Arnova 7K G3 Troubleshooting

Arnova 7K G3, model number AN7DG3C. A 7" tablet made for kids.

Tablet won't turn on ¶ 

No matter what you do, you can't get your tablet to turn on.

Drained/bad battery ¶ 

If your tablet won't turn on, especially if it has not been used recently, you may simply have a drained battery. Plug your tablet into your computer or AC adapter and see if anything happens. Ideally your tablet will recognize it has been connected to a power source and charge its battery. If it will no longer charge, the battery is dead and must be replaced.

Bad display ¶ 

It is possible that it appears nothing is happening because the display is bad.

Unable to Unlock ¶ 

The tablet has froze and needs to be restart. Locate the power button and hold for 10 seconds.

No audio ¶ 

Your tablet turns on and appears to work, but when you plug in headphones or speakers, the audio doesn't play properly.

Bad headphones/speakers ¶ 

It's unlikely your headphones or speakers are bad, but it's worthwhile to eliminate these as the source of your problem at the beginning. Try your tablet with another set of headphones or speakers just to make sure that the problem is with the tablet.

Bad audio jack ¶ 

The most likely cause of audio output problems on the tablet is a bad audio-out jack.

Tablet runs slow ¶ 

Your tablet seems to be running slower than when you originally got it.

Not enough memory ¶ 

There may not be enough memory available on the device. Remove apps or add external memory using the micro SD slot.

Too many tasks ¶ 

Without you knowing it you may have dozens of apps running in the background on your device, this is eating up battery power and processes making your tablet run slower and last a shorter time between charges. Close running apps.

Decreasing battery life ¶ 

Battery on your device runs out very quickly

Too many tasks ¶ 

Without you knowing it you may have dozens of apps running in the background on your device, this is eating up battery power and processes making your tablet run slower and last a shorter time between charges. Close running apps.

Screen Brightness ¶ 

Setting screen brightness to max setting will drain energy from the device. Set your device as well to have its screen go off after 2 minutes of non-use.

Wifi On ¶ 

Network applications running in the background will remain active and drain the battery even when not in use. If you are not using the WiFi, shut it off.
