I tried every single buttons on the device w/ no success. The home button only hide/unhide all the text. Vol +/- can scroll up/down in the menu. Pressing the power button doesn't work at all.

In the system recovery screen, it has the yellow text complaining about /dev/block/mmcblk0p5. Is there anything i can do with this?

It looks like I am running out of ideas to revive my lovely tablet. Is it time to throw it to a trash can?

Some people are trying to do it through APX mode but it can be difficult if you don't have certain info specific 2 your tablet...

Do you have pointer on what i can try? Since it's already bricked, there is nothing to lose to try it out.

Im having the same problem. With all the symptoms mentioned above. I was using the tablet and the browser froze. I tried reststarting and all i got was the acer screen. Try to reset factory defaults. Nothing. Just the dead android screen

I have been having the same problem. I can get into the system recovery menu from the dead android, but I don't know how to select menu items.
I've tried all the buttons on the device, but none work.

EXACTLY the same symptoms and exactly the same issue with not being able to select anything off the recovery menu.

Ugh.

Unfortunately mine is rooted so I assume if I send it in to Acer I will have to pay for the repair myself.

I had the same problem on my son's pad, tried every type of reset w/o any luck I finally got tired and called Best Buy they told me to bring it in and they tried the same resets before giving up and shipping it to Acer for repair. I just told them the screen froze after ICS update and 4 days later my son has his pad back in working order.
