I've got a weird issue. I was updating a rom and when finished and booted out of the recovery everything seemed normal. Was seeing the normal "Android is updating" message from the dalvik/cache being wiped and it made it through about half it and then everything went blank. Now the tablet is totally unresponsive and will not turn on, boot into recovery, bootloader or download mode.

I did however find a way to get it to boot into download mode. It will not boot into download mode plugging it into to my desktop's usb ports while holding the volume up/down buttons but will boot into download mode while plugging into the wall wart. I can not unplug it from the wall wart and transfer to the computer to run the LG recovery so this now leaves me stuck/stumped.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Try booting in recovery mode using vol down + power button to see if you can get back to your custom recovery to flash back your good rom or previous back up. Search the forum for the proper sequencing of how's to push the buttons to get into your custom recovery.

Good luck.
