It gets stuck during boot logo & doesn't boot to the OS. There is also a slight chip on the front,it has fallen dozens of times.It just doesn't start that's all--if I try an insane amount of times to get it to start,it runs smoothly(once I kept it under a fan & it booted--another time I moved the charger closer & it booted fine--so I'm beginning to think it's just randomly starts!crazy!)--just as long as I don't turn it off/restart it.I noticed once while using TimeBar app that the charging indicator slightly froze/stalled,& ever since booting has been a chore.I use a custom boot animation but it hasn't been a prob before but I don't know what's wrong /w this!I'm just glad I didn't delete my much-needed apps in trying to pinpoint this prob & in getting this fixed!I also got it rooted.Once I connected it to my lappy /w the Windoze service turned off & I received a volley of connect/d'c messages,could that be it?I've read about this happening tto other users (forums.lenovo.com) & they suggested holding down the Volume buttons to get to Recovery mode--but I don't have that & only Safe Mode works,if I can get it to load anyway (Safe Modes avail /w the Quick Reboot app).I don't want to revert to Factory Reset,as I have a lot of precious apps & data.Another user said that it could be the Motherboard that needa replacing,so worst-comes-to-orat I will send it to the store & get it replaced!And I was told I could send it to the store at the end of the month,so looking forward to it--hopefully they can repair it w/o it costing too much.I bought it locally for 500$ so it's not a small amount either!References: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Android-Yoga-Series-Tablets/MY-Yoga-8-3G-B6000-3G-and-WIFI-is-not-booting/td-p/1465325 | https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Android-Yoga-Series-Tablets/Lenovo-Yoga-Tablet-2-not-switching-on/td-p/2035689 (haven't posted there yet,but will soon!) My iPad works fine though it crashes a lot & my Yoga Tablet has been my rock for so long!Certainly unexpected.Also I don't use the original charger,that broke,so I use a cheap alternative one--that could be it,right?& that doesn't charge as fast.

The Lenovo tablet wasn't repairable by the store,they wanted to format the tablet to repair it,but later said that couldn't be done.I read somewhere that the Mainboard [hardboard?] needed to be replaced by they said the parts were unavailable cause this was an old model.At least that's what my mother said--don't know how far that's true;could be repaired for the right price I guess.I had everything from an IRC Client & Yahoo Mail to premium version Chess APK proggys + YouTube /w captions + a really blazing fast Auto-Reload utility:(autowebpagerefresh) murgoo (for a game I play),& that's just scratching the surface...Anyway what a shame!I was confident cause I read about some guy (bleep-micro) on Livejournal repair someones broken USB stick [which he found abandoned in a parking lot],by replacing the damaged parts & getting it to run--the things people will do!
