SOURCE: tablet dropped

yeah, depending how high he dropped it from, did he throw it?

if it was standing height, then probably take it to a electronics repairman, or take it to a dick smith, they usually know what they are doing.

My rca tablet is backwards to see the icon and words you have to look in a morrior to see it

Check and see if there is a small pinhole on the back. Try inserting a paper clip. This would be a soft reset and has been known to clear up mirror imaging on some tablets. Also a swift hit on the back side of the tablet has been reported to work as well (try at your own risk) lastly try a hard reset but not you will lose you data. This option is found in the settings menu. Hope one of these works for you.

My screen is reversed. You have to touch the opposite side of the tablet to select what you want and I just want to know how to fix that.

Here are suggestions I found online:
Press the "font size" key. It should look like Aa or some similar marking. When you click that, you should be able to change the orientation. Use the 5 way controller to move the "selection" up and down and left and right. and then press it when you are over the desired rotation. You want to select the very first A selection
