Wrong cable connector ¶
Be sure the cable is compatible for the device.
USB cable is not working properly ¶
Check both ends of the cable to see if they are damaged. If they are, they must be replaced.
Make sure that the USB cable is fully inserted into the USB port of the tablet and the USB port of your computer.
Is the amber light on the bottom of the tablet turned on? It will turn green when fully charged.
Make sure that the charge light is on. If it is not then you may have to replace the USB cable.
No audio or distorted audio ¶
The table turns on and appears to work, but when you plug in headphones or speaker, the audio doesn't play properly
Bad audio jack ¶
The most likely cause of audio output problems on the tablet is a bad audio-out jack. First try a full restore on the tablet to make sure it is not a software issue. If that fails to work, try replacing the audio jack. If that doesn't solve the problem, your motherboard most likely needs replacement.
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 your tablet.
