The problem: At switch on, the COBY logo appears and that's it. It won't switch off with the power button, but will when the Reset on the back is pressed. Device history: No modifications at all. Bought second hand off Ebay because 'unit wont switch on'. It arrived in its box, with the peel away clear layer still on the screen ! the back has a few marks though. I got it in the post and connected my wife's PengPod power plug to it, it came up with zero issues The unit was fresh as a daisy, either it had self reset or just was never used past running out of charge and the owner had a duff power supply. Curiously, it did have 'Angry Birds' on it as the sole installed App. For the past 2 weeks of owning it, i've added a few apps like games and have played Drag Race for probably longer than I expected. Background of me: I'm a newbie to tablets, 44 years old but not new to electronics with a history of over 25 years. Even Patented 'The Electronic Book' in England in 1997, which lapsed and now look at what happened ! Same username on YouTube - so i'm real with a real problem if you watch any of my vids. I only discovered words like 'rooting' and 'bootlooping' from coming here the past few days. Remedy measures so far: 'Power' plus 'Volume down' to get into the Android remedies page. Wiped all user data - nothing Wiped Cache - nothing That Android fixing screen does nothing at all. Carefully prised the casing away and desoldered the Batt +, nothing changed when left overnight, so it's not caught in a standby powered loop. (System board says MID7033_V1.3) Connecting to USB does nothing - home system is Peppermint 3 Linux, XP Pro available on other PC. If this has 2013 Roms and therefore will totally brick by doing anything, then does anyone have any idea what can be done ?
