Is the Power button literally broken or are you just saying that the tablet won't turn on when the button is operated?

Do you get any indication at all the the tablet has some functions working? For example, when the charger is connected, does the tablet show that it is charging

You may have to open the tablet and do an initial visual inspection, to see if there is anything obviously damaged due to the fall.

Here is a link to the Asus Memo Pad ME172V - LCD Display Replacement repair guide which should be of some help.

When I charged it, nothing would show...

The power button was pushed in before but it still worked. It doesn't work/react now.

Doing both at the same time also doesn't work...

Did I mention that the screen is shattered?

I'm sorry if this information does not help much...

What should I do?


Hi LL Awesome,

Having a shattered screen is certainly not a good start. Presumably the tablet has been dropped

I suggest that you open the tablet as shown above and see what internal damage has occurred and progress from there as to what to do next.

You're going to have to remove the plastic power button to see underneath and actually press it yourself
