Slate 8 Black Screen

Just received my Slate 8.  I followed "Get Started" instructions but the device screen never comes on. It is powered up and the activation voice keeps asking me to press the next button but the screen is black so I dont know where the next button is. 


Re: Slate 8 Black Screen

Hello jimbwavs33, thank you for contacting us. We are sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with your tablet.


If this is a new equipment purchased from us and you are within the Sprint satisfaction guarantee period, our recommendation is to visit the point of sale, if you ordered the device on or by phone, please visit a Sprint Corporate store. They will be happy to check the tablet and provide you with assistance. You can locate a Sprint Corporate store and set up an appointment with them clicking here.
