Labtop screen won't turn on.

I just ran into this problem today with my old OLPC - from the first buy one, get one. I read through the fix, but it's beyond me. I don't know anyone using Linux, etc. to help with the fix. Should we just recycle the unit? If someone can do the repair, we'd love for it to be of use. It's rarely been used and is in great shape, though the original box may not be available.

Thank you so much for any help with this.

You may be able to find a place at this webpage where you can redonate your XO and see that it gets used by a program for kids. See:

If you are still stuck on what to do with your XO send a note to where volunteers may respond.

Thank you! I was confused by the vagueness of the donate page - I'm somewhat in the middle of nowhere myself. However, I will send a note to Thanks again, Sandy, for your reply. :D
