Question about Coby MID8065-8 8 Inch Android 4.0 Tablet

1 Answer

The tablet will not charge. When the a/c is plugged in have to move it to different positions to see charging activity. It still loses power though. Can the internal part where the a/c plugs fits in be replaced? Or what other problem would cause the tablet to lose power when plugged in?

From your description, the power connector could be intermittent but if so the tablet will have to be disassembled to make repairs.

SOURCE: no power

I had the same problem! It's not your charger, it's the tablet.


Most likely, the soddering came apart on the inside of the tablet, on the part that connects the charging port with some important wires. You can either take the cover off and fix it, but if it's like mine, it'll just come apart again.
This is what i did: plug in the tablet, and cross the cord from the right across the screen, to the left, and make sure it's tight. I use a binder clip to make sure it stays and charges.

Fire HD tablet will not charge.


Also try a different charging block and a different out to plug into, try one thing at a time some if it works you will know which was the problem.
You can try resetting it to factory as if you were going to sell it. Sometimes they lose software and this will replace it. If that does not work it could be in the charger port itself.

Is no chargin


Hi,

Does the tablet power on when plugged in?
Have you tried a different power outlet, or a different power adapter?
Does the connector on the tablet seem loose or will the tablet charge if you hold the charging cable firmly to the charging socket?

Depending on your answers, it could be a bad charging port on the device, or a bad power adapter/cable, or a problem with electrical outlets. The remaining option would be a battery problem.

I post on behalf of HP.

Why does my Visual Land 9 tablet lose power while turned off? It hasn't been charging much at all lately. I've had to find a different charger since getting it, but even now, that one doesn't help.


You are not turning it ll the way off, merely to standby. The wireless function remains active while in standby and drains the battery. Hold the Off switch for about 5 seconds. You should notice a different screen look. Or turn off the wireless when not using it.

I tried powering up my tablet but it doesn't power up after many tries with many cords and Sears won't take it back. What is wrong?


Hi! I will try to assist you:

1. Make sure the battery is charged enough for the tablet to power on or (if it is not) if you can charge it. An easy way to do thisa is to plug in a charger and see if it indicates that it charges.
If it does not charge, then:
a) The battery is faulty or
b) Something is wrong with the adaptor or the "charge-circuit"
In order for a) and second part of b) to be checked, your tablet needs to be opened!

2. If it charges, then it might be the power button. Try to press it hard enough (try not to break it though) in order to make sure it is not a little bit broken or moved. If still nothing happens then your tablet has to be opened!

3. The screen might be faulty as well.

4. If it is none of the above, then it might be the mainboard. In order to make sure it is not the mainboard, you would need to connect it to an external monitor and see if it works with the external one (I think there is no such option in your case, though)

I assume you wish to experiment-check it by yourself. If you just need a new one, then for instance:

I have a filla tablet and it will not com on help please


I suppose this is some cheap android tablet. If the power button does not turn the tablet on, try plugging in different chargers and cables. Perhaps the battery is not charged. If the tablet has been dead for awhile it might take awhile to charge the device up enough to turn the screen on. So, try cleaning the charge connector with some alcohol and check it for damage and allow port to dry before plugging in any power. Just experiment by moving the power cord around and perhaps the connector is loose pr something. I suggest leaving the cord plugged in even for days or hours because it can take different devices a long time to charge if they are flat.

Cant get my samsung tablet to turn on


Your tablet's battery is probably dead. This may be because you have a bad battery, a bad charger, or a bad charging cable. Try using a different cable first and let it charge for a few hours - even if it doesn't look like it is charging.

If the new cable doesn't do it, try using a different charger. Samsung devices are picky about what charger you use, so try to use one made for your tablet. If you don't have another charger, plug it into a PC's USB port with the PC turned on. Leave them on and plugged in over night. That should trickle charge your tablet.

If neither of those work, try holding down the power and the Volume Up buttons. Keep them both pressed until the Samsung logo/boot screen comes up - should only be a couple seconds. Once the logo comes up release the power button but keep holding the Volume Up button. That will boot you into Recovery Mode. If that comes up, it means you've got power and your tablet isn't broken, but there is something wrong with the Android OS that is keeping your tablet from powering up normally. Use the Volume Up and Down buttons to move the selection highlight to the Factory Reset option. This will wipe all the info off your tablet and put it back into a "brand new just out of the box" state. You'll lose your information on the tablet, but this should fix the boot problem. Press the power button to chose the Factory Reset option. It will take a few minutes. Once it says that it is done, select the Reboot or Restart option. It should reboot. This boot will take longer than normal, since its wiping things out. But not more than a few minutes.

My pandigital tablet dont wanna charge


USB Connections
All tablets connect to your computer using a USB cable.
Once connected, the device should charge as long as the computer recognizes it.
Look for manufacturer-specific software to launch once you plug your tablet into your computer; if this software fails to launch, it's likely that your computer hasn't detected the device and won't charge it.
Try a second USB cable, if available, or plug the USB cable into a different port.
If the device doesn't charge in either port, replace the USB cable.

AC Adapters
Some tablets are sold with an accompanying AC power adapter, though these accessories are often optional.
Try plugging your tablet into its AC power connector in the event that its USB cable isn't functioning.
Also check different wall outlets in case the outlet you are plugging your tablet into is defective.
If the device fails to charge in different outlets, the AC adapter may be faulty.


Reboot Like any device with an operating system a computer, a mobile phone or an MP3 player tablet computers can freeze from time to time.
When a computer freezes, you can reboot or restart it to get the operating system working properly again.
This is true of tablets too, but rebooting these systems can be a little tricky.
Check the manufacturer's website for specific instructions to restart your system.
Putting the tablet to sleep and waking it up doesn't clear its memory look instead for the buttons for a "reset," which are different for every brand.
This may clear up any recent malfunctions, like freezing apps or charging issues.

Restore

Just like a computer, tablets sometimes need to be restored to their original state to overcome technical issues like charging problems.
Again, the process of restoring your tablet to its factory default differs from model to model and from brand to brand.
Check the manual or the manufacturer's website for specific instructions, but as a general rule: plug the tablet into your computer using the provided USB cable.
Wait for the appropriate software to load and then look for a "Restore" option.
Follow the onscreen prompts to restore the device.
