Your Android Phone or Tablet Won&#;t Turn On? 6 Ways to Fix

Every smartphone owner's worst nightmare is trying to fire up your phone and finding that nothing happens. Your phone won't turn on. A black screen with no sign of life spells disaster.

What are the reasons your Android phone or tablet might not turn on? Let's have a look at some causes and solutions.

1. Charging Issues

As is frequently the case, the most obvious cause is usually the correct one.

If you haven't noticed any sign of your phone malfunctioning previously, the problem might be a simple as a lack of juice in the battery. More often than not, that traces back to charging issues.

Check Your Connections

Firstly, check the obvious points. Did you definitely remember to charge your phone? Has the charger become partially dislodged from the wall socket? And is the power socket turned on?

Dirt and Dust

Next, ensure there's no dust, dirt, or other gunk clogging up either the USB port on your charging cable or your phone's charging port.

Remember, the connections are delicate. The best way to remove grime from ports is to use a can of compressed air.

Troubleshoot Your Cable

USB charging cables are notorious for malfunctioning on a whim. You can check the integrity of your cable by using it with another device and seeing if it works.

We've covered some of the best charging cables for Android if you'd like to explore other options.

2. Perform a Power Cycle

We've all experienced a frozen phone. The screen is unresponsive, and none of the buttons work. But did you know that it's also possible for a phone to freeze in its powered-off state?

If your Android phone won't turn on, one solution is to perform a power cycle. For old devices with a removable battery, it's as easy as taking out the battery, waiting a few seconds, and putting it in again.

On more modern handsets that don't have a removable battery, press and hold the device's power button for several seconds. Depending on your manufacturer, you might need to keep it held down for anywhere between 10 and 30 seconds.

3. Check Your Battery

If you're confident that your charging equipment is working, and a power cycle hasn't solved your problems, it's time to turn your attention to your phone's battery. It might be the reason your phone is not switching on.

Most phone and tablet batteries start to rapidly decline in quality after a few years of use. Eventually, they will completely die. Other types of damage can also irreparably affect the battery. Liquids, falls onto hard surfaces, and extreme temperatures can all render a battery useless.

Check the Battery Is Receiving Power

After you have plugged your phone or tablet into your charger, wait for one minute to see whether the battery icon pops up on your screen.

If it does, your battery is fine, and you can move onto the next steps. Alternatively, you might see a small red (or other color) light flashing. If you do, it means your battery doesn't have enough power to turn on or display any content on the screen. Let it charge for 30 minutes, then try again.

Don't see a battery icon or a light? That might mean that your battery is dead and needs replacing.

If your phone has a removable battery, you can pick up a new one on Amazon for a decent price. For phones without removable batteries, you either need to try to pull apart your phone and change the battery yourself or take it to a specialist shop.

Be aware that if you try to change the battery yourself, you might void the device's warranty. If you'd like to check the health of your Android battery, follow our guide.

4. Check the Screen

Of course, your phone might be powered on without you realizing it. A broken screen can give the impression that there's no power.

Thankfully, it's easy to know whether your screen is to blame. Hold the Power button for 30 seconds to ensure your phone is definitely powering up, then wait for at least two minutes to allow the boot process to complete.

Now, simply call yourself from another phone. If the phone rings, your screen is to blame. If it doesn't, you need to keep going.

Remember, you can sometimes replace the screen yourself, but once again, you will void your warranty.

5. Use Your Computer to Troubleshoot

If you still can't get your device to boot, you might be able to force it to turn on using your computer. Google provides a somewhat convoluted series of steps that you can work through. We've simplified them below:

  1. Connect your phone to your computer using a USB cable.
  2. Let it charge for 15 minutes.
  3. Disconnect the cable from your device (not the computer).
  4. Reconnect the cable within 10 seconds of disconnecting it.
  5. Charge your device for a further 30 minutes.
  6. Press and hold the Power button for five seconds.
  7. Tap Restart on your screen.
  8. If you don't see Restart, hold the power button for a further 30 seconds.

6. Reset Your Android Device

Perhaps your device will turn on, but cannot make it past the boot process to your home screen. A corrupted upgrade or a custom ROM could be to blame. In this case, you can try to reset your device.

Warning: Resetting your phone or tablet will wipe everything on it. Ensure sure you make regular backups of your important Android data.

To reset your Android phone using Recovery Mode, follow the steps below:

  1. Press and hold the Power button and Volume Down for a few seconds until you see the Android logo on the screen. (This key combination varies with some manufacturers.)
  2. Use the Volume Up and Volume Down keys to navigate to Recovery Mode.
  3. Press the Power button.
  4. Use the Volume keys to select Wipe Data/Factory Reset and press the Power button.
  5. Finally, select the Yes—Erase all Data option and press the Power button.

The reset process will take several minutes to complete.

Your Android Device Might Be Broken

If nothing here has worked, it might be time to face the reality that you need a new phone. Remember, some phones are specifically designed for use in dirty or rugged areas. If you find you keep encountering gunked up ports, one of these devices might be the best solution.

Tablet Touchscreen Not Working? 8 Tips to Fix Touch Problems

We've all been there. Tapping, swiping or zoom-pinching, there's often a moment when the touchscreen display on your tablet refuses to respond. How do you overcome this, and achieve tablet-tapping Zen?

Here's everything you need to know about how to fix a tablet touchscreen that is not responding.

Why Your Tablet Touchscreen Doesn't Respond

As the primary mode of interaction between you and your apps, the tablet touchscreen is vitally important. Any damage inflicted – knocks to the device, scratches or worse – will degrade the touchscreen. Short of paying for a replacement, you will need to make sure the display is kept safe and intact.

What might cause a touchscreen to stop responding? Consider the following:

  • A dropped or knocked tablet screen suddenly not working might have a dislodged touchscreen digitizer
  • Dropping or jarring the tablet can affect the cable connecting the digitizer to the mainboard resulting in display and responsiveness issues
  • Dirt, dust, hair, and other detritus can confuse the touchscreen
  • Scratches and cracks will reduce touchscreen reliability

There are several things you can do to help with this.

  • Apply a screen protector
  • Use a tablet case with a soft interior – it might cost a few extra dollars but is worth it in the long run
  • Avoid placing your tablet face down on hard surfaces as the tiniest bit of dirt can cause destructive scratches on the display

The following tips – also suitable for smartphones – will help you resolve your tablet's touchscreen responsiveness issues. We've designed this guide for all touchscreen tablet computers, running iOS, Android, or Windows.

1. Make More RAM Available

Perhaps the best place to start in troubleshooting screen responsiveness issues is to make more system RAM available. This may take a moment but should give you an idea of how bad the problem is.

Android users have a wealth of options for freeing up space on tablets, such as clearing the app cache or using third party apps. Our guide to spring cleaning your Android should come in handy here.

Memory issues on an iPad can lead to slow responses from your touchscreen. The best way to deal with this is to close any apps that you're not using:

  1. Double click Home
  2. Swipe up on each unneeded app to close

After you've closed all the apps you no longer need, your tablet should be more responsive. Jailbroken iPads can run task management apps, meanwhile, which will help you to close any running processes you don't need.

If your Microsoft Surface touchscreen is not working, or you use a different Windows 10 tablet, close as many desktop apps as is practical can before switching to the Start screen. Then:

  1. Hold WIN+TAB to display the task switching view
  2. Tap the X on each app to close

If freeing up some RAM helps with your touchscreen tablet's responsiveness, then this should be all you need to do.

2. Touchscreen Not Working? Restart Your Tablet

Further troubleshooting can be performed by restarting your tablet. When the device restarts, most applications will be closed.

Restarting a tablet isn't a case of just tapping the power button to turn the screen off. Instead, the whole device must be switched off and back on again.

For Android users, this shouldn't be too much of a problem. Just hold the power button down and select Restart.

iPad owners should close each open app before holding the Sleep/Wake button and dragging slide to shutdown. If closing apps isn't possible, your model of iPad will determine how to restart.

For the iPad Air:

  1. Hold Power and Home until the tablet restarts
  2. Release when you see the Apple logo

On the iPad Pro:

  1. Press and release the Volume Up button
  2. Repeat with the Volume Down button
  3. Press and hold Power until the tablet restarts

Windows tablet owners can restart their devices by tapping Start then Power > Restart. If the device fails to respond, hold the power button for 10 seconds to reboot.

3. How Do I Fix My Tablet When It Won't Respond to Touch?

If your tablet's touchscreen is not working, you're probably wondering how you can troubleshoot it in any meaningful way.

After all, how do you fix an unresponsive touchscreen when most of your options are accessible through the screen? The answer is surprisingly simple: connect a mouse.

With Windows tablets this is straightforward and somewhat obvious. But what about Android tablets?

If you have a USB mouse handy and an OTG adapter for your Android device, you can connect them up. Assuming your tablet is otherwise operational, it should recognise the mouse, providing access to the settings you need for repair.

4. Use System Apps to Detect Unresponsive Touchscreen Areas

Often when a tablet touchscreen is being unresponsive, the problem can be localized to a portion of the display.

Knowing which area(s) of the touchscreen are failing to respond correctly can be useful in diagnosing what is wrong. This information would prove useful to any engineer who ends up repairing the tablet.

A useful means of checking which areas of your display work and which don't is to employ a couple of apps.

With a calculator app you can test simple taps across the display. Use the screen rotate function to check the tablet in all orientations.

A maps app, meanwhile, can be used to determine problems with dragging and pinch-to-zoom.

5. Calibrate Your Tablet's Touchscreen

Calibrating your tablet display can resolve many touchscreen detection issues.

For iPad, there is no calibration tool available or required. However, if you are using a jailbroken device that is registering your taps and swipes incorrectly, perform a hard reset. This will undo the jailbreak, but your device should work again.

On Android, free calibration and testing apps are available. Touchscreen Calibration will help you spot issues with touchscreen responsiveness. Meanwhile, Touch Screen Test is designed to help you find specific areas where input is not detected.

Windows 10 users can calibrate their tablet for touch or stylus.

  1. Tap Start and type "control panel"
  2. Click Control Panel > Hardware and Sound
  3. Click Tablet PC Settings
  4. Select Calibrate the screen for pen and touch input
  5. Choose the display then click Calibrate
  6. Select Pen input or Touch input
  7. Follow the instructions to calibrate the display

6. Call an Engineer to Fix Your Tablet Touchscreen

As you may already realize, some tablet touchscreen problems are so bad that you will need an engineer.

For devices that are in warranty, this means contacting the manufacturer and arranging a return, or dropping into a store. iPads, for example, can be taken to Apple Stores; Samsung tablets can similarly be taken to Samsung stores. In some cases, doorstep repairs are possible, where the device is repaired in a mobile Samsung-approved workshop parked outside your home. If your Samsung tablet touchscreen is not working, this fast-repair option might be available.

Whether you're using a Samsung, LG, iPad, or your Lenovo tablet touch screen is not working, check your device manufacturer's support pages to find the correct steps to arrange repair. Make it clear what steps you have attempted to resolve the touchscreen issues.

7. Realign the Tablet Display

This is a risky option that sometimes pays off. However, only attempt if you have a device that is out of warranty and can't afford a professional repair. It's more suited to cheaper Android tablets rather than top end Samsungs, iPads, or Windows tablets.

It basically involves you removing and resetting the display, aiming for improved touchscreen response.

Before you grab your tablet check if you can find the tools and instructions for disassembling your device. YouTube is a great source if you can find a video for your device.

However, don't take this step lightly; perform as much research as possible before you begin to break your tablet open.

8. Replace a Cracked Tablet Screen

As noted above, if your tablet screen is cracked and touch is not working, it can impact reliability. Whether it's big or small, a cracked tablet screen will always end up not working. Having your tablet looked at by an engineer under warranty is the smart option but isn't always possible. If your tablet is out of warranty and the screen is cracked, you have two options:

  • Pay for repair
  • Repair it yourself

Paying for a repair shouldn't be too expensive. Often, the repair can be done the same day – in city centers, repair shops can often do it while you wait. This depends on the tablet model and the parts the shop has in stock, however.

Wondering how to repair a tablet touch screen yourself? For cheaper tablet models repair makes more sense than with premium brands. So, if you have a Vankyo, Onn, Contixo or Amazon Fire tablet with a screen that is not working, consider replacing the display yourself.

Get Your Tablet Touchscreen Working Again

We've covered all bases here, providing you with the most effective ways to resolve problems with your tablet's touchscreen:

  1. Make more RAM available
  2. Restart your tablet
  3. Connect a mouse to help adjust settings
  4. Use apps to detect unresponsive areas
  5. Calibrate the touchscreen
  6. Call an engineer
  7. Realign the display
  8. Replace a cracked tablet touchscreen

Most problems can be avoided with care, a screen protector, and a case for your tablet. But where possible, avoid water and don't get your tablet wet.

android wont turn on

You turn on your Android phone or tablet by pressing its power button &#; simple. If that button won&#;t work, your device isn&#;t necessarily broken &#; there are ways to bring it back to life.

This problem can also be caused by hardware damage. Your phone or tablet may not be powering on because it&#;s broken. But, if there&#;s a software problem, the steps here will fix it.

Charge Your Phone or Tablet For a Few Minutes

If your Android device&#;s battery is almost dead, you&#;ll often see an &#;empty battery&#; indicator on the screen when you try to turn it on. But, if you let the battery completely die, your phone or tablet won&#;t respond at all when you press the Power button.

To fix this problem, just plug your Android phone or tablet into a wall charger and let it charge. You can&#;t just plug it in and try to turn it on immediately &#; you&#;ll need to give it a few minutes to charge first.

Plug it in and let it charge for fifteen minutes or so. Come back later and try to power it on with the Power button. If the problem was caused by a dead battery, it should boot up normally.

If it doesn&#;t work at all, try plugging the device in with a different cable and charger. The charger or cable could be broken and preventing an otherwise-good device from charging.

Pull the Battery or Long-Press the Power Button

RELATED:How to Power Cycle Your Gadgets To Fix Freezes and Other Problems

Like other operating systems, Android can sometimes hard-freeze and refuse to respond. If Android is completely frozen, your device may be powered on and running &#; but the screen won&#;t turn on because the operating system is frozen and not responding to button presses.

You&#;ll need to perform a &#;hard reset,&#; also known as a &#;power cycle,&#; to fix these types of freezes. This cuts the power to your phone or tablet entirely, forcing it to shut down and boot back up.

On a phone or tablet with a removable battery, you can remove the battery, wait about ten seconds, and then plug the battery back in and boot it up.

On a phone or tablet without a removable battery &#; that includes most modern Android devices &#; you&#;ll need to long-press the Power button. Press your device&#;s Power button and hold it down. You should only have to hold the Power button down for ten seconds, but you may have to hold it down for thirty seconds or longer. This will cut the power to your phone or tablet and force it to boot back up, fixing any hard freezes.

Perform a Factory Reset From Recovery Mode

RELATED:How to Factory Reset Your Android Phone or Tablet When It Won't Boot

In some cases, your phone or tablet might begin booting, but the Android operating system might crash or freeze immediately.

To fix this, Android can boot straight to a recovery mode menu, where you can perform a factory reset. If your device is booting up before freezing or experiencing other serious problems, use recovery mode to perform a factory reset.

To do this, you&#;ll first need to power down your phone or tablet and then boot it up by holding down several buttons at the same time. The exact combination of buttons you need depends on your device. Perform a web search for the name of your device and &#;recovery mode&#; to find the buttons it needs. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S6 requires you to hold Volume Up + Home + Power.

Restore Your Device&#;s Firmware

RELATED:How to Manually Upgrade Your Nexus Device with Google's Factory Images

If your device&#;s software is damaged, the factory reset process might not work. You may need to restore the Android operating system from an image provided by your device manufacturer. For example, this may occur if you&#;ve been messing around with custom ROMs or otherwise performing low-level tweaks to the system software.

Depending on the device you have and its manufacturer, this can be easy or hard. For example, Google provides easily installable firmware images, which you can install manually. For other devices, search the web for the name of your device and &#;reinstall firmware&#; to find instructions. If you&#;re lucky, the manufacturer will give you an easy way to do this.


Android also has a hidden &#;safe mode&#; you can boot into, which works just like Safe Mode on Windows. In safe mode, Android won&#;t load any third-party software, only system software.

On some devices, you can only boot into safe mode from the phone while it&#;s already running. On other devices, you may be able to press a certain button while the phone is booting to have it boot into safe mode. Perform a web search for the name of your device and &#;safe mode&#; if you want to try using safe mode. This will only work if some sort of third-party application is freezing your device after it boots. This normally shouldn&#;t be possible, but it could happen.

Fix My Tablet! Common Android Tablet Issues and How to Fix Them

Fix My Tablet! Common Android Tablet Issues and How to Fix Them

 Tech Castle    -     February 4,

You just spent all this money on your Android tablet, and now you’re having problems with it.

Before you completely give up and ditch it, know that most of the problems that you could have with it are fixable.

Turning the tablet off and restarting it is always a good place to start, but maybe that didn’t work for your particular problem.

Do Android tablet issues have you screaming “fix my tablet!!”? Read on for common Android tablet issues and how to fix them.

Won’t Turn On or Off

Sometimes the Android Tablet will just freeze, refusing to turn on or off. When this happens, pressing the lock screen button won’t do what it’s supposed to.

There is a fix for this though. Just press the power and the lock key at the same time and hold it for 8 seconds. This is like the power on/off backup for when the actual one doesn’t work.

App Issues

Sometimes the apps we use don’t work the way we want them to. Sometimes the whole screen can freeze, or the app refuses to shut down. Sometimes it’ll give you a heads up letting it know that the app isn’t working, and other times it won’t.

If you do get a warning that the app is acting up, just hit the Force Close button to shut down the app. Wait a few seconds, open it back up, and it should be running normally again. To force close an app, you just need to swipe it away in the multitask menu.

If that doesn’t work, and if the app just keeps crashing, there may be a different issue causing this problem. Developers release updates to their app to keep improving it all the time, and if you don’t have automatic updates turned on, you may need to manually go in and update the app.

If you are running an older version of the app, this can be why your app hasn’t been working correctly. If this is actually the reason, installing the update should fix this problem.

Music Won’t Stop Playing

This issue can become really annoying really quickly.

If you were playing music and now can’t seem to get it to shut off while you’re trying to do other things on the tablet, there are a few things you can do.

You may need to go back into the app to try and hit pause or stop. You can get to the play controls through the app, on the lock screen, and sometimes in your notification area.

If this doesn’t work, you can try shutting down the app, and if that doesn’t work, you can try to restart your tablet.

Stuck in Portrait Mode

Maybe you want to watch your favorite movie or TV show on your tablet, but you can’t get it to switch from portrait orientation to landscape.

Some apps just don’t have the capability to do that, so make sure that the app isn’t one of those first.

But if it isn’t one of those apps, next go into settings and make sure that the orientation lock isn’t on. Sometimes people have this on so when they use their device while lying down, so they don’t have to keep switching between the orientation.

If you turn the rotation lock off, then the screen should be able to move to landscape.

W-Fi Problems

Sometimes an issue with your tablet may just be because it’s not connected to the Wi-Fi.

If this seems to be your issue and you can’t get it to connect for whatever reason, turn on Airplane mode for about thirty seconds to a minute, turn it off, and then try connecting to the Wi-Fi again. Doing this resets the Wi-Fi without having to restart your entire device.

The Touch Aspect of the Touchscreen Doesn’t Work

When the touch screen on your tablet doesn’t work, you really can’t use it. This is a major problem, and you might be wondering if you can’t touch the screen, how are you supposed to fix it?

If you dropped your tablet or the tablet fell off the table and the screen cracked, you may have to take to get it repaired.

If the screen isn’t damaged, at least not that you can tell, you may just have to charge your tablet. Sometimes if the battery is low, the tablet won’t be able to run at its peak capability. Plugging the tablet in and letting it charge for a little while may let you use the touchscreen again.

The Screen Is Too Difficult to See

If you find yourself squinting at the screen but still unable to see it because the brightness is too low, don’t worry. This is fixable.

Simply turning up the brightness up could solve the problem. You could do this in the setting app.

However, you should also know that Android tablets also come with a very small light sensor on the front of your tablet. This sensor detects how bright or dark the light is wherever you’re using the tablet and tries to adjust the brightness for you so that you don’t waste battery life.

But it’s not always accurate. If the sensor is covered, it will make the screen really dark. Sometimes it will give you the wrong brightness setting, making the feature somewhat annoying.

You can turn it off though. Just go to the settings and disable it. Once you turn it off though, it will be up to you to manually change the brightness.

Battery Keeps Running Out

As with any electronic device, the battery always poses a problem. People always complain that the battery runs out too quickly, and while it may just be a faulty battery, there could be some things you can do to get a little extra juice.

The easiest place you can start with by adjusting your brightness. Like we mentioned above, turning off the automatic brightness can drain your battery even more. The brighter the screen, the more battery will be used.

You can also check your location services. Some apps do require access to your location, but when every app is using your location and running in the background, your battery will not last as long. Turning unnecessary location tracking off can help prolong your battery life.

There may even be a battery saving mode on your tablet, which would be located in your settings. This will dim your brightness, turn off some of the locations, turn off the ability for your apps to refresh in the background, and may even limit notifications.

Tablet Isn’t Charging

If your child is using your tablet or their own, a lot of the times they may come to you asking, “Can you fix my tablet?”

Many times when they ask this, it may be as simple as just charging the tablet. But what if the charging doesn’t work?

If your tablet doesn’t charge properly, this becomes a problem because then you won’t be able to use it. This is one problem that you really need to figure out how to fix, just like the touchscreen not working.

You can start troubleshooting this problem by going to the source of the power. Is there electricity going to the power source? Some wall sockets need to have the light switch turned on before electricity will flow to it, so make sure that the socket isn’t one of those.

If you are plugging the USB cord into your computer to charge your tablet, make sure that you are plugging the USB into the right socket. If you’re not sure if it’s your tablet or the computer port, try plugging something else in to see if that charges. Make sure that your computer is also turned on because it won’t charge your tablet when it’s turned off.

If the wall socket or the computer aren’t the problem, the next thing to check would be to make sure the cord is working. The charging codes aren’t very durable and don’t last forever. They can fray easily, exposing wires and ruining the connection of electricity to your tablet. You could try buying a new cable.

With that being said, you should also make sure that you are using the right cord to charge your Android tablet. Some tablets don’t use a USB cord to charge; they have their own special charging tablet.

Gets Too Hot

Sometimes when you use the tablet too much, it becomes too hot. With all the reports of Samsung phones exploding and catching on fire, you may be worried about your device overheating.

It’s not uncommon for tablets to become too hot when you are using them a lot or running an app that takes up a lot of your battery life. When it starts getting warm, just take a break from using it for a little bit.

If you’re not running a lot of apps and your tablet is still overheating, you may want to take it into a professional and have someone check it out. It could be a sign of something going wrong inside of your tablet with the hardware. This would be a problem that would be difficult to fix on your own.

Google Play Isn’t Working

If your play store won’t connect, then you can’t download any new apps or install new updates to make sure your apps work properly.

If it’s not loading or running correctly, you may need to clear your cache if it became corrupted. To clear this, you can do this in settings.

Once in settings, you can go to:

  1. Applications
  2. All Apps
  3. Google Play Store
  4. Storage
  5. Clear Cache

After doing that, restart your tablet and the problem should be resolved.

If that doesn’t work, you may have to clear the history. Go into the app and find the three lines that should be in the upper left-hand corner.

Once you go into the settings located in the app, just hit clear local search history, and your app should start working again.

It Won’t Sync

You want to make sure that your tablet will sync to a backup source so that if something ever happens to your tablet, you won’t lose all your photos, contacts, and important information.

If you sync through Google or Dropbox, first make sure that those servers aren’t down. If other people are experiencing issues with the syncing, it’s probably not a problem on your end. You will just have to wait for the technicians on the service’s side to fix it.

If the problem is on your side, however, you should make sure that you are connected to the Wi-Fi so that it can back up.

If you are connected, make sure that you are also signed in. If you previously reset your password, you may need to enter the new one before it will start to back up.

If you’re still having issues and it won’t back up, you can try deleting the apps and removing your account from the device. This may solve the issue.

The Last Resort

So you’ve run through all of these solutions and troubleshooting, and you’re still searching “how to fix my tablet.”

If you’ve determined that it’s not a hardware problem that someone else could fix, there is one last resort you can take.

But only do this if you feel like you have no other option. You can completely wipe your tablet clean and reset it to its original factory settings. This means that it will go back to how it was when you first bought it.

Before you do this, you should definitely backup your tablet so that you don’t lose any of your data. Once you do the reset, you can actually restore your tablet to that backup.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the settings app.
  2. Go to backup and reset.

This will backup your data to make sure that you don’t lose it all in the resetting. Then you will actually follow through with resetting it.

  1. Click factory data reset.
  2. Choose either reset tablet (or reset device button depending on which device you have).
  3. You may need to unlock the tablet at this point if you have extra locks.
  4. Click erase everything (or delete all depending on which device you have).

Once you complete these steps, your tablet will be reset to its original settings and hopefully will also fix your problem.

Hopefully, some of these solutions answered your question: “how do I fix my tablet?”

If none of the solutions here worked, you can always take it into a professional who will be able to diagnose what is wrong with your tablet and get it working soon.
