Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 Troubleshooting

Tablet Will Not Charge ¶ 

The tablet fails to indicate that it is plugged in and charging.

Charger Not Connected ¶ 

It is possible that you do not have the charger connected all the way to the tablet or the wall which will result in the device not receiving the electric current. Make sure your charger is completely plugged in on both ends and has a good connection.

Bad Power Adapter ¶ 

If your cord is plugged in completely to the tablet and wall, your power adapter could be dead. Try using a friends power adapter that does work on your tablet to see if it charges it. If the other charger works, you most likely need to purchase a new power adapter.

Using a Phone Charger ¶ 

You can use a compatible phone charger to charge the device. However, it only supplies 1 amp of power which, compared to 2 amps of power from the device’s charger, will cause the tablet to charge much slower due to less power being delivered.

Bad IO Board ¶ 

If tablet is still not charging, the battery charging port may have broken off of the electric board inside the tablet. If that is the case, you will need to replace your IO Board.
See the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 IO Board Replacement guide to learn how to fix it.

Dead Battery ¶ 

Another possible problem is that your battery is dead, in which case you will need to buy a new one and replace it.
See the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 Battery Replacement guide to learn how to fix it.

Speakers Will Not Play ¶ 

Audio playing but the speakers are producing little to no sound.

Volume Off ¶ 

The volume may be turned down low or completely off. Check on the side of the tablet that the volume is turned up loud enough to where you are able to hear it.

Connected To Another Audio Device ¶ 

If the tablet is connected to another audio playing device such as headphones or speakers it will not play sound out of the built in speakers. Check to make sure that it is not connected to any other device.

Blown-Out/Damaged Speakers ¶ 

If the speakers are producing some noise but it is very faint and strange sounding there is a chance that the speakers have been blown out; they will need to be replaced. If the speakers are producing no sound at all a wire may have become disconnected or there maybe some water damage; in either case they will need to be replaced.
See the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 Speakers Replacement guide to learn how to fix them.

HDMI Cable Not Connecting ¶ 

The tablet will not connect through the HDMI cable to another device.

Cable Not Connected ¶ 

It is possible that you do not have the HDMI cable connected all the way to the tablet or the device which will result in the components not transmitting electric current. Make sure your charger is completely plugged in on both ends and has a good connection.

Incorrect Input ¶ 

The device that you plugged the tablet into may be on the wrong input for the HDMI connection. Check that it is set to the correct input to display what is on your tablet.

Bad Cable ¶ 

If your cable has cuts or other connection issues, you may have a bad cable with a poor connection. Try it again with a different HDMI cable. If that works, then you just need to purchase a new HDMI cable.

Broken Port ¶ 

If you have tried using multiple cables and the HDMI still doesn't connect, the HDMI port is probably broken. To replace the port, you need to replace the IO board.
See the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 IO Board Replacement guide to learn how to fix it.

Headphone Jack Not Working ¶ 

Audio does not play through headphones.

Bad Headphones ¶ 

Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing them with another device such as a music player that you know for sure works. If they do not work when plugged into that device then they are probably broken and you will need to replace them.

Pending Software Updates ¶ 

Try restarting the device and make sure there are no pending software updates.

Damaged Audio Jack ¶ 

It is possible that your audio jack was damaged and needs to be replaced.
See the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 Digital Board Replacement guide to learn how to fix it.

WiFi Not Connecting ¶ 

The IdeaTab will not connect to a wireless network.

WiFi Turned Off ¶ 

Check to make sure your WIFI is turned on by going to settings and selecting ‘On’ for WiFi.

Problem With Router ¶ 

There may be a problem with your router; try resetting your router by following these steps:

  1. Unplug the power cord
  2. Leave unplugged for around 20 seconds before plugging it back in
  3. Wait a few minutes for your tablet to find your WiFi again
  4. Reconnect your tablet to the WiFi
  5. Re-enter your passcode if your WIFI is protected

Damaged Antenna ¶ 

If your tablet is still not connecting, you may need to replace the WIFI/GPS antenna in the IdeaTab.
