My wife and I received a very cheap Android Tablet for sitting thru a sales presentation. Within 20 minutes of receiving it I experienced the dreaded black screen that seems to be very common. Since the directions seem to have been written by a first grader with very limited English skills they were no help. I wasn't familiar enough with the button positions yet to even log in using the security code I had just set up.
I tried turning on in a dark room like has been suggested in many forums. I would get the normal Android login logos and then BLACK. I tried to flashlight at 45 degree angle with no luck.
YOU MUST USE A LED FLASHLIGHT. Regular flashlights don't seem to work. Once I acquired an LED light it took me about 30 second to get logged in to the tablet and turn up the brightness.
