Usually when you have what i would call a power lock out. you must remove the battery and wait a few minutes and put it back in, and it usually fires up. Most electronics have these problems. If you are 100% sure the unit is charged with a green light, or no light at all, and you pressing of the top button does not turn it on then remove the back, it is very easy. You can lift it up with your fingernail. If new and faint of heart, under warranty, and all, then make that phone call. Otherwise, you must attempt to remove the connects to the big grey squared battery for a moment, which is said to be easy to do and the battery easy to replace. Look for instruction on the removal on YouTube, or other sites. However, I am more than sure this will solve the problem, unless it has been in liquid, a power surge, dropped, or in excessive heat or cold, or touched by some with "bad karma" for electronics (just kidding). hope this helps.

    01/06/2011 - I bought the R103 a couple of days ago and the power switch is really flakey ... have to press several times to turn the unit on or off. I think it's just a defective switch and given the poor overall quality I wouldn't be surprised if lots of others were having similar problems.

My cruz tablet 103 won't keep app open, it just reverts to home page. Any suggestions?


You need to update your tablet, or update the programming on your tablet. Apparently all the android 2.2 tabs are considered "legacy" models and don't support the newest google and java script. Since this is what the net primarily uses, those of us with the Cruz are hosed.

My Micro Cruz keeps turning itself on. Won't stay off for longer than five minutes then the screen powers up and stays on. I have resorted to powering it off after use which sucks as it looses time, my...


So it's your screen that is coming back on after you press the power button to put it into sleep mode (not all the way off)? Flashing to the new firmware made this issue even worse. I would try a full reset. Back up apps and follow the procedure for resetting the device (press the hole at the top with a paper clip don't use a mechanical pencil...).
Other than this I would reflash or flash to a new rom it seems like you have a defect not a software issue. Flashing to the the updated rom should've fixed any problem that was software based not made it worse. It seems like there is a connection loose and it's triggering the device to wake up from sleep mode. If you feel like you have it in you, you can pull the device apart and try securing all connections but this is not recommended.

My Cruz reader will not turn on. It froze and shut off. I've pressed the "reset" button but it still won't work.


My mom's did the same thing. Try holding in the reset button and the power button at the same time for 25 - 30 seconds. release them both when you see the Cruz boot screen appear. It should be fine after that

I turned the Cruz Reader off and I can not get it to turn back on. I tried to charge it but no light will come on. Any suggestions?


Taken from Velocity Micro Support Center:
What should I do if my Cruz device will not turn on?


If your Cruz device will not turn on or freezes, follow the steps below to resolve this:
  • Locate the Cruz RESET location between the Power Button and mini-USB port.
  • Using the straightened end of a small paperclip, insert it perpendicularly into the RESET hole and hold for 5 seconds.
  • Turn on your Cruz
If the steps above do not allow you to power on again, then continue with the steps below:
  • Remove the Cruz from the charger and eject the External SD card.
  • Place the Cruz face down on the desk, starting at the External SD slot, pull off the back cover of your Cruz.
  • In the lower left corner of the back of your Cruz, locate the battery power cable. Unplug the cable and replug it again.
  • Return the back cover to your Cruz and snap it into place.
  • Re-insert your External SD card and power on your Cruz.
