Exclamation [Q] Black Screen Brick / Android Logo - Different than the others

A pretty girl here in Zambia found out I know a bit about technology and brought me her Tab 2 GT3100.

Upon Power or USB insertion it boots to the 2nd Android Screen, and that's where it sits over and over again.

Upon trying to enter Recovery Mode - I get the fallen android with the stomach open.
Upon trying to enter Download mode, well, I can't.

I've managed to get an adb connection off and on upon bootup and can even get a logcat.
I cannot enter download mode via adb reboot download.

I can get access to the root filesystem via adb shell - and just for fun, I deleted contents of /dalvik-cache /cache and many 3rd party apps in /data

Still, the unit doesn't want to boot.

Any idea on this one? Is there a way that it can be reflashed via an SD Card? Can I push an image via ADB? ADB shell?

If I can get this to work, my days might just become brighter.
