Stuck on flashing screen

I’ve been stuck on this flashing black and white screen with what appears to  have a white rectangle in the middle of the screen what do I do? Do I have to get a replacement? I can’t even use it!

Re: Stuck on flashing screen

Hello Mayoli,

I could tell you more if I had more info. Was it like this from the beginning? At what point during the setup did it start?
