After receiving my MID7015, I rooted it, installed clockwork mod recovery etc and the tablet worked fine for several weeks. Of course, on my first small trip to test the potability and functionality of this unit as a travel companion, it didn't function. I pulled the unit out of it's Nuvo-TEK slip case, turned it on and the screen booted to the black screen with the boot info in the top left corner and then went to the black screen with COBY in the middle (so the screen is not broken). Instead of booting into a clearly viewable opening screen, the screen appeared white with vertical lines on half the screen. It would then not respond to anything except pushing the power button and the screen would light up with the vertical lines on half the screen again. So, I left it alone for a couple weeks and then called into COBY. They had me push the power and silver button at the same time.....which worked and it went into recovery mode. I then proceeded to wipe everything from the unit and recover to factory setting by choosing item 2 in the recovery console. I was a happy man for a couple days then it happened again. All I did was load Angry Birds on it but it was unplayable.......two squares in each of the lower corners were blank and it wouldn't start playing. Previously I had Angry Birds Rio on it and got it to play after several tries but the complete wipe got rid of that. So, now I am trying to get the recovery console back once again. I think the battery is pretty much drained as I have to plug the AC adapter in to get the tablet to do anything. But when I try to boot by depressing the power button and silver button together, the old half screen of vertical lines comes back and nothing can be done. Ideas? I'm sure the screen isn't broken (cracked) as it did boot up perfectly before after this happening the first time and the screen was fine. I'd really like not having to send this in as I am on an extended overseas assignment $$$$$$$$$. Thanks everyone.
