Audio Distorted ¶
the device is not producing good quality sound or any sound at all from either loud speaker or headphones
Loud Speaker Not Working ¶
Ensure headphones are taken out and volume on tablet is turned all the way up. If the sound is not as loud as it should be or there is no sound at all, your speaker may be damaged or disconnected from motherboard.
Loose Headphones/Bad Headphones ¶
Remove headphone jacks and reinsert them properly, ensuring complete connection with audio jack. If sound is not being produced properly, try using another pair of headphones. If the sound works with the new headphones, your old headphones should be replaced.
Faulty Audio Jack ¶
If you have tried multiple pair of headphones and your sound is still not working properly, your audio jack may have a bad connection with the mother board and should be evaluated.
Display Will Not Turn On ¶
Your device does not appear to turn on at all.
Dead/Faulty Battery ¶
Insert the charger . Now, leave the charger in the device for 30 minutes and attempt to turn on. If the device will not turn on then the battery needs to be replaced.
Bad Display ¶
If the tablet is charged or connected and the device does power on, but the screen does not turn on, then the LCD may need to be replaced
Faulty Motherboard ¶
If neither of the options above work, the motherboard of your device may not be any good.
Battery Dies Quickly/Won't Charge ¶
Your device does not hold a charge for more than a few minutes or stay on without the charger.
Too Many Apps/Processes Running ¶
If your device does hold charge for long, you may have too many apps running which is overloading the device. To stop the apps from shutting your device off, navigate to Home>Settings>Wireless & networks>Data usage and then clear the data and cache that your apps are using as well using the force stop button to stop any app, process, or service. Disabling Wifi and Bluetooth connections will also preserve battery life.
Faulty Charger/Charger Jack ¶
If your device is plugged into the proper microUSB charger and does not seem to gain any battery charge, then you may have a faulty charger or charger jack. The best option is to try a new battery charger before assuming the charger or battery are bad.
Faulty Battery ¶
If your device is still losing charge rapidly after turning off all the apps and trying a new charger, then your battery is more than likely going to need to be replaced.
Screen is Unresponsive/Shuts Off Randomly ¶
Your device is unresponsive to any form of touch capabilities.
Too Many Apps/Processes Running ¶
First turn device off, wait one minute after device has completely turned off and turn it back on. If device is still not functioning properly, this may mean the device has too many apps or processes running at one time which will overload your device and cause it to automatically shut down. To stop the apps from shutting your device off, navigate to Home>Settings>Wireless & networks>Data usage and then clear the data and cache that your apps are using as well using the force stop button to stop any app, process, or service. Disabling Wifi and Bluetooth connections will also preserve battery life.
Device is Overheating ¶
If your device feels hot to touch, this can cause the device to automatically shut down due to its own safety mechanism. Stop all apps, processes, and connections as well as let your device rest for 15 minutes to let it cool down.
Factory Data Reset ¶
After powering your device off then on, if it still acts slow you may want to factory data reset the device. NOTE: this will erase all personal data from internal storage. To perform the Factory Data Reset navigate to Home>Settings>Backup&Reset>Factory data reset.
