Dev alpha can't charge and can't turn on.

Received a Dev Alpha device today, charging about 2 hours, no charging led light, and can't turn on device, it just like a brick, something error there?

How long time need the charge keeping?

How to hard reset device?

Re: Dev alpha can't charge and can't turn on.

What kind of charger are you using, the dev alpha charger or a default usb charger? The dev alpha uses a high current charger and a normal 700 mA charger will not bring the device back to live

Re: Dev alpha can't charge and can't turn on.

Yeah, my dev alpha A is now completely dead too. It was working fine, then I noticed it rebooting, then I noticed the battery indicator was red and now it just won't turn on at all. Tried using the charger it came with and connected via USB.

 

Here's hoping I'll be getting one of the limited edition units in about a month, or my BB10 dev will have been cut short!
