i just got a Pipo M3 3G, but I'm not able to switch it on..

The screen doesn't want to turn on. It seems that the tablet is on (I can hear some lock/unlock sounds), but the screen stays black.


Any suggestions?

I think the QC on these pipo tablets is somewhat lacking. I had one delivered last week. There's no 3G, Menu button doesn't work and volume down button doesn't work. I bought it for the 3G so its all a bit pointless. Emailed the supplier and no reply yet.

I managed to solve the problem..
basically the backlight wire was not plugged properly... on both sides! WDF?!




I'm facing now the wifi issue... I'll try to solder a notebook wifi antenna later...
