    Help! My Prime won't turn on!

    It was fine this afternoon when I was playing with it while waiting in the debtist's office, and now it won't turn on! I plugged it in and the only sign of life I can see is the little red dot on the power switch! Can anybody help? I don't know what to do...

    Try sticking a needle in the reset hole below the micro SD Card slot.

    What happens if you press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, release and power on normally ?

    Well, I wwent to look at some other posts and found that power button and sound down button thing, and it worked. Then after it rebooted, it downloaded a firmware update, and it just installed it. I guess it's OK....It really scared me though...I've only had it since Tuesday!

    Good deal. What you did was called a Hard Reset.

    I've had that happen 3 times to my TF but it only happened when I had it in a case that doesn't work properly. In each case I charged it until the light turned green and held the power button for at least 30 seconds, if not more. Needless to say I'm not using that case the way it was intended any more. The problem was that a catch on the upper left corner of the case rested on the power button, not all the time but enough.
