Your k1 is bricked. You need to have it return to be serviced/repair. Or cut your losses by returning it and demand a refund. It will save you alot of aggrvations in the long run.

Before you return it, try to have it boot for an hour just to be entirely sure its bricked.

I dont know if you correct that indepently. As far as i can tell whenever there a looping nvidia logo, people-usually have it loop for an hour or so. They usualoy have resolution by sending it the lenovo service center, have it repaired and hace it sent back to them. Usually it has to do with the mobo.

Your options is limited. Lenovo wants to lock the product software wise. There is no way to flash/unbrick on your own. Your recourse is to send it back for repairs or for-a-refund.


If i were you, ask for a refund and get a tablet that will not make you go insane.

It may take you a few tries.

 

What you need to do is this:

 

Hold Vol+ and Vol-, and while holding them, press and hold the power button.

 

You will see two white lights turn on on either side of the home button. When you see this, release the power button.

 

The backlight should turn off entirely, and when you see this release the volume buttons. If the screen stays black with the two lights remaining on, then you are in APX mode and you can most definitely resurrect your tablet.

 

Keep doing it over and over again if it doesn't work the first few times.  I've done it many times before and it still takes me 3-4 tries to get it into APX mode. I can almost guarantee that you will be able to enter it.

If that works, we should make this topic sticky. Let us know if it solves your problem.
