Tip & How-To about Tablets & eReaders

Power Cable Popping Out on Versus Chinese Tablet

Versus Tablets (sold mostly in the UK and Ireland until 2014) have some great features (like HDMI out and Bluetooth), but power is a problem. They do not charge through the USB port, but through a 3.5mm barrel jack plug (specs are 5v 2000mA).
The power cable on my Versus Android Tablet keeps popping out (and therefore the tablet won't charge). Lately it got so bad that the plug simply wouldn't go in at all. I did a bit of research and came up with a fix.
There's a small plastic ring at the top of the plug. Take a precision pliers and pull the ring off the plug. BE CAREFUL! - If you damage the plug it simply won't go in at all, and your tablet will be useless.
Without this ring the plug stays in and the tablet charges. It still pops out occasionally, but a lot less than it did before.

NB: I do see some replacement power adapters with these plugs available on eBay and Amazon, so you may be able to try out a replacement power supply too.

The tablet keeps freezing and the 'on' button needs to be pushed for several seconds before it responds


Sounds like your tablet has spyware / adware or other fun stuff.

Best option is to back up your information and do a factory reset

just saw it won't turn on. try pulling the battery, wait a min, then replace. Charge the phone to full with the POWER OFF.
then turn on phone, backup and do a factory reset

bypass a forgotten lock code


Make sure the tablet has been turned off first by holding down the power button until you get the power off dialog box and choose power off. Then hold down the volume button and while continuing to hold the volume button, hold down the power button until you get a message like 'booting into recovery mode' or a dialog box that allows you to go into recovery mode and do a factory reset. Some tablets may boot into a screen with the Android robot on it that you can touch the robot and get to the recovery mode screen. When you do a factory reset, all user information stored on the tablet will be cleared, including the passwords or lock codes.

wanting to transfer music files from tablet to computer


Hi, i believe that model has a bluetooth function to connect to other devices, if computer you wish to send files to does not have this feature, you can purchase a usb dongle which will allow you to connect and send files you require. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-USB-2-0-Bluetooth-Adapter-Dongle-EDR-Wireless-Portable-New-/190680733100?pt=UK_Computing_Networking_SM&hash=item2c657515ac
