Tablet will not turn on ¶
No matter what you do, you can't get your tablet to turn on.
Battery is dead ¶
Your tablet will not turn on because your battery is dead. Charge the battery of your tablet by using a micro USB cable. Plug one end of the cable to the appropriate port located at the top of your tablet and plug in the other end to a computer or outlet converter that is plugged into a working outlet in the wall.
Battery will not charge ¶
Your tablet will not turn on because your battery will not charge and is dead. In this case, you must replace the battery. Once you have your new battery, please follow this guide to install it correctly: Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 Battery Replacement
Nothing showing on the screen ¶
It is possible that it appears nothing is happening because the display is in need of repair or replacement. If replacing the battery fails to fix the tablet not turning on then you may need to replace the display screen.
Motherboard is malfunctioning or damaged ¶
If both the battery and display are working than you need to replace the motherboard. This is usually the last resort so start with the guides above. If they do not work then replace the motherboard using this guide: Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 Motherboard Replacement

Camera will not take pictures/screen is black ¶
