Lenovo tablet won't turn on ¶ 

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

Faulty battery ¶ 

Before diving into the guts of your tablet, make sure to hold the power button.

Drained/bad battery ¶ 

If your tablet won't turn on, you may simply have a drained battery.

Bad display ¶ 

It is possible that it appears nothing is happening because the display is bad. If the screen does not turn on, it is possible the display is bad and must be replaced.

Lenovo tablet won't connect to internet ¶ 

When I open the browser, the webpage won't load.

Enable WiFi ¶ 

Check the settings to see if the WiFi is on. If not, click the on/off switch until it is lit up.

Poor connection ¶ 

Check to see if your tablet is connected to a local network. If you are trying to connect to a private network, make sure you have the proper credentials to access the network.

Testing connection ¶ 

Open browser and reload the webpage.

Faulty Bluetooth pairing ¶ 

My Bluetooth speaker won't connect to the Lenovo tablet.

Bluetooth not enabled ¶ 

Check the settings to see if the Bluetooth is enabled. If not, click the on/off switch until it is lit up.

Scan for Bluetooth devices ¶ 

After the Bluetooth is enabled, scan for nearby Bluetooth devices. The device automatically searches for available connections.

Tablet won’t pair with other devices ¶ 

Check to see if both devices are paired to each other. If not, disconnect tablet from any other paired devices.

Media problems ¶ 

I cannot hear media playing on the tablet.

Tablet volume turned off ¶ 

Make sure the tablet is not on mute. Raise volume using the volume rocker on the left side of the device.

Headphones are connected ¶ 

Make sure that the headphones are not connected.

Camera is not working ¶ 

I cannot take pictures with the tablet.

Camera application not opening ¶ 

Reinstall device drivers. In order to do this, you must go into settings and click on "Backup and reset" - Factory data reset. Before doing this make sure to save all data on a separate hard drive.

Dead Motherboard ¶ 

If all else fails, the system board may be dead. The Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70 System Board Replacement guide will be sure to help you out.

Cracked or damaged screen ¶ 

The camera on this device is built into the front panel, so damaging the screen may cause problems with the camera. For more help with replacing the screen, check out the Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70 LCD Screen Display Replacement Guide.

I ran into the same problem a month ago and sent it in to Lenovo the learn parts were on backorder. Now if have learned part is in, new motherboard? Have not gotten it back yet. This weekend a 2nd identical tablet just died! I'm looking to see what anyone has heard from Lenovo on this? Is this a flaw?

Ran into this issue last week with my Lenovo A10-70f, this is what I've found.

1) If you let your kid use your tablet whilst its charging then sure enough, it will move and bend over time (even if its you who does it) and the internal micro usb port on the Lenovo will get loose. Constant wear and tear like this will damage the internal connectors of the micro usb port. Thus not able to charge.

You can either watch tutorial video's on how to dismantle and replace the micro sd port (ordering a replacement part online) and fitting it yourself or take it to one of those deli style stalls that fix phones and maybe they can fix it. Or

2) There's a bug in the software, that doesnt let you charge when it reaches a certain percentage. There's a programme you can download off the net but I forgot what its called 'A10FIX TOOLS' or something. Dont throw it away just yet.

I'm having a problem connecting to wifi. I turn it on, it lights up, then it turns itself off without ever doing a search for a connection. It was fine when I took it on the road to visit family, then when I got back home, I get nothing. Any ideas?

when I say "I turned it on" I mean I went to settings and slid the little button for wifi to the on position. After a few seconds, it slid back to the off position all by itself.

Have A10-70F and it just turns on to the "Lenovo powered by android screen" vibrates and then turns off and keeps on doing this every 30secs or so. Tried draining battery by removing connector. Really want to get this tablet working again any help would be great.

Tried the power button and volume for reset but nothing happens or even comes up on the screen for me to enable a reset

I have a Lenovo TAB 2 A7 10F and last january it wont start at all, try to reset and connect battery plug out but only thing it do was vibrating when power button were pressed. So I buy new tablet and put that TAB 2 A7 10F outside (it was -23 degrees celcius out) next morning i think that i had to put TAB 2 A7 10F to electronics waste, i pressed power button and tadaa Lenovo TAB works again. Yestyrday TAB 2 A7 10F do exactly same thing it wont power up the battery was fully charged so I put TAB 2 A7 10F to freezer and let it be there half an hour, and tadaa again it works.

Used my tablet the other night then plugged it in to charge when I went to bed. When I got up, the back was so hot it burned my hand. It hasn't turned on since. Cheaper to get new one or fix it? Barb D.
