    Returning it would be your best bet then. Sounds like a bad display.

Holding the power button down for 10-15 seconds is considered a hard reset on most tablets. If it still won't load you can try doing a factory restore.

  • Make sure the tablet is powered off
  • Briefly tap the power button once, then hold the power button and volume down until you get the boot menu
  • There should be an option to factory reset or something to that affect

SOURCE: Brand new archos arnova 10 tablet. It is stuck on

To hard reset a tablet, hold the power button down until it shuts off then press it to turn back on. Should take about 5 - 10 seconds for the device to power off.

SOURCE: my literati wont turn on

Hm. Not sure how much help I'll be, but I'll give it a shot.
- Make sure the device is charged for at least 6 hours if this is its first use. If it isn't, charge it for several hours anyway and try it again. Make sure the charger is plugged all the way into the outlet and all the way into the device (mine sticks out about an eighth of an inch, yours might too). - Call customer service at 866-204-4714 and describe the issue. I had something a little like this issue (I was stuck at "Literati" screen) and they said to drain the battery and recharge it fully to see if it made any difference, and that if it didn't work they'll be sending along a package to ship it back to them for a replacement. If nothing works, ship it back to them for a replacement.

NOTHING BUT A BATTERY AND RCA TABLET COMES ON WITH CHARGER BUT SHOWS NOTHING BUT A BATTERY ON SCREEN RCA 7 INCH TABLET


With the charger hooked up and plugged in the tablet will only show the battery on the screen briefly to let you know it's charging. It won't actually boot up until it has a sufficient charge. Just let it set that way for a couple of hours then try to power up.

That symbol means that the tablet battery is plugged in and is supposed to be receiving charging voltage. If the battery is bad, it may not charge but the tablet will still work with the charger plugged in.

How do i open the proscan 8 in tablet ?


When you press and hold in the power button it should boot up. If it doesn't the battery might be dead so charge it up and try again. If it doesn't boot up after charging we need more information.

Are you getting any kind of a screen or just nothing?

Hisense Pro 7 tablet isn't working


A totally dead battery can prevent the tablet from booting. A technician is the only one that can replace batteries in tablets. Contact the manufacturer for an RMA and repair.

The screen on my Amazon Kindle 3G is partially white and partially black with white lines running through it. It has been charged but does not respond when I turn it on. Do you think it is worth fix


It's broken :(

There are companies who will replace the screen for about the same price as a brand new Kindle BASIC. personally I would suggest:
- buy a new Kindle BASIC for 59gbp;
or
- download any of the FREE kindle apps and just finish your library reads for free whilst you look around for a replacement.

If you want a TABLET rather than a eReader remember ANY tablet will download the free Kindle app so you can read your books on a Fire or a ASUS or a NEXUS or a iPad or anything really :)

Good luck.

My samsung galexy Tablet is full charged but not responding when I try to turn it on


Does it do anything at all when you press and hold the power button? Hold the power button in for about 15 seconds. That should force it to reboot.

If you get nothing from doing that, then that usually means one of two things: either the tablet is not charged and the battery is completely depleted, or that the tablet is broken and will not boot. Try charging it with a different cable, try a different charger, or try plugging it into a PC USB port with the PC turned on. Leave it plugged in overnight. It should trickle charge that way and give you enough power to boot up.

Irola dx 752 wont reboot


I ordered the iRola DX 752 for my daughter. After about a week, it simply stopped charging. I contacted the company I ordered it from: nomorerack.com to no avail. Will NEVER order from them again! Finally, I got an email from the manufacturer who is going to exchange it-I hope for a working one. The email contact I have is as follows: eshop@globalpct.com and the address is as follows: Global Phoenix Computer T&S, Inc. 21 Dutch Mill Rd., Ithaca, NY 14850.
