Initially the tablet turned on but hung on the splash screen.
Tried to reboot and nothing. Now, I get no charging symbol (charger is good, tried different cable too). And the tablet is totally non responsive. I'm familiar with recovery and inner workings but was wondering if there was anything else to try.
Can't get to recovery or download mode at all
Not that it matters, just curious as all as I believe its a dead duck. My question is...was the tab by any chance plugged into any sort of surge protector. If you had a direct hit, I'd think you would of had more damage then just your tab and cable going out. That kind of surge would have blown out quite a few things that are not usually protected by surge protectors. Good luck to you, but it sounds dead to me. Is the cable back on or fixed???
