Slate won't turn on

I have bought a HP Slate 7 2800 only  2months ago  for my daughter who is a medical student.

 

Now  slate is completely dead. It won't turn on even when plugged in. We tried holding the on/off and volume keys to reset, but nothing worked. It all of a sudden turned off on its own and won't turn back on. We didn't drop it or anything.

 

Is there any solution  for it ? 

What a waste of time, money and efforts.

 

Thanks

Hello slate_user, Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Sorry to hear about your Slate7 failing to start.  HP has a support page with suggestions for a fix here:

If the suggestions don'twork, there is a "Contact HP" link at the bottom of the support page.

Re: Slate won't turn on

I had similar issue 1 or 2 times. It looks like your tablet went into "deep sleep" and than drain battery completely. Try to do the following:

- charge the tablet (at least 1 hour) to be sure battery is not empty

- push and hold power button for several seconds (let's say 20 seconds)

- release it (power button)

- push and hold 2 buttons same tiem: power and volume down for at least 20 seconds.

 

You should see hp logo   = tablet is starting.

 

cheers,
