I have a Sylvania tablet that someone let me play with to see if I could fix. They had dropped it and it was stuck and the screen that just read android and nothing else. I took it apart to see if any connections inside had come loose when it was dropped and could not find anything. I also examined the board for anything obvious. I put it back together and tried see if I could do a restore on it. First I got the no recover image error, so I needed a recovery image from somewhere else. No computer I plugged it into would detect the thing, I tried Win 7, XP, Linux, and Mac. So I decided to try and make a recovery SD card using the InfoTM software. The only problem was I didn't know which version of the tablet I had so I didn't know which recovery image to use. I tried a few but would get an error stating that the image was not meant for this device. Eventually I found one that would flash and it went through the process and then told me to remove the card and reboot the tablet. I tried but now it does not even turn on at all. I mean seriously no power at all not one thing on the screen. The battery isn't dead I tried charging it, but absolutely nothing shows on the screen ever no matter what combination of buttons I try. I am just posting this to see if anyone has gotten their Sylvania tablet in this state before and if so were they able to recover, or is it finally bricked entirely? I just find it surprising that there is nothing on the screen at all it just doesn't seem to power on. No evidence that the back-light is even coming on. Thanks guys for any comments. Sorry if this type of lockup has been mentioned all the ones I saw were lockups where the device was stuck on a particular screen, I couldn't find one where the device didn't respond at all to being powered on.
