I have a very strange issue.

A friend of mine gave me a Dell Streak 7 that he said would not boot. I got it from him and have started looking at it.

When I hold the power button down, the nav buttons light up, but the power light flashes red 5 times and it all shuts off.

I am assuming that it has done this for a while for the guy so I am not thinking that the battery is dead.

I have hit the reset button with a pin, (felt it click) but that did nothing.

Any ideas?

Tried recovery (vol up and power?) and have the same issue... Nav buttons light up, power light flashes 5 times, and it shuts off....

Also, it is not recognized by a PC...

What charger are you using? Is it the Dell one?
It needs to charge for a long time.

Yep the OEM one... from what I see though, I get no indication that it is charging (no lights when plugged in....)... might be a bad charger....

If you leave it on for hours the back of it will get warm enough to feel with your hand.

Figured it out... It is either the charging cable or the slot for the charger.... If you get the cable in just the perfect slot, it will charge.....

Fun...

Thanks all for the help.......
