Try holding the power button down longer, 15 sec. minimum, 30 sec. if 15 doesn't work.

also verify that there is not a problem with the charger - plug another usb device into it and see if it charges - lastly, where you plug the cable into your tablet in the micro usb port does it seem "secure" and not loose - some have had issues with the charging port...
Same problem here. wont turn on and that force start thing doesnt do anything at all. but as i understand vizio will replace it?
What kind of tablet are you having problems with?
Let me guess... the OP is posting in the Vizio Tablets thread of this forum. Vizio has currently shipped only one hardware version of only one tablet, the VTAB1008.

You never know and it doesn't hurt to ask. But thanks for your two cents.

Had the same problem with mine. this tablet like many other electronics is voltage particular and just plugging any charger that fits the port won't necessarily work. You need to have the correct charger or at least one that is putting out the same or a comparable amount of power as the one that came with the VTAB.
I unplugged the charger that I had on it and plugged it in to the charger that came with my Kindle Fire and let it sit for a few hours and that did the job.
You just need to be sure that the charger is putting out enough power. A charger that fits but is for your phone may just not be producing enough gogo juice for your tablet.

I also encounter such issue. The led is flashing orang and green. I make the pad a little warmer, the led turns total green few hours later. But it still can't be turned on.
