I also cannot connect it to my laptop, nor can i access download mode anymore. that is the only screen i have been able to access.
I know i didn't go into much detail. but if someone can help it would be much appreciated. also if anyone needs more detail i will be glad to add more.
EDIT: I have been able to get to the download mode main screen (press up to go into download mode or down to cancel and reboot.) but pressing up locks it up again.
