I bought a G1G1 in the Australia round last year, and I was using it on and off for research. I have been away for several months and I have only just had time to come back to use the device. However, now, it's like it has no power and has no response at all.
the trouble shooting guide suggests that it needs a new mainboard, and I have also read elsewhere that it could be the lack of internal battery power? I am really not sure.
I would really like to use it again, but:
a) have no idea what is wrong with it
b) have no idea how and where to get it fixed if there is something wrong with it, or;
c) where to buy major parts like mainboards.
I have looked through the threads here, but not seen anything that explains my problem.
Alternatively, if anyone is Aus is willing to lend me an OLPC for a week, I'll pay all postage and shipping costs!
Any help anyone could give would be appreciated - I have school kids visitng soon and would love to show them an OLPC, but a broken one is not what I had in mind.
