Hello
After owning for more than 1 year Chuwi Hi12 just stopped working last day.
To be honest, I dont remember last hour before it went down did windows updated or not :-/.
Tablet cannot turn on, cannot charge (not showing charge light).
Things I already tried:
- tricks with power cycle, holding, relasing etc.
- opened up tablet, measured battery voltage, it was 3.8V, I topped up to 4V with lipo charger mannualy. still it wont turn on

So here is my question, should I order CH341 EEPROM programmer, follow the tutorial and flash a BIOS since it doesnt show any signs of life ? Not even a charging light ?

Thanks !

Sorry to say that I have no knowledge about your tool. Bestek 400w power inverter is the tool for me to charge camera battery. Friend recommend this charger to me in last year. Now I have acquired how to use this inverter. Simply connect with car cigarette lighter charger outlet, you can search bestekmall on Google to catch more details about this inverter. Hope this point is useful to you.

Since you've opened the tablet, try this:
Disconnect the battery for a few seconds and reconnect it.

I think you should choose what is easier for you, reflash BIOS for yourself or repair the tablet in the nearest local repair service.
