Also Pablo,
Since you have the back off, did you try bridging the two contacts that the
power button does when depressed?
Maybe the button is bad.
HTH, and good luck.

Pablo,
I forgot if you mentioned it in your original post, but did you try it with
the card out?
I'm not sure how that would matter, but it's another thing to consider.
Also, I don't know if it shows up when plugged in, but if it does show up on
the computer, maybe just the display is gone, and then you could use the
talking feature, if you don't already.

Glenn, I'd take any suggestion gladly, obvious or not. I'm hooking up the
device
to my laptop, I know the cable works but I tried the spare one I have, still
nothing. The battery seems rated to 3.7 V, at least that what I read from
the
markings on it. The tester reads 3.7 V in the battery wires, and it goes up
to
3.8 V when hooked up to USB power.

Thanks bunn. I tried about 5 minutes, until my finger when numb. I'll see if
I
can hold a bit longer next time, but if 5 minutes didn't help it seems
unlikely
more will make a difference.
