so me , my brother , sister and dad got pipo s1's for christmas and they worked great on christmas day, i flashed mine, my dads and my brothers with tnt rev 3 at atleast 30% battery and they work but i forgot to check my sisters battery before flashing but had it on the charger just in case like the others and when it turns on you see the pipo logo and the brightly colored X then the display goes black but the backlight is still on. did i brick it?, i also tried charging it over night and turning it on still no effect and i tried flashing it with TNT about 4 times to make sure it wasnt a bad flash, any ideas?

update:

tried flashing with a stock rom, basicly just got to see a different boot screen before the display went black.

Try to re-charge ; try another cable, another USB port, even another PC ... Don't give up !
LE : Use "restore" button, not "upgrade" ...

update:

hit restore on the stock firmware and instead of hitting minus when plugging it in it connects to my computer and gives the pink square but when i hit switch it just hangs, also still has a black screen after boot animation

final thoughts

ended up flashing with the tnt 3 one last time, and we messed with pulling the power cable in and out for about 6 hours. finally got it to boot up, operating system worked fine however we have reason to believe the battery was short circuited/faulty ended up buying a new tablet for her on aliexpress much cheaper, do not buy from androidtabletbay.com if you expect to have customer service. the other 3 tablets worked flawlessly after the flash, in the end i'd still recomend a pipo s1 to anyone as its the cheapest tablet that can compete with a nexus 7
