    I picked up my Xoom this morning. Activated it. Have it configured for 3G and WiFi. I have a blue tooth stereo headset paired up with it. I've been using it all day. This afternoon, while plugged in to the wall charger, it bricked. It was running Pandora, setup to use WiFi for Internet access. Pandora was paused.

    Holding the power button does nothing. Is there a way to hard-reset this device?

    Yes, hold the power button and volume up for 3 seconds.

    Found a quick answer on Moto's support site. My first attempts to search for an answer failed (poor google-fu and panic).

    Holding the power button and the volume UP button for 3 seconds reset the device and I'm back in business.

    Uh, well I don't know exactly what you mean by that, but it's essentially the same as a battery pull. (Close to it anyway.)

    Xoom browser will only present a single page (Dropbox). Cannot access any other pages.

    Attempted hard reset - not sure it happened because the downloaded apps are all there and no change to the browser interface problem.

    Any suggestions?:thinking:
