MY Xoom died and I put it away for several months. Finally I contacted Motorola and they said hold down the volume buttons when you turn it on and keep them on until it finishes booting. I thought Yeah Right but I did it and it worked, still using it after a year or so since it happened. This is supposedly a cure for several things that may happen. I don't use it much and mostly just for reading books and a few games but I think it's great.
