Refuses to boot , loops on Brand


I have a Lenovo Tab A7-10

My tablet is less than a month old.

My problem :

I can not switch on.

The tablet keeps vibrating and showing the Lenovo boot screen and screen goes back to black and start all over again.

I tried many methods including the 20 secs power button.

Or plugging the tablet for quite some time.

Only to see the same results.

Any help ?

I had this same boot loop issue happening numerous times with my Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10 (brought in France in August 2015), even few months after buying it.

At first I tried to disconnect/reconnect the battery but this method never worked.

It seems the external SD card is the culprit (it seems to pump the amount of energy it need to properly boot)

Here is the working method I use each time :

1. Remove the SD card

2. Connect the USB to charger

3. Normally, the tablet will vibrate, then show Lenovo logo, then show the battery level.

4. Wait till battery is charged at least at 5%

5. Power on the tablet.

Hope this will help.

The main issue is that the tablet is vibrating and starting when the USB connector is plugged, which is a bad design as this drains more battery power than the USB power can load the battery during the same time. It should be able to just refuel when connecting the USB cable, without powering it up.

Hope this helps:

  1. Remove the back cover by prying it out.
  2. Disconnect the battery connector carefully, and connect it back.
  3. Replace the back cover and connect to charger. When it has at least 5% charge, power it on.

To avoid the same happening again, don't try to power the tablet on when the battery is completely discharged.

If the battery is near its end of usable life, replace it with a new one.

It seems that you don't use the original charger, like a phone charger, which don't provide enough power to start the tablet.
