    A500 won't turn on at all

    Was playing angry birds star wars recently. The tablet froze up mid game. I held down the power button to shut the tab off, now it will not boot back up. I get a light blue light on the power button. The light will turn on or off if I hold the power button. That's it. No noise, no booting of any sort. Is there any hope? I was running the latest stock firmware.

    If you are holding the power button each time for at least 5 seconds, and seeing nothing but the power button light turn on and off, you are likely looking at a hardware failure.

    Sounds like the tab is stuck in apx mode. Install acer drivers on your pc and turn on tablet, connect it with the pc. If it is in apx mode it should be recognized by windows as apx device.

    If this is the case, it should be possible to get your tab back working.

    Right, but if the tablet crashed while playing angry birds, and is stuck in APX, hardware failure probably caused the crash, and the emmc chip is probably hosed.

    I will try the apx mode thing and see what happens. Pretty big bummer as it is. Didn't even get 2 years out of it with light use.
