another dead X7 or is it in a coma
I had an X7 and was very happy for quite a while. Similar to other users’ experiences, I too had to take the back off and disconnect the power supply because the reset button did not work when the device would not power off and started to overheat. My fix was OK for a year or two, until the device stopped speaking to the PC. I tried an ipad but hated it. I ordered another X7 which also worked delightfully until I left it at home and went on holiday. I just got back and it won't wake up now. After charging for a day, I have just taken the back off and tested the power which definitely delivers specified 3v. The reset button definitely switches power off to 0 v. I am betting it is a firmware problem since I did not know about version 2.13 until looking at the support site. I have downloaded the firmware update but the pc cannot see the device which is inert whether powered by USB or charging pin. I noticed another thread where someone just kept resetting and turning on and off, but I have tried that so many times. Any other ideas?? Otherwise I will have to get the dreaded ipad out!!!
