Well I got the touchpad in today. I plugged it in to let it charge and right away the home button began flashing. I know this has probably been sitting in a box for almost 2 years so it probably is completely drained, but after having it plugged in with the OEM cable and plug for over an hour I am making no progress.
The only thing I can get is the home button flashing. I have tried holding down the power and home buttons separately and together for 1 minute plus and I can't get it to go to the battery logo. I am going to leave it plugged in over night and hope that it will charge up enough to boot.
I also tried another charger that I know is good, and I also tried the touchstone charger. Everything just goes into the flashing home button and will not go any further than that. I am a little bit disappointed, but I am hoping its just because it sat for so long and it will be fine in the morning...any words of advice would be appreciated.
