Bamboo Slate charges but won't turn on

Postby Bigwaff » Sun 4. Oct 2020, 19:46

My daughter's Bamboo Slate will charge (at least while plugged into USB port the red light comes on and stays on for some time before turning off ... fully charged perhaps?) but won't turn on by pressing the multi-function button. Prior to this, the device wouldn't turn off. The green LED above the multi-function button stayed on regardless of any button pressing length or pattern. I ended up resetting the device using the pin hole beside the USB charging port. Both LED's blinked (I think.. at least the bottom one did) and the LED above the multi-function button turned off. Now, the multi-function button does not turn on the device. Is there anything I can do? Is this device bricked?
