HP Slate 8 Pro Does Not Turn On ¶ 

Your Android phone or tablet has very few buttons. The only way you can turn it on is by pressing the power button. If that isn't working, don’t panic! There may be a couple of issues you can address to make it work.

Faulty Power Adapter ¶ 

Check to make sure the power adapter is plugged into a working outlet. If it is, make sure the light on the adapter is on. If the light is not on, and the adapter is plugged in, the adapter is likely faulty. Consider purchasing a replacement adapter.

Faulty Battery ¶ 

If the adapter is plugged in, and the light on the adapter is on, make sure the adapter is connected to the tablet. If the tablet only powers up when the adapter is plugged in, regardless of charging time, then the battery is faulty and you will need to replace the battery.

Screen is Not Working Correctly ¶ 

Why is my touchscreen not working?

Dirty Screen ¶ 

Touch screens are very sensible to the touch. Sometimes dust and skin oils prevent the screen from recognizing touch movements. Clean your screen. To clean a touchscreen, all you really need is a microfiber cloth. For dirtier screens, use a little bit of alcohol along with the microfiber cloth. It is best to use a microfiber cloth because it does not scratch your touch screen while removing all dust and oils.

Can't Hear Audio ¶ 

Why can't I hear anything from my speakers?

Faulty Speakers ¶ 

Test audio through the speakers. Make sure the volume is not muted and the volume is turned up, then test it using headphones. If the audio is only distorted while listening via headphones, the audio jack or the headphones themselves may be faulty. If you can't hear through the headphones nor through the speakers, consider replacing your speakers.

Running Out of Memory ¶ 

I do not have enough memory in my tablet. What can I do?

Replace/Upgrade Memory ¶ 

You can insert a memory MicroSDHC card slot for memory expansion.
