Dev Alpha B dead..

Hey guys!


My Dev Alpha wont turn on anymore. It's not a regular brick where the leds flash several times; I dont get any response (screen stays black without backlight). I've tried pulling out the battery for couple of hours, plugging it in the charger/usb and trying to reload the OS with the most recent Autoloader, pressed the volume buttons and the power buttons at the same time. Nothing has worked.


Obviously I woud love to get this fixed before the 30th (for the awesome update!). So does anyone know a solution?
