Signed up for the forum to research my problem but it seems a lot of people have the same problem.. Do you think Microsoft will issue a recall for those of us who are having the power black screen issue?? They should.. I called them and they said mine was out of warranty to try the reset.. this is just crazy to think a SP3 just over 1yrs old will not work correctly. I have tried MS recommendations by holding down power for 30 secs.. then power + volume.. sometimes it will come back on.. sometimes it will not.. I have to keep trying for 15minutes or more before it will finally come on.. I have researched and turned off fast-start... turned off SLEEP and turned on Hibernation.. nothing seems to cure this problem.. When I do get it turned on it will work fine.. It shows it is 95% charged.. this is driving me crazy because I cannot rely on it to use it on a daily basis.. however my old ipad 2 still works fine and i rarely use it.. If there isn't a petition for a recall we should make one.. I see SP4s now with the same issues.. when does it stop?? anyone else having this issue..
