How To Repair Linx 1010 That Wont Turn On

by jamesbachini » August 13th, 2016, 7:35 am

I've had this on a couple of different Linx 1010B's which wouldn't start up. They would charge and you'd get a red light but it wouldn't power on, just a blank black screen.

Start by prying the back cover off. Start in the top corner near the power buttons and push hard against the plastic in one corner. Once you get one corner started the rest should come off easier. Be careful around the little brass connectors which slot into the keyboard as the plastic is thinner there.

Then unplug the battery pack for 5 seconds and replug it in, the connector is the one highlighed in the image here:

Sorry the pic is a bit blurry but it should look familiar once the back is off.

Replace the back cover and the tablet should turn back on.

I'm not sure what causes the problem but it's a 2 minute fix once you know how.

Hope that helps everyone.

Nice, shame they didn't think of adding a reset button that disconnects battery when pressed.

You're a star!! Cover pinged off just like you said and unplugging the power temporarily has unbricked my tablet. Thank you - you saved me £200.

Amazing! As you said, a two minute fix - Genius. It begs the question how you found this info. Thanks a lot - SWMBO is over the moon and I am in her good books for a day or two. I did tell her it was you who discovered it - I promise! :oops:

I have to fair, just had this happen to my Vision twice. I left it on over night downloading 80+ GB of steam stuff.
In the morning, it was non responsive. Really would hate to pull it apart. So I removed power, waited for light to go. Then held finger on power for 60 secs. Then plugged power back in, waited for power light, then held power for 60 secs. Then it finally hard resetted.
This method has worked for me, so maybe it will work for others. It just takes patience.
