Why is there no recall on MS Surface Pro 2 models that wont

Customer Question

Why is there no recall on MS Surface Pro 2 models that wont start? The jumble of fixes available on line are ridiculous. This is an expensive piece of equipment - stand behind it! Staples, in North Conway N.H., where I purchased the tablet, doesn't even know where a repair facility is. Very disappointed! (*****@******.***)
JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact make and model of your tablet computer?
Customer: MS Surface pro 2. ser. # 018785633853. If I repeatedly attempt start-up it may or may not energize. Why no recall. If you go on line it's obvious there is a serious problem with start-up. I live in south western Maine. Where can I get this thing fixed?
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: They are supposed to download automatically - Why?
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No - Other than the tablet is useless as is.

I'm not sure why Microsoft have not issued a recall for the Surface Pro 2. Perhaps they are not aware of the extent of the problem.

Have you tried contacting them directly? You can open a service request online at:

If the tablet is still under warranty then you can return it to the retailer.

Happy New Year!
