If the device has a charge, the indicator light on the power button displays a steady blue or amber color when plugged in, and still will not turn it needs to be reset. There is a reset pinhole between the microphone and Micro SD card slot on the right side of the device (screen facing you in upright position). Insert a pin needle size object into the pinhole and hold down the reset button for four seconds. Device should turn on.Hope this helps

The above I think will assist for basic reset but mine like the original posters, has a light but no amount of poking the hole resets the devise . Mine wont power on after a acer bios update which appears to have killed the devise. Very poor support on these firmware updates.
