To find out how to do this, follow the Button Cleaning/Replacement Guide

My tablet states "Unfortunately, com.qihoo.security has stopped." It also states in Blue REPORT or OK. It will not leave this screen no matter what I click on.

I have a skynet also known as skypad and i only dropped it once but it still kept working but a month later i couldn't tap certain things on my tablet like half of the screen i could tap it but the other i couldn't sometimes the audio didn't work but all i needed to do was reboot it but one night i was using my skypad and i thought it died because the screen just automatically went black so i tried turning it on...nothing i waited the next morning so it would charge and when it loaded it brought we to the start up screen but then it would turn black and then when i turn it back on it would just keep on doing it until finally it stopped and just didn't do any start up screen these tips are helpful but not enough (for me at least)
