I have a Dell Streak 7, and the screen won't turn on, nor will the charge light come on. The 3 side buttons on the right side of the tablet stay on. I tried troubleshooting but nothing is working.....
Hiya you tried the pin reset switch ?
Try theese methods if its still locked up

Oh nice....that took care of it. Many thanks....
Where is the reset pin switch?
inside the simcard/Sdcard draw theres a tiny hole use a Blunt pin to push the switch inside http://www.hard-reset.com/dell-streak-7-hard-reset.html
Thank you. That worked. Too bad this was not mentioned in the booklet or even under troubleshooting tips online.
Just got the Streak for Chrismas the same thing happened. When I get off work I will see if this works for me.
Thank you it worked and to think that I was waiting for a Dell Tech on the phone for almost an hour...
Ditto, I received this tablet for Christmas and tonight it shut down and wont power on. My husband is on phone waiting on a Dell Rep & has been waiting for quite sometime. I went to this site and read everyones responses. Will try & re-set pin, hope it works for me. Do other tablets made by different companies do the same? Hubby just reset pin & is now working, Thank You all. Note: Tablet didn't power off & not power back on until after I receive a notification Text from a TextPlus. Once I opened up and read this notification stating I can send Text Messages and asigning me a phone number, tablet then shut off.
I have been powering mine off before I charge. Have not had it happen since. Not sure if this has antthing to do with it.
Many THX! I just purchased a refurb a week ago and already forgot about the reset "hole". Then I dropped the Streak-7 trying to adjust it into a car mount......doh The red light and the 3 touch buttons stayed on and nothing was working to power it on or off. I think I won't forget now......
My tablet Streak 7 is brand new and became wrong without tougching it...
The Dell sible apperar and stay flashing in the background... I wait the whole ninght and nothing happended... Did not came on... I tried reset switch and nothing. What do you resommend me?
Make sure you have it fully charged; if that is the case and still nothing, it sounds DOA and you should return for replacement
