JWIN 700 from Jointech

Well, seems that my brand-new JWin 700 was bricked few days after I received it. I didn't do anything special except reading manga on it and testing a few video format on it which is terrible, switch it off as usual before I go to sleep and the next day it won't boot anymore.

I have the power light and nothing else. If I plug in the charger ,I get a charging light too. The screen won't turn on, and there is no sign of activity when I connect the device to a PC. Seems like a true brick.However, the back of the device is warm. the engine still running?

The reset button doesn't help, soft reset,hard rest. Switching on without battery but connect to power source. Take out memory card, hold button, everything that You can imagine of.

I emailed the support stuff and they said the device needs to open to change one jumper setting for upgrading. Is this true? Can't I just flash with the firmware or least going backward flash it with JE200 software? or turn it into android? I'm not a techie guy, so help in this matter greatly appreciated.

Right now, I don't fancy the idea of sending back the device to them. It is so much of a hassle. But, I'm still waiting feedback from the support since they said they're trying to find a way to upgrade without sending back to em.

Cross fingers guys..

7 days and nothing from Jointech. Not even a single email! I even sending em email every 2 days asking the status of my case.

This really getting on my nerve. Anyone here can give me a light to my misery? Please, it is a heart wrenching seeing the device lay down motionless wasted.

Thanks

My JE100 is still working like a charm... Mostly these oems are a hit and miss gamble.

(I only need to replace the battery, it's running out...)
