HI all
I have an XL live IQ Routes that has been brilliantly reliable until today when it just died mid journey. It shows a green power light wherever it is plugged in but screen is just blank. It will not Drum Roll reset or turn on and is not recognized as being powered up by my laptop. Does anyone have any suggestions to resurrect this device?
TIA Paul

May be a dead battery (was it in hot sunlight for some time?)
The green light ONLY shows it's connected to a power source, not that the battery is charging so may even be a blown power ic
