    Welcome to the forum

    - Totally black screen?
    - Only M logo?
    - M logo with any wording on the top left hand corner?

    Charge your xoom for 3-4 hours and try it again.

    Let us know

    Welcome to the forum.Glad you decided to join us. Make sure your Xoom has a full charge and then press and hold the power button and the volume up button until the Xoom starts to reboot.

    if all else fails you can "adapt" a usb cable - I can't remember where I read about it, but it involves stripping away a USB cable, and shorting two pins out to make a "special" motorola cable. I have completely bricked mine a few times and because this cable enables some special engineer type mode, you can then flash what appears to be a completely dead xoom and get it working again. It's a fiddle to make the cable and mine wouldnt win a beauty contest but I've never not been able to revive my xoom using this cable.

    Do you get a tiny red light flashing next to the camera on the front?

    It's possible your Xoom isn't charguing - I found mine refused to charge when plugged into a six-way adaptor (but only sometimes - perhaps depending on whether other devices were charging) but is completely fine when connected directly into a wall socket, so worth giving that a go.

    xoom probably isnt chargin, disconnecting the lead from the transformer and plugging it again works for me its satrts charging again. i am not talking about taking hte mains off, i am talking about the lead that conencts from your xoom to the transformer.

    This has come up multiple times. Its possibly a faulty charger. Please try a different charger and see if that fixes the issue.

    It should be fairly easy to tell whether the charger is working properly or not.

    When I plug my Xoom in there is a white light to show it's started charging. There is a green light to show it's fully charged. If you aren't getting these, you are probably having a problem charging which would obviously stop your Xoom turning on.
