    My 2 year old Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 just stopped working. The tablet is charged to 100%. When I power it up only "lenovo" appears on the screen. I've tried rebooting the system, wiping the cache partition, and did a wipe data/factory reset from the Android system recovery screen -- all with no results. When I connect the Tablet to my PC it is not recognized. Any suggestions what I can do to get it working, or should I put it in the recycle bin? Thank for your input!

    Is this stock recovery? If not perhaps try to install CWM recovery.
    If (CWM) recovery still works you could consider flashing a ROM. And if adb works while booted in recovery you could mount partitions to see what is (not) there

    If you want to try reflashing the firmware, you can get it from here:

    The "Stock 4.1.1 worldwide" firmware is the one you'd want.
