Display damaged ¶ 

The display on the device is showing dead pixels or screen is cracked.

Display needs replacement ¶ 

If you can hear sounds but nothing is visible, or you can see some images but they are not displaying correctly, it is possible the display is bad and must be replaced.

Tablet won't turn on ¶ 

Your tablet will not turn on at all. Before replacing any parts on your device, try one of these two reset options:

  • Disconnect the device from the charger.
  • Hold the power button for 20 seconds.
  • Plug the device back into the charger and attempt to turn it back on.
  • If it does not power up right away, try waiting 15 minutes and powering it up again.

If that doesn't work, you can try:

  • Press and hold both the power button and the volume-up button for 20 seconds while your device is not connected to the charger.
  • When the LG Startup screen appears, release the power button while continuing to hold the volume-up button until the reset menu appears.
  • Use the volume buttons to navigate the reset menu until you see "Wipe Data/Factory Reset"
  • Press the power button to select this option. (Note: This option will delete all of your information on the tablet. Only use this if you have checked the other solutions to getting your device to power on.

Plug your LG G pad 10.1 into your computer or wall adapter to charge. If it does not charge when connected to either of these, you probably have a damaged battery. The battery may need to be replaced.

I was playing a game and my tablet froze. The message came on game not responding turn off or wait. I chose turn off. It froze. I touched the home button and it went blank to a blue screen. It won't shut off or come back on. What do I do now? LG G padx 10.1
