    I was happily watching an episode of 3% on Netflix. I paused the video and went into the other room to put my laundry in the dryer. When I returned the tablet was off. Tapping on the screen normally wakes it back up, but it didn't work. Pushing the power button did nothing either. I tried multiple chargers and USB cables,

    The batter wasn't low, but I plugged it in anyway. Nothing. I tried tapping the screen, pressing the power button, holding the power button, holding the power button and volume down. I left it plugged in overnight and tried all of the above again the next morning. It was still dead.

    I plugged it into my PC via USB and the PC did not recognize that a USB device was even plugged in.

    Does anyone have any suggestions before I call HTC? I have had horrible experiences with their tech support in the past and would like to avoid it if at all possible.

    1. Unless the tablet is powered on, the computer won't recognize it. (Charging is over different wires in the USB connector and doesn't have to be recognized.)

    2. Plugging in a dead tablet and waiting a few minutes won't put even a 0.1% charge into it. Plug it in and wait at least overnight. If that doesn't bring it back it has to go to the repair shop. (It has to be opened, and I don't suggest that you do that yourself.)
