    Probably I understood the problem. We flashed the Bios with a version that is compatible with 3.0 USB port, but my tablet has 2.0 USB ports only (black ports).

    In fact my usb ports don’t work when the tablet decide to start…sometime it starts itself and I don’t know why.

    I would like to try to install the bios “from 32 to 64bit” but I can do this operation from windows only because as I said before my usb ports don’t work when windows is on. Is it possible to have .exe Bios?

    Did you test that it was a USB2.0 port?

    I’ve come to understand that some units have black USB3.0 ports, but maybe that was not correct?

    I’ve still not received my tablet, hopefully I wont have to flash it…would be good with confirmation if all dead units have been flashed.

    I tried 32 to 64bit Bios and however the tablet doesn’t start, so the problem is not the bios software.

    I have two black ports, so I supposed they are 2.0…is it not true?

    I can’t remember where I’ve read it, but I’ve seen somewhere that some tablets have black USB3.0 ports. When I ordered mine from banggood I received a strange answer from customer service when I asked if the tablet had USB3.0 since only USB2.0 was listed in the spec sheet.

     

    EDIT: Source for info about the color of the ports: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=64651777&postcount=75

    Hi guys, I don’t have any theory about why does it happen, but I managed to power up my tablet after I had the exact same problem. I couldn’t turn it on no matter what I did, I tried any possible key combination for any period of time while connected and dis-connected to a different chargers and cables but nothing worked. I don’t know why, but I tried to connect the tablet to it’s keyboard, and it turned on immediately! (Well, if we don’t count the windows update “don’t turn of your computer” thing) As I said, I have no idea why did it work, but it did the job for me. I hope it will help someone.

     

    Unfortunately  doesn’t work here. What did you guys do with your tablets? Asked the seller for a refund or something else?

    I have the same problem. I opened up the Chuwi to try the solution mentioned above (removing the battery connector). Unfortunately, the chuwi doesn’t have such a connector. The battery is just soldered on to the board.. So unfortunately, still no solution.

    My answer won’t help you but I bought the Chuwi for 1 reason simply because I could at least replace the battery albeit by soldering. My idea is to soldier a couple of quick connects to the board and also to a few batteries so when one dies I can easily change the battery. This ability makes the unit worth having IMO. If I could not have the ability to change the battery, I’d not have ever bought the unit. It makes no sense to buy a throwaway pc.

    I’m another from so many bricked Chuwi Hi10 owners (Chuwi Hi10 V300 hardware revision, serial 15xxxxx) who reflashed the BIOS and the tablet is back to Life! ?

    Info about the fix is here: http://techtablets.com/forum/topic/bricked-trying-bios-update/page/7/#post-44941

    (I’m posting this info in the tread here just to be sure that anybody subscribed to the tread know that there is a solution.)

    Hi guys.

    I had the some problem – I couldn’t boot my Chuwi Hi10 in any way. I tried all, I think, solutions which I found on this forum and few tips from gearbest (my tablet was bought on Aliexpress in november 2016), incudind disconnecting wire between battery and motherboard. There was connector, it wasn’t soldered. I was determined to order stuff ned to fix BIOS in my tab. I would have to wait some time and I had nothing to lose, so i decided for risque techniue.

    I had in the end of my mind that battery can be totally empty. The device was opened and I used multimeter. Voltage was about 2,6V, so i prepared cable with stickers / crocodiles on the + and – wired on one end, and usb on the other end (to plug to wall charger). Then I attached the stickers / crocodiles to + and – wires of te battery. I had to remove a bit of insulation without destroying metal wires. I left it for charging this way for about 2h. Then disconnested provisional charger and… I was able to turn on my tablet! After it, it was charged up to 36%. I checked few functions, both systems, restarted it and left to charge in normal way.

    I am nor sure if it could be universal solution. But if it will help anyone I will be really glad. My advice is don’t leave the teb with low battery for long time.

    Best regards, Rafal
