Dead Motorola XOOM Tablet

My Problem

Motorola XOOM Won't Charge or Power On

My Fix

Read on a forum that one person said that unplugging the battery and reconnecting it would solve this problem so I ordered the 3 items from IFixit that I needed to get inside. The repair was a success. I removed the battery connection inside and reconnected and now the battery is back to charging and the unit will now boot up as normal so I am a happy camper. This was the best $23 that I have spent to save my $400 tablet. Thanks iFixit!

My Advice

Nothing to add. I just followed the ifixit teardown instructions and got inside to the battery just fine.
