I had a similar problem with a tablet of a different make. What worked for me (so hopefully for you too) was that on the back of the tablet there was a reset button. It is very small, just about big enough to press a straightened out paperclip into it. Or you can use a pin, or an allen wrench if you have one small enough. Press down on the reset button for about 3-5 seconds. If your tablet is already on and stuck at the coby part when you do this you should notice it trying to reboot. If you do it while the tablet is off the tablet will start itself after a few seconds of pressing the button. Of course please realize there may not be such a button on your model. But search the back and the sides for a small hole that might even say "reset" nest to it or consult the paperwork that came with your tablet for info on how to reset the tablet back to factory default.

Hi, I am Steve, lets help solve your issue.
I am afraid the information you have been given is completely wrong. There is not such thing as plug and play in the android world. Android was initially developed for use on embedded devices and as such had no need to recognise external devices automatically. Version 2.1 (as installed on your device) is now quite old and cannot support it. Even the new version (froyo -2.2) does not support it.

Your device does come with a built in wireless adaptor, so you don't need a USB wireless adaptor.

My tabet wont turn on

First make sure your charger is working properly. Check it with a volt meter or use a friends charger that you know is working. Charge your Coby Kyros for 4 hours. Use a small needle and gently insert in into the "reset" hole on the back cover on the left side. Hold it down for 5 seconds then release. Try restarting your tablet. If these don't work, you will have to get professional help to check it out.

My tablet wont turn on

if the charge light comes on then the unit may need to be replaced. Try connecting it to a PC to see if it detects it. If it does, you may be able to reinstall the firmware.

My tablet wont turn on it continues to blink but wont turn on

Try using a paperclip to reset it on the back, hold it in for 5 seconds, if that doesnt work:
Turn the tablet all the way off, press and hold the VOL - and power at the same time for 8 to 9 seconds, it will show a green android guy with a system recovery menu. Use vol - to go down to Wipe Data/Factory Reset, press the power button to select it, go down to 'yes' to confirm, press the power button to select it, it will wipe the tablet, you then press the power button on 'reboot system'.
