    Touchpad when it worked ran Android. Plugged into the wall charger. Black screen no sign of life. Hold the ON button or any combination of buttons. A logo flashes on screen then comes up a symbol of electric power plug. Bright at first then dimmer finally goes off back to black screen.
    How do I revive this Touchpad.
    Thanks,
    Nathan

    I did hold any combinations of buttons but I think that I just figured it out.
    I think that the cable to TP connection is the problem. I wiggled the plug and the TP came on and started charging.
    I propped it up in that position and will see if it recharges the battery. The cable to TP connection always looked flimsy to me.
    Will let it charge overnight and see what happens.
    Thanks,

    A few days ago my Touchpad suddenly developed the same symptoms as yours. It was plugged into the charger at the time. I'm suspicious that many uses are haveing the same problem at the same time. Have you succeded in restarting your Touchpad?
