Yes, sorry, forgot to mention that, i've tried the reset button a few
times, and
it still doesn't turn on. I've tried tapping it in once quickly, holding it in
for a few seconds, and holding it in for 10+ seconds, and nothing.
Should I try
this while the charger is plugged in, whill that make any difference? I
haven't
tried plugging it in via USB at my friend's house 'cause I don't have a USB
cable with me.
