Hey guys... I'm having a problem with my brand new Pad 5. As soon as I received it and opened the box, I tried to turn it on, but it just flashes the first bootscreen (with "Mi" and "Android" signs) for 1 second or less and then shuts down.

I already tried to long press the power button, press the vol- and power button at the same time, vol+ and power button... And the result was the same with the boot screen flashing and nothing more.

Anyone else had the same problem? If yes, how can I solve this?

just return it or flash new firmware
I don't know how to do it (the firmware)... The device doesn't enter fastboot or respond to any command I knew... Return it maybe is the only option for me, but it will be a pain in the @$$, cause I bought it on Aliexpress and had to wait 30 days to receive it... The forum is (was?) my chance to avoid this headache

Take pictures before packing, double box it and insure it. Call the credit card company and explain what happened. Hopefully the seller won't cause any problems but... cover your ass-ets.

    No sense buying broke phone... life has much worse surprises than this.
    This just an inconvenience.
