Re: ideatab A2109 doesn't turn on

When my 2109 did that (no response) I left it alone for a couple of days (no button pushes, not even a screen tap).  The next time I tried to power it on, it worked.

 

I suspect a problem in the firmware (not that Lenovo is likely to admit that).  Perhaps something that gets in in such a tight loop that it doesn't recognize any input (such as the power off sequence).  A problem like that might wind down over an extended period of time (days) such that it finally shuts itself off.  If the display is off, the processor can run a long time without draining the battery.  

 

No way to tell, just my extrapolation from symptoms and many years of working with computers from 8 bit microprocessors to large multi-user UNIX machines..

Re: ideatab A2109 doesn't turn on

Hello everybody, 

I have the same problem with a four-month old S6000H.

I tried every tricks you listed so far, but to no avail. When I push the start button the display lits up but the booting procedure does not take place. I tried all the push-buttons combination I found here but with no result whatsoever.

I'm sure the tablet is fully charged and I used the combination charger-cord I was supplied with Can you please help me ? Thanks a lot.

Re: ideatab A2109 doesn't turn on

Same problem as described by everyone here...identical to what Starria mentioned.

We have had the tablet for right over 1 year.  It's been completely fine until a few days ago.  Charged, but does not come on.  When you push power it just vibrates, flashes white then black & nothing. I've tried the power/volume button reset trick...nothing.  I've tried plugging in into my computer with USB...nothing.  Is my tablet all of a sudden damaged or dead or is there a catch somewhere that something has stopped working?  Any fix to this?

Re: ideatab A2109 doesn't turn on

Exactly the same as above. If I try to power on it vibrates, flashes and does nothing. Had it for about 16 months I think.

What a nightmare!!!

Re: ideatab A2109 doesn't turn on

Hi.

In the end I had to ship it to Medion AG (Germany) for repairing.

Got it back this morning (it took two weeks!!) and it looks fine.

They replaced the mainboard card, so I lost all of my installed programs.

Will let you know if more news pop up.

Cheers.

Re: ideatab A2109 doesn't turn on

I am having the same issue just tonight. I have had my A2109 for only 1 week and bought it refurbished from Newegg.

 

 

It worked perfectly but now gives no indication that it is charging nor will it turn on.
