Hi all

Just bought this brand new tablet :

-------

Thing is, I'm assuming it's got a completely dead battery. So I plugged it in, waited about 10 mins for it to get the charge going properly, but when I tried to switch it on, nothing happened.

Am I supposed to leave it for longer until it does switch on ?

Thanks in advance.

It can take a while for it to power on. If it does come on after an hour, I'd suggest it's DOA.

Thanks. And I've read somewhere that the charger that comes with that particular tablet is pretty weak - i.e. it can a few hours at least for it to get things going.

Also when I hold the 'power on' button for a few seconds, a red-coloured battery shows (also for a few seconds) then disappears.

So do you think it's not completely DOA ?

If it shows the battery power percentage while it's charging, then I'd leave it on charge till it gets to 100%. Or, of course, till you get a "fully charged" message.

It's worked

I guess I was a little too impatient
