opened it up and checked the lion recharable battery for its life with a multi meter i got this > barely 3 volts where it needed to be 3.7 v and no ampere reading. meaning its dead or completely drained. meaning i have to replace the battery with a new one for it to work again OR the juice to the battery is getting blocked by the motherboard somewhere.. i dont know which one. but im not going to find it out eather. just going to trash the stupid thing and buy a new one. (y) done deal for life thats all. easy come easy go.

Hold the power button down for about 10 seconds. This will cause the thing to reboot....mine did the same thing. it will restart and should work ok.
