Bricked Pinetab?
#6
Well, It appears to be working again.  Thanks for all the help!  All it took was the Barrel Plug usb cable.  I was using a micro usb cable thinking it would charge the battery.  Since I couldn't power it up I plugged in a good cable I had handy as I thought it also powered the pinetab.  No joy, so I thought I had bricked it since I couldn't get any kind of response, except camera noise.  When I got back to my barrel plug cable and used it, keyboard lit up, and then the onboard emmc with UBPorts Touch woke the display!  Fixed up a new Mobian sd card and all is well again.

I guess I'm gonna have to experiment with the micro usb port and some cables and see if it does charge, etc.  I just assumed, which one should not do, I guess.

I appreciate the suggestion and the help!
