G5A does not boot any more
« on: March 12, 2014, 08:31:03 am »

I have got my G5A for 3 weeks and was happy with it but know it does not boot any more. After a night of charging, it does not boot normally. I have to push Power button many times and for a long time  to get GPD animation. It lasts only one second and then I have the Android picture with the open belly.
To be complete, I had many difficulties to upgrade the firmware (I had to format the memory several times for it to be sucessful) and I often had to push power several times to make it actually boot. Could it be that the flash memory is defective? Any idea?

Can be multiple things, bad memory, or a even a problem with the power button (maybe it keeps pressed or don't get good contact with the board). Sounds defective in any case, so if you can, I would ask for a refund from the place you get it.
