Users manual for Velocity Cruz Tablet Model: PS47

Can't get past the 9 dots on the screen. It is also in Spanish! I need English

Posted by on

  • Julia Cassidy Jan 01, 2013

    The 9 dots are obviously the password and it looks like someone has already set their password on this thing! I bought this on eBay. I tried a series of combinations to open this thing but it always shuts down after I input a pattern of dots( Obviously I don\'t know the pswd). The thing is also in Spanish! It was probably originally sold in a Spanish country. I just need to know if I can take it back to it\'s factory settings and just start all over again? The reset button is no help.

SOURCE: Velocity Micro Cruz ereader screen

Mine hasn't frozen (yet) but if this is a more or less "permanent" freeze there is a reset pinhole between the power button and the usb connector. If this is in intermittent problem, the only thing I can say is that the device is poorly designed, the screen is just not very responsive and the CPU chip must be under-powered so it is very slow to react. If you tap-tap-tap a lot on the screen or the power button you might be overloading the CPU. Mine seems to freeze from time to time but eventually "catches up" and then starts working again. Sorry, but I definitely put this product only a half step above the junk category. I also own an Ipod Touch and holy cow there is a world of difference in quality and performance between the two.

Oh yeah - you might try calibrating the screen but I doubt that it will help much. The "calibration" suggestion really seems like more of a distraction tactic to make new owners think they are really doing something cool to make it work better out of the box.

If you can still return the machine for a refund I suggest you do - lots of new tablets andf "readers" will be hitting the stores within a few weeks and Best Buy will be selling these for $50 just to unload them!

To update the firmware you can follow the directions here

I used a similar method when I had my Cruz Reader R101. This process is called "side-loading"
You will have to download a file to your computer (not your tablet), remove the SD media card from your cruz, then transfer the downloaded file from your computer to it, then replace the SD card to your cruz.

Also you can download the user manual here which shows how to remove the card, and this is a great reference to keep on your reader. For example, page 14 shows how to transfer files to and from your reader. Good luck!

Velocity micro cruz, cant access webcam

Not sure which model you have but if by chance you have the T410 model, instructions for using the camera can be found on page 27 of the manual at the following link. This looks like a very nice device!

Velocity cruz tablet (R100 series) is frozen on startup screen that says

Give the thing to some one and purchase a new device. The processor is not operating the unit. I see no way to recover from this problem. If you remove rear cover and unplug battery you can try again and again. You can install os on micro card but it will not work. it makes a nice paper weight.

My velocity micro cruz t301 does not turn on but it has a light on the screen though. I was just about to download a book in kindle when that happen.

Try this. 1. Carefully take the battery out. 2. And you should see a white cable attached to an 'outlet'. 3. Unplug it and then wait about five seconds. plug it back in.

If this helpful, please give a testimonial and vote by pressing button thumbs up.

My Android Cruz Reader R101 starts on the Cruz flash screen, skips then goes back to Cruz flash screen. I have reset it using the reset between the power and External SD card. I also removed the back and...

This sounds similar to something that happened when I tried rooting my android phone. If it's the same thing, that means you will need to go to recovery mode and install an package that you can find somewhere online for it. It's because the code for what's supposed to happen after that screen is overwritten and it doesn't know where to go.
