ideatab A2107 is not powering up

2013-05-01, 3:13 AM

Hi,
My IDEA TAB A2107 was on low battery and I forgot to put on charge. So it went dead.I did the following things.

 

1. I tried putting to charge for few hours and then tried to power up. I did not switch on.

2. I tried pushing the RESET button after removing the back cover. No response.

3. I again tried to put on Charge for sometime. When I tried to switch on with the power supply ON, I saw the Charging symbol on the screen. Later on, it went off. No response.

 

 

PS:I tried the below tip from a Forum Post. But no Response.

Try holding down the power button  for about 45 seconds, then let go.
Now hold it down for 5 seconds, as you would to power it on. You should feel the buzzer vibrate, then the screen should come on in a second.

 

 

Can anyone help me in switching my Tab on ? I am an android developer and I am dependent on it for showcasing my products to the clients.

Note: My Tablet doesnt have the SIM functionality. Just for info, if it mattered for the solution.

 Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
             You are on the right track
     So you did:

1. I tried putting to charge for few hours and then tried to power up. I did not switch on.

2. I tried pushing the RESET button after removing the back cover. No response.

3. I again tried to put on Charge for sometime. When I tried to switch on with the power supply ON, I saw the Charging symbol on the screen. From Here just let it charge up to 6%-10% then thats when you power it back ON.

 

Hope this helps,

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

 

But I charged the tablet for 5-10 hours after that. But now there is no response from the Tablet.

 

Is there a way to physically remove the battery and then put it back (something like a hard reset) ? Or what should I do now ?

hi nirmal1212,

 

 You can check the Hardware Maintenance manual here "IdeaTab A2107A Hardware Maintenance Manual" It should be on page 28-29.

 

 This will involve removing the back cover plastic and Base cover which might affect your warranty if something happens to it in the process.

 

If your tablet is still within warranty i would recommend not to risk doing that, just Give Lenovo Technical Support a Call to check your options for service.

Mine was close to fully charged when the incident occurred. I went to Landscape orientation to play SpeedX 3D and went to quit the app. The main screen froze in landscape and was unresponsive. I tried to lock it to unlock it again (iPhone trick) which was a BIG mistake. Tried to power off/on or anything really and got nothing but a black screen with no response from buttons. I thought it was a goner. Tried the trick with holding the power button for 45 seconds then releasing and going for 5 more seconds holding it to get my frozen screen back up. From there I found the reset button below the camera and lightly pressed with a toothpick until it pressed and the tablet rebooted successfully and is now working again. Heart attack over and thanks for the tips.

This post brought my Ideatab A2107 back to life too.  I was playing a game on it, then the game froze.  I then found I couldn't quit the game, or do anything else, as the tablet was frozen.  I switched it off to reboot it, and it wouldn't switch on again.  I tried charging it, and connecting it to my laptop - neither of which worked.  I tried holding the power button for short and longer periods, to try to force a reboot, but that didn't work either.  I found this page and followed the instruction to reset the tablet via the button below the camera.  This worked, and now my tablet has rebooted.  Thank you so much for detailing how to do the reset process.  There should be more information about how to do this in the manual and on the Lenovo website.

Re: ideatab A2107 is not powering up

All,

 

I've had my IdeaTab A2107A for about 9 months.  This past week, while on vacation and needing it the most, it just quit. After thinking about the situation, I concluded it must be a battery issue.  When I got home (BTW, my unit is out of warranty), I decided to take it apart.  Sure enough, instead of using a jack and plug like your cordless phone uses, Lenovo uses some kind of funky, two part plastic clamp.  This clamp fits over five wires that connects the battery to the tablet, two black, one white, and two red.  When I poked at the plastic, it crumbled into several pieces. To make a long story short, under a magnifying glass, I lined up the wires, used a sewing needle with a drop of Super Glue in the eye, and glued each wire back into contact with the power points.  I wasn't a pretty sight, but it booted up!!!!  That was four days ago and everything is still working.

 

This process is not for the faint of heart. It worked for me but might well destroy your unit.  I don't know how long my repairs will last either. Proceed at your own risk.

 

As I say in all my posts, Lenovo was no help at all. Take it to a LOCAL repair shop.

 

Good luck
