    Even when the battery is fully charged, my VTAB1008 will not boot unless I connect it to the charger.

    What does it do when you try?

    The Vizio logo flashes a time or two followed by a blank screen. Plugging in the charger at that point (with no further action) usually results in it booting. Once booted, the charger can be unplugged without issues. Without the charger, it wakes from sleep with no issues.

    *hmph* Sounds like, during boot, it doesn't think it has enough battery and it's shutting back down? When it's plugged in, does it appear to be booting from scratch?

    That was my guess, too. When the charger is plugged in, it appears to continue the stalled boot. The logo appears for some time and then the normal screen awaiting a swipe. The battery indicator shows a full charge and the charging LED is green.

    Dunno. You could try what I did, when my tablet became confused about the battery state, but your symptoms aren't at all similar.
