LG Optimus Pad - No power? Blank screen, not booting up... please help!!


Jun 19, 2012
I bought an LG Optimus Pad a month ago, worked great, but last night it froze while on the maps app, then tried to restart it but couldn't, eventually the battery died and now while charging it, it won't turn on! I get no response if I hold down any of the buttons... Thing is while I'm charging it, it warms up a bit, leading me to think it is charging, but something is wrong, it won't power up!! Any suggestions? I'm totally new to Android and would like to know if there is a "DFU" mode like there is on iPhones... Any way I could get it in to a debugging mode? Any way to reset it? Possibly with a computer?

Any help would be appreciated.. thanks
