Shut down, will not turn back on
My Acer I conga Tab A500 just shut off one day and won't turn back on. The power button lights up when it's on but otherwise nothing.
Android tablet by Acer, with a 10.1" screen, 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA processor and a 16 GB hard drive. Released in 2011 with Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
This is a common problem with this unit. I just got mine fixed this week. From my internet research I found that the problem is a design flaw with the on off switch. The button you push is not a switch, it pushes a lever shaped like a tiny golf club. The "club Face" contacts the actual switch. Apparently it is possible to push too hard and dislodge the contact. The repair involved removing the back, taking out the mother board to access the switch, positioning the contact properly and reinforcing it so this won't happen again. It was more than I wanted to try so I managed to find someone to do it for me, he charged $49.00 and it now works perfectly.
Got the same problem what I dit was disconect all cables except the battery cable then the tablet turned on vibrating, so by exclusion I find the board with the problem it was the board where the USB/Mini USB / Reset Button was, when I disconnected those it worked like a charm so to fix it I removed the board sprayed with WD40 pressed the reset button a few times(I believe the problem was the reset button got stuck or with a short circuit) put the board back on and its working like new, hope this help someone. :)
