Power up issue!!
Please help if you've been through this...
The last time I used my Tablet (2 days ago) it powered down on me because of the battery...this didn't throw any flags...I brought my tablet with me to work today and when I tried to power it up, the little white HOME buttone flashed once rather quickly but nothing happens...
I charged it after it powered down on me thinking this would remedy th problem...I take care of this thing better than I take care of myself, no drops/heat cold extremes and I can count on 1 hand how many people I have let touch it...
- Acer Iconia A100
- Power button depressed causes white HOME button to flash once
- No colors showing on the power button at all, not even any flashes
- Will not power up at all...

Try inserting a paperclip in the Reset hole on the righthand side at the bottom. That should allow you to power up. Hold it down for a few secs, you should feel it vibrate to let you knnow it's powering up. Lemme know if that helps!
Also retry charging, looking for the charge indicator to glow.
Thank you both for your information...I did try the paperclip in the reset hole, but nothing different happened...BUT...I realized this one was user error...I had it charging (or so I thought)...the cord was plugged into the wall outlet, but not all the way, allowing it to drain completely and not charge at all...
SO, when I realized the plug was the issue, I corrected the problem, charged and it is now working! Thanks for the replies...it is appreciated, and Rob, you can remove this thread if you'd like...sorry to have bothered everyone, I panicked!
