Hi there and welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your Edge. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.

Hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.

Release, then try to turn on the unit.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

No it does not appear to turn off
Expert:  Richard replied 7 months ago.

Did you hold the power button for 60 seconds?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Sorry it does turn off but only after it turns on and then when I hold the on/off button it keeps turning on and then off
Expert:  Richard replied 7 months ago.

I am sorry to hear that.

It is the internal mainboard that has faulted.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the unit to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you
