Have you tried turning off tablet with charger plugged in and letting it charge up. You should see a battery symbol come onto the screen with a pulsing level indicating the battery is being charged. hold in power till unit turns off then plug in charger cable into tablet and switch on charger at power point . Do not try and push power switch to power up tablet see if screen indicates charging is occurring. I have experienced this exact problem on a samsung tablet !

SOURCE: Motion Computing C5 Tablet PC won't power on

Hi! I do understand that you are having the problem on the laptop turning on. Try another option, turn off laptop, remove cables and battery, press and hold power button for 10 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Then turn it on. If the laptop did not turned on, remove the power cable and turned on the laptop. If still didn't, remove the battery and insert the power cable. If still did not work then check if there lights flashed on the laptop when turning it on. If still does not, then you need to contact the pc manufacturer for repair and possible replacement. Otherwise, if there is light on the laptop, then there might be a problem either the battery or the power cable itself. If there is light on the laptop but no power cable, most likely the monitor did not work simply because the battery works due to the fact that there is light on the laptop. On the other hand if there is light when plugging in the power cable on the laptop, then you need to check and insert another battery if it works. Otherwise you need to replace the battery...

If holding down the power button for 10 seconds (theoretically, try holding it down for ages and be patient) doesn't reset your device, you may have to wait for the battery to run flat, then try the reset procedure again.
Hope this helps, Alistair

SOURCE: my sylvania tablet will not charge or power on, i've tried the hard reset and it didnt work do you think that the charger is bad or thetablet is defective

(will not charge or power on)I sent my smartphone in for repair the other day.They told me it was water damage in the charging point
i have never had it near water but apparently having the phone in high humidity places is common for it to happen eg talking on phone under bus stop in the rain, having phone somewhere in bathroom while having shower,
holding phone over hot coffee? hope you get it fixed :p

How to restart my tablet without turning it on because I forgot my password?


Look in your tablet instruction book for a procedure called 'hard reset' or a location for a small hole on the edge or back of the tablet where you can push in something non-conductive, like a toothpick to press a hidden reset switch. Without having a make and model for your tablet, it is hard to determine what exactly to do because each make and model is different. You talk about pressing the power and low volume buttons- are you holding them both in simultaneously for 10 seconds? This might be the reset procedure for your tablet, but that is not clear. One last thing to try is to hold in the power button for 10 seconds and see if you get a power off screen. If you get this, try powering off the tablet and then restarting. Also make sure the keyboard isn't on caps lock when you type your password.

My tablet want come on what's wrong with it


I've had the same problem with my RCA 10 inch tablet. I have charged it, tried the hard reset, used different chargers and even different outlets, and held the power button on for 60+ seconds with NO RESULTS! My recommendation is to contact RCA, which is what I am doing, and request an immediate replacement if yours is still under the 1 year manufacturers warranty. If you look these tablets up, you will see (as I have found) that this is apparently a common problem with the tablets. Wish I had known that prior to purchasing!

Nexus 7 won't turn on


Pop the back off, unplug the battery for about 30 seconds, plug the battery back in, put the back cover back on. You will find it will start no problem.

Try a different charger first, as it maybe faulty. If not the battery maybe faulty and I would purchase a new one.

ASUS T100 stuck at preparing automatic repair message will.not reboot


Hello there, i just owned a brand new Asus T100 for 2 days and today on the 3rd day after purchasing, i faced problems during boot/start up where the laptop gets frozen on the Asus logo screen.
I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds and turned it on again. It ran a series of windows software updates before the start up, then after all software updates have been completed, the laptop resumed to freeze at the Asus logo screen again. I tried holding the power button for 10 secs followed by holding the power button and volume up button at the same time, to get into automatic repair/repair mode. THIS HELPS, get into the repair mode!

To cut it short, i tried the other advanced options as well as the restart button in the repair mode but to no avail. After carefully reading the different options in the 'advanced options' in repair mode...
Here's what worked for me:
1) If you're stuck at the Asus logo screen which doesn't seem to boot for ages or at least 10 minutes, hold down the power button for 10 seconds and let the screen turn black. (I did this with my charger plugged in, not too sure if it matters)
2) Count to 10 seconds. Switch the laptop on by HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON + VOLUME UP BUTTON at the same time. This will send the laptop into an 'automatic repair', followed by a 'diagnosing this PC' and after which you will see a blue screen which is the repair mode.
3) On the blue screen you will see 2 buttons, 'Restart' and 'Advanced Options'. Click on 'Advanced Options'. (DO NOT CLICK RESTART, it does nothing as you will get stuck again at the logo screen)
4) After clicking 'Advanced Options', click 'Advanced ....' (i forgot what exactly) and click 'STARTUP REPAIR'. This is the crucial part.Then follow whatever the system promts you.
5) Afterwards, it will attempt to repair your system then lead you back to the logo screen for startup.
6) Wait a few minutes and you should be able to get to your login screen as usual.

Hope this helps. I chanced upon it by guessing which would actually help me.

My samsung galaxy tablet won't turn on. Please help.


  • my tablet did the same thing, all you have to do is make sure it is fully off, then you hold the power button for a short period of time, then you hold the volume button at the same time either up or down, (depending on which tablet you have) and wait until the android logo comes up. Then there are options, you are to choose ''wipe data factory reset button'' (you choose your options using the volume up/down button) wait maybe 30 seconds and then more options come up you choose ''reboot'' wait another 30 seconds, then turn it on it should work but if it doesn't work, take it back (if you still have the warrantee) and you could get a new one or the professional's fix it anyway hope this helps everyone. ;)
