Tablet won't boot up

Hi,

I just got an Arnova 10D G3 and it doesn't boot. All I get is the "Arnova" logo on a black screen. I bought it on a refurbished condition, it was a pretty good deal so I am ready to do any risky procedure to make it work since I don't have much to lose.

I downloaded the latest firmware from the official website but I am unable to use it because I can't access the recovery mode. When I try to, the tablet reboots while loading this mode, without even showing a menu.

When I connect the tablet to my laptop on Linux, nothing happens. On Windows 8, there is an "Android" device shown at the bottom (in the task bar), but the tablet doesn't appear as a drive.

How can I fix this?

Thanks

PS : It is my first post on this website, so I hope I'm in the right section.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I finally found the solution in this tutorial in French : http://forum.frandroid.com/topic/180104-...

It seems like the firmware from Arnova is somehow incomplete. I installed a rooted ROM.

If you see a reset hole near the power button, stock a pin in it and hold one of the buttons(I would try up volume button) and wait 15 sec. After that press the power button and there you go. (I had this problem before)

Hi,

Do you try to boot it in Android System Recovery menu?

(Press and hold together Vol Up and Power On or Vol Down and Power On keys)

Yes, I do. But as I said above it "reboots while loading this mode, without even showing a menu."
