Android Black Screen Of Death Real Example


I have this tablet for 3 months and already happened 3 times.

The Tablet goes in a kinda deep sleep freeze, It won’t charge, turn on, reset (volume up + power button), or give any life sign.

It just stay the same solid black screen.

After some time I link it to the charger, try the power button and it’s back to life.

I already saw a lot of people reporting the same problem on Android 4.2, but still no solution.

Does anyone knows what’s going on? Or have a solution for this?

Thank you for any suggestion.
