    I usually turn the power off before I go to sleep, but I didn't this time and I go to hit the power button to bring it out of sleep mode and it won't turn on, it has been sitting on the charging dock for a few weeks now (I have been using it as a deskclock a lot for now) - I have tried holding the power button, pressing the reset button (never holding the reset button), but nothing I have tried works. Any suggestions for solutions is appreciated.

    Any word on Ice Cream Sandwich coming to this tablet? More games through Playstation?

    HELP!!

    This happened to me 24 hours ago and I can get it to work!

    I notice that this issue started after installing the free games from the PS Store.....

    I can hear the wake-up click, but no screen.....I just finished tuning it up.

    Any input would be great

    Try turning off Wi-Fi before letting it go to sleep. It worked for me. Apparently some notification condition turns off display, but you can see the green notification blinking when connected to power. This did not happen before icecream 4.0.3.

    Thank the creator of light for this forum. I couldn't get my tablet started for 2 days and was starting to think it might be something to do with the major Android upgrade. Holding down the power button then pressing volume up got it started.

    Mine's just started doing this too. Power and Vol up doesn't work - pin in the reset hole reboots but doesn't get past the screen saying 'Sony' :-(

    Be sure it is all the way powered down by holding the power button in for at least 10 seconds. Give it a rest and then hold the power button in for 3 seconds. It probably isn't that simple of a fix, but worth a try.

    Yep, tried that. Finally managed to get into recovery mode, even a full factory reset doesn't let it power on :-( Email sent to Sony tech support...

    I got it to the recovery mode and choose to restart... now I'm stuck at the loading animation (the orange lines)
