Device won't turn on ¶
The device will not power on after pushing the power button.
Battery is drained ¶
The battery is the most common reason why the device will not turn on. Check to see if the battery is charged by plugging in the power adapter. If the device does charge but will not power on, the battery will need to be replaced.
Check to see if the battery is also properly inserted.

Broken Adapter ¶
If the device is not charging, the power adapter may need to be replaced. The power adapter charges the battery so if the adapter is broken the device will not charge correctly.
Device does not have any audio ¶
There are no sounds coming from the device.
No headphones are plugged in ¶
Check the volume to see if it was not turned off. Make sure headphones are plugged into the device and make sure the headphones work on other devices to ensure that the headphones are working.
If replacing headphones does not work, the audio jack might need to be replaced.
Faulty volume button ¶
Check the volume to see if the sound was not turned off. If the sound does not change with each press of the volume rocker this may be indication that the part of the device that registers the volume being changed is no longer functioning. If that is the case then the entire device would need to be replaced.
Device is not getting any signal ¶
Displays "ACQUIRING SIGNAL" message
If there is no signal, make sure you are in a open area. Enclosed spaces will usually weakens the signals.
Faulty antenna ¶
If there is still no signal, the antenna may not be capable of receiving signals properly. At this point, damage to the antenna would cause it to be irreplaceable and the would warrant replacement of the entire device.

Check to see if the device is "Locked" by looking at the power button. If the power button is pushed up, push the power button back down to "Unlock" the device.
